Florida Motorcycle Accident Laws

Legal Guidance from Our Jacksonville Personal Injury Attorney

Laws in the state of Florida regarding motorcycle accidents can be confusing and require the knowledgeable assistance of our Jacksonville personal injury lawyer. The Florida Department of Motor Vehicles defines a motorcycle as a vehicle with two or three wheels that has an engine of 50 cc or more. Florida motorcyclists are protected under a motorcycle law that makes reckless vehicle drivers responsible for damages to the injured motorcyclist. Individuals injured from a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of the driver of a larger vehicle can pursue just compensation from the liable party. Speak with our Jacksonville personal injury lawyer today for the guidance you need.

If you have sustained an injury, we encourage you to take action at once to ensure that you file your case before the four-year statute of limitations is expired. We can discuss the likelihood of your case resulting in success. As a "verbal threshold state," Florida requires damages for injuries to meet one of the following requirements:

  • Serious impairment of a body function
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Wrongful death

You can receive damages for your motorcycle accident if the verbal threshold is met and if it can be proven that the other party is liable for your injuries. As Florida is a no-fault state, your recoverable damages will depend on whether your injuries are of a permanent nature.
