Filing to recover for damages for any type of injury against a large insurance company is very difficult to do on your own. Doing so for a motorcycle accident can prove just as daunting. If you have been injured while riding your motorcycle it is important to find a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer that has experience in dealing with large insurance carriers and how they handle their claims practices.
One of the reasons why motorcycle claims are more complex than regular vehicle claims is due to the fact that our PIP law is only mandatory on vehicles with four or more wheels. A motorcyclist is not allowed to carry PIP insurance. On top of that, if that motorcyclist does own a car and has PIP on their auto, it will not carry over to their motorcycle or injuries that occur while riding their motorcycle. If the rider does not have their own policy there is a chance that they could have a difficult time paying their medical bills, let alone the loss of income if they become unable to work as a result of the accident.
If you are injured during a ride it is imperative to contact a local Boca Raton personal injury attorney. They will start to gather information and build a potential lawsuit for you to ensure that you are properly compensated for your injuries and lost wages.
If you are the motorcycle driver was not at-fault you could have the ability to seek compensation from the at-fault party. The damages that you seek will vary from case to case but will more than likely consist of medical damages, personal property damages, loss of wages, as well as pain and suffering.
