At Morgan & Barbary, many of our attorneys are avid motorcyclists who have been riding for many years. We have all had close calls with our bikes and understand not only the thrill and exhilaration of the ride, but also the dangers inherent with that freedom. In our experience, motorcycle riders are very careful in the operation of their bikes because they know the danger of severe injury should they lose control of their vehicle. We find that careless or distracted automobile drivers cause most motorcycle accidents. Unfortunately, motorcycle riders are far less protected in these accidents, and are far more likely to be severely injured as a result.

Special Rules Apply
Florida has special rules that apply for motorcyclists that are much different than those that apply to an automobile driver, and these rules make handling a motorcycle crash much more difficult than a standard automobile liability claim. Unlike Florida’s No-Fault insurance laws that require automobile owners to carry certain levels of insurance, No-Fault laws don’t apply to motorcycles, and therefore insurance that is normally there for injured automobile drivers is simply not available for motorcyclists. An injured motorcyclist will immediately incur emergency medical bills and lost wages with no immediate source of insurance recovery. That means no money to pay your bills, and no money for medical treatment. This is why it is so important to move your claim forward quickly and explore every avenue possible to provide you the recovery you are entitled to.
At Morgan & Barbary, years of representing injured motorcycle riders have taught us the need to explore every avenue of recovery. Many times, when a motorcycle rider is injured in an accident, the person who caused the accident doesn’t have enough insurance to pay for the injuries and damages he, or she, caused. When that happens, the injured rider may be entitled to money from Uninsured Motorists coverage available on his own car or truck, even if the motorcycle is not listed on the automobile insurance policy.
The attorneys of Morgan & Barbary are passionate about their rights as motorcyclists and this provides us with added insight in helping injured motorcycle riders. We understand how important it is that you are fully compensated for the injuries you suffer in an accident. Our personal injury attorneys understand how Florida’s motorcycle laws and insurance regulations apply to your case. We will not only represent you on your injury and property damage claims, we will help you find the quality doctors and medical treatment you need to address your injuries, and we will help negotiate your medical bills when your case is resolved.
