Motorcycle crash cases are subspecialty of our firm. I have ridden motorcycle since I was 15 years old. I started out on dirt bikes in Florida and competed in Florida Trail Riders Association until I was 21 years old. From there, I went on to other bikes and currently on five motorcycles, including Harley Davidson, sport bike, and I still have a dirt bike. I have ridden on racetracks throughout the country. I enjoy it. I understand how that those of you that ride motorcycles feel when you are out there on the road or in the dirt. However, when you are hurt because of a car or truck driver’s fault or because of some fault on the part of the manufacture of the motorcycle, you need an attorney that understands how motorcycles operate, what they can do, and more importantly what they cannot do. You need someone who understands the rules of the road as they apply to motorcycles. You also need an attorney that understands the law that applies to motorcycles. For instance, in Florida our PIP no fault law does not apply to motorcycles. What does that means, two things that come to mind instantly. First of all, you do not have the benefit of the $10,000 PIP medical payment or wage loss payment and that is bad news. However, we have ways to work on that, try to take care of those damages in the motorcycle case. We’re equipped, we have the knowledge, and we can deal with that issue. A second thing that comes to mind is actually a benefit to a motorcycle rider. In Florida, a motorcycle rider does not have to prove that they have suffered a permanent injury to be entitled to pain and suffering damages. Ride your motorcycle. Be careful, carry the adequate coverage. If you need us, we can help!
