MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

Personal Injury Protection (PIP), a normal component of a Florida automobile insurance policy, and No-Fault law do not typically apply to motorcycles in Florida. Therefore, we always recommend to our clients who drive motorcycles to maintain and purchase both health insurance and Medical Payment (MedPay) coverage. Typically, if you have either health insurance or MedPay coverage, you may not have to wear a helmet in the State of Florida. This adds a particular exposure to devastating injuries. Helmets do provide an added layer of protection against catastrophic injuries such as head trauma, traumatic brain injuries, concussion, hematoma, or brain bleeds, etc. In motor vehicle collision involving a motorcycle, the motorcyclist can be often ejected from the bike and thereafter sustain serious injuries.
