The Biker Myth
There is a myth about motorcycle riders, and the opposing side in accident cases will try to exploit that myth. They will take advantage of the fact that many people, including members of juries, assume that a person is taking a risk simply by getting on a motorcycle or that people riding motorcycles are simply more likely to engage in dangerous driving.
Our attorneys know that this is a myth, particularly in this region, where people from all walks of life own motorcycles, celebrate Biketober Week and other festivals. We build our case to educate people, jury members in particular, that victims shouldn't be blamed for the recklessness of the drivers who truly caused the accident. This is how we get results.
Unique Insurance Challenges in Motorcycle Wreck Cases
There are two major differences between motorcycle crash cases and car crash cases. The first is the fact that a motorcyclist typically suffers more severe injuries, such as broken backs or brain damage, because of the lack of protection provided by their vehicle.
The second major difference is that insurance coverage is different in motorcycle accidents. Motorcycles aren't subject to Florida's PIP law and a lot of policies exclude coverage for these vehicles. This can create major problems, but problems that we know how to deal with.
