Accidents of any kind, on any road, are dangerous incidents. But collisions involving a motorcycle are far more likely to involve life-altering injuries and widespread property damage. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle or scooter accident, it is important to speak with a skilled personal injury attorney with a strong track record of success in this particular area of the law.
For over a decade, Attorney Joseph C. Miller, P.A. has represented motorcycle accident victims in Jacksonville and throughout central Florida. Attorney Miller understands the intricacies of such cases, and what it takes to overcome the common obstacles to securing full compensation.
When you are injured in an auto accident, the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) portion of your policy covers the majority of your medical bills and lost wages, regardless of who is at fault in the accident. PIP coverage is required for all auto insurance policies, but it is not a requirement for motorcycle insurance. And while some insurance companies offer PIP on motorcycle policies, a large number of motorcycle owners do not carry it. This means that if you suffer an injury riding a motorcycle and do not have PIP coverage, the only way to secure just compensation for your injuries is to go after the other party.
Most motorcycle accident cases are settled out of court; once the blame for an accident is assigned, most responsible parties realize that they are only delaying the inevitable if they fight a settlement. However, if your case does go to court, Attorney Miller puts his extensive experience to work to fight aggressively for the compensation you deserve.
In the state of Florida, motorcycle riders have every right that is provided to drivers of four-wheeled vehicles. However, that does not always mean that other drivers on the road pay attention to motorcycles like they should. This, unfortunately, is why there is so much negligence and recklessness, causing numerous motorcycle accidents each year.
