Florida law is quite clear in the motorcyclists and bikers have legal rights. These legal rights should be respected by other drivers. The vulnerability of motorcyclists for a serious personal injury is quite significant. However, it should be made clear that the a motorcyclist does not have any less rights or less entitlement to compensation than other injury victims. As such, there should be justice and fairness to the injured motorcyclists.The Legal Rights of the Injured Motorcyclist are Slightly Better Than Those of an Automobile Accident Injury Victim
David A. Wolf can inform you about your legal rights and those that are specifically tailored to injured motorcyclists. It should be pointed out that the injured motorcyclist has legal rights that are slightly better in some ways when compared to an automobile accident personal injury victim. An injured driver has to prove that he or she suffered a permanent injury to be entitled to certain forms of compensation. An injured motorcyclist does not have this threshold of permanency to prove as part of his or legal case.
Any person who rides and/or who owns a motorcycle in the State of Florida or other States should be familiar with the applicable rules of the road and the rules/laws as they pertain to compensation for personal injuries. For instance, a motorcycle rider 21 years of age and older does not have to wear a helmet if it can be showed that the rider has some form of health insurance or health benefits in place in the amount of $10,000. While many motorcyclists have no duty per se to wear a helmet, the insurance company can still attempt to place some of the fault or cause of the personal injuries (especially those related to the face and head) on the motorcyclist who was not wearing a helmet.Contact David A.
