Motorcycle Accidents: What you need to know.

Motorcycle AccidentMany times injuries from motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic. Pursuing a motorcycle accident claim can be difficult for many riders especially without the assistance of an attorney who is experienced in handling these types of cases. Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) requirement is only required for vehicles with four or more wheels, therefore riders are not permitted to carry PIP coverage. This is true even if the rider owns a car which is covered by PIP. An uninsured rider may have difficulties paying for medical expenses, especially if the injury prevents them from working. At Mitchell Law we are well versed with Florida-specific laws governing motorcycles- which can differ greatly from those regarding car accidents.
