Do Florida No-Fault Laws Apply to Motorcycle Accidents?

Florida is a no-fault state, meaning most motorists must carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance as part of their auto insurance coverage. In a typical car accident claim, injured victims turn to their PIP coverage to recover compensation for medical expenses and lost wages, regardless of fault. However, motorcycle accident claims do not fall under the state’s no-fault system.
After an accident, you will need to prove that another person or party is liable for your injuries and damages if you wish to recover compensation. While this can be challenging, being free of the no-fault system means that you do not need to prove that you have sustained “serious injuries” to recover full compensation for your medical bills or lost wages. You can also recover compensation for non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering, through your personal injury lawsuit.

Proving Fault in Your Motorcycle Accident Claim

To recover compensation after a motorcycle accident in Florida, you will need to prove that another party (usually, though not always, another motorist) was at fault for the accident. The first step in proving fault is establishing the cause of the accident.

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

Because Florida follows a rule of pure comparative negligence, you do not need to prove that the other party was entirely at fault for the accident, only that they were partly to blame. If a jury finds that you shared some degree of fault, however, your total recovery will be reduced in proportion to your degree of blame. For example, if you are found to be 20% at fault for the accident, you can only recover up to 80% of the total amount you would have otherwise received if you were not found partly at fault.

Why You Need a Motorcycle Accident Attorney

After a motorcycle accident, you are likely to face numerous physical, emotional, and financial challenges. If you suffered a serious injury, such as a brain or spine injury, you could be facing months or even years of medical treatment. You may be unable to work during your recovery, putting you and your family under even greater financial stress.
Unfortunately, the insurance company is not on your side. Insurance adjusters will often do everything they can to reduce your payout or deny your claim. When you are already dealing with getting proper medical treatment, repairing your bike, and taking time off work to heal, fighting the insurance company is the last thing you need. That’s where we come in.

As your legal team, we can handle everything, from gathering appropriate supporting evidence to submitting your claim to negotiating with the insurance company.
