Motorcycle Accident Injuries in DeLand, Daytona Beach, and throughout Volusia County
We are lucky to live in a part of the country that attracts bikers and other tourists. However, with this good fortune (and good weather) comes the price of a high rate of automobile and motorcycle accidents. In fact, as our Bike Week and other events have become increasingly popular, the number of crashes has increased.
Motorcycle accidents are especially troublesome because they usually involve more serious injuries than automobile accidents and riders typically do not have adequate insurance coverage to pay for the necessary medical care.
Although Florida law requires all automobile drivers to have $10,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance, motorcyclists do not have PIP coverage. Instead, they must have at least $10,000 in medical coverage. In addition, extending uninsured motorist coverage to your motorcycle is a good idea to ensure that if you are hit and injured by an uninsured motorist, there will be insurance funds available to help you.
Unfortunately, no matter how many precautions you take, both when riding and when insuring your ride, as a motorcyclist, you are very vulnerable to being seriously injured and not getting the compensation you need from your insurance company to pay for necessary medical care and related problems. In fact, all too often victims of motorcycle injury crashes are further victimized by their own insurance companies.
