Danger on the Open Road
Per mile traveled, the number of motorcycle fatalities is more than 27 times higher than passenger cars. Helmets make a difference: they are approximately 37% more effective in preventing deaths, and they are 67% effective in preventing traumatic brain injuries. Florida, however, does not require motorcyclists over the age of 21 to wear helmets. Give the lack of protection provided by an enclosed vehicle, they are more likely to be significantly injured or killed in the event of a crash.
Why You Need a Motorcycle Injury Attorney in West Palm Beach
Florida is a no-fault insurance state; drivers must own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage that pays for medical and certain non-medical costs resulting from an accident. Motorcycles are excluded from the PIP category. Riders are required, however, to own at least $10,000 in Medical Payment Insurance.
But what if your injuries exceed that limit? You may be able to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. An experienced West Palm Beach Motorcycle Lawyer from the LaBovick LaBovick & Diaz team will help you obtain the compensation you need to pay medical expenses, make up for lost wages, receive ongoing therapies, and move on – physically, psychologically, and financially – from your accident.
