What Is Different About Motorcycle Accidents In Florida?
Florida has what is called "No Fault" or "PIP" insurance. Basically, the first $10,000 of medical bills are paid by your own insurance company when you are in a car accident in Florida...it does not matter who is at fault for this portion of the payments. However, when it comes to a Motorcycle accident, it is treated differently than a car accident. Why you might ask? Because a motorcycle is not considered a "car" under the Florida definition for insurance purposes. Thus, there is no "PIP" insurance for a motorcycle accident. Rather, it is treated as a "legally uninsured" person for a car accident.
