Motorcycle accidents often result in severe injuries or death, due to the motorcyclist’s lack of protection and bodily exposure. Many motorcyclists opt not to wear a helmet and this makes them even more vulnerable. In order to legally not wear a helmet in Florida, the operator must carry at least $10,000 in medical coverage and be at least 21 years of age. Personal injury protection is not available for motorcyclists. Many motorcyclists do not realize this and an accident can wipe them out financially if they are found to be liable for damages. It is important to obtain experienced and aggressive legal representation if you were in a motorcycle accident. Attorney Brandon Stein represents motorcyclists and offers a free consultation to discuss your options.
A motorcycle accident may result in traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis, loss of limb use, broken bones and/or other extremely severe and permanent disabling injuries. If you were injured due to the negligent actions of another driver, it is of course in your best interest to retain an attorney who thoroughly understands how to prove this during insurance negotiations or during court proceedings. Attorney Brandon Stein may utilize the expertise of an investigator and accident reconstruction engineer in order to establish your innocence and that the other party was at fault. In some instances witnesses may be available. Sometimes digital imagery is obtainable from public or private cameras. A case must be properly crafted on your behalf.
Compensation for Your Injuries
In motorcycle accidents, damages may be pursued for present and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. A separate claim will be pursued for your damaged or destroyed motorcycle. If you have collision coverage – optional in Florida – you may pursue repair or replacement through your insurance company. If you do not have collision coverage, compensation may be sought from the property damage liability coverage of the party who is at fault. Compensation will be assessed at the motorcycle’s fair market value
