The beautiful South Florida weather and scenery makes it a great location for riding motorcycles, allowing drivers to enjoy the great outdoors while traveling from place to place. Unfortunately, this mode of transportation can be very dangerous, especially since the size of a motorcycle is no match for an automobile or truck and drivers sometimes fail to see motorcyclists on the road. Worse yet, Florida drivers are more distracted than ever by smart phone use, texting and driving, and other similar distractions. In 2012, there were 9,384 motorcycle crashes reported, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Those crashes resulted in 8,648 injuries to motorcyclists and their passengers, as well as 457 deaths. These facts demonstrate the likelihood of injury or death occurring from a motorcycle crash.
Florida motorcycle insurance coverage does not include medical payments coverage known as PIP which is a requirement for those driving four-wheel vehicles in the state of Florida. In fact, PIP coverage is not available to motorcyclists , even if they want to purchase it. This means that you are immediately responsible for paying your own medical bills for injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash. Therefore, it is important for motorcyclists injured in an accident in Florida, no matter what the extent of their injuries, to seek the counsel of an experienced motorcycle accident attorney in order to recover damages from the at-fault party.

There are differing insurance requirements and regulations governing motorcycle drivers and automobile drivers.
