Accident & Injury
Motorcycle Accident in Orlando
When it comes to car accidents, Florida is a no-fault state which means that regardless of who was at fault, both parties turn to their insurance companies for compensation for any injuries sustained or death. Unfortunately, motorcyclists do not have the same protection.
In Florida, motorcyclists are unable to obtain personal injury protection (also known as no-fault insurance). This means that you obtain no benefits after a crash. It does not matter if you sustained an injury and need medical benefits, or lost pay due to not being able to go to work from the injuries sustained, motorcycle owners must bear the consequences.
Naturally, this results in a good amount of financial hardship on individuals and their families and limits the quality of care that one can receive.
Under Florida common law, the specific actions taken that led to the accident are what will result in determining fault. In the case of a motorcyclist, interpreting these laws can be rather difficult as many topics are still undecided by the court. This is where hiring an experienced Attorney when it comes to the subject of a Motorcycle Accident in Orlando is essential.
The prosecution will do everything within their power to find ways of showing that the driver was negligent, driving recklessly, had shown misconduct or etc…
