Is It Mandatory To Wear A Helmet And Other Safety Gear While Riding A Motorcycle In Florida? How Would It Impact My Claim If I Was Not Wearing Safety Gear?
There is no law requiring you to wear a helmet over the age of 21 in Florida, but you do have to wear sunglasses. The insurance company might claim that your injuries are due to your lack of using a helmet and they might try to argue that the jury wouldn’t give you any money because it was your own fault. I would suggest that you do not believe any of those statements. If there was a negligent driver who was responsible for your injuries, regardless of you using a helmet or not, you have rights.
Are People Generally Biased Against Motorcycle Riders?
There is a misconception of a motorcycle rider as a wild person who wants to ride crazily down the road. This makes it easy for the insurance company to blame it on the motorcycle driver.
What Is The Value In Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney Who Has Specific Experience In Handling Motorcycle Accident Cases?
In Florida, you do not have to have insurance on your motorcycle. It is important to hire someone who knows about this type of law because there are still other avenues of getting coverage with insurance, even if you do not have insurance on your motorcycle.
