Florida Law Handles Motorcycle Accidents Differently
If you were the victim of a Central Florida motorcycle accident in Lake, Sumter, or Marion County, you may be unsure what your options are for paying for your medical care, bike repairs, and other expenses. Some people worry they are stuck managing these costs on their own despite the fact they played no role in causing their accident. Much of this confusion likely occurs because of Florida’s complex car insurance laws.
However, according to Florida Statute §324.021, the state’s no-fault and insurance rules do not apply to motorcycle accidents. Instead, you can file a lawsuit to hold the at-fault motorist accountable without meeting any other requirements based on the severity of your injuries.
There are many ways that motorcycle accidents occur, and many of them are the fault of other motorists. You may be able to pursue a case against a motorist if they caused your accident through:
- Failure to yield in an intersection
- An improper lane change
- Drunk, impaired, or distracted driving
- Drowsy or fatigued driving
- Following too closely
- A rear-end or side-impact collision
As a full-service law firm who works on virtually the full spectrum of Florida law, the team with Bogin, Munns & Munns has attorneys who can pursue compensation for you in your motorcycle accident case, if there is evidence to prove negligence and liability.
