Fort Myers Motorcycle Accident LawyersMotorcycle Accident

Due to the vulnerability of a motorcycle a Florida rider is much more likely to be seriously injured in even the slightest accident with any type of vehicle. Without the protection of a steel cage or airbags, the severity of these injuries is likely to be catastrophic and could even result in death of the rider.

These injuries can occur even when the rider operates his or her bike with the utmost concern for safe riding. This is due in part to the decreased visibility of a motorcycle with only two wheels and less lighting than even the smallest of automobiles.

Under Florida motorcycle accident law, an injured rider is able to recover for any and all damages that are caused by another vehicle. Given the fact that insurance is generally not required to register a motorcycle in Florida it may be a necessity to recover damages from the at fault driver. These damages can include: property damage, medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

If you or a loved one is injured, or killed, while riding a motorcycle, it is important to contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible do determine if there is a legal cause of action. Consulting a lawyer early would help to preserve any evidence before it is lost or destroyed, and get the injured party to an appropriate medical provider.
