Do I Have Grounds for a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

Although drivers in Florida are required to carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, motorcycle riders are an exception; however, if you decided to purchase no-fault insurance, you may have grounds for a claim no matter who was liable for your crash. If you do not carry this insurance but your crash was caused by another party’s negligence, you may have grounds for a claim against the liable party and/or their insurance company.

Whether or not you have grounds for a third-party claim ultimately comes down to the cause of your accident. Your Palm Beach Gardens motorcycle accident lawyer must be able to prove that:

  • Another party breached a duty of care owed to you;

  • The breach of duty was a proximate cause of your crash; and

  • You suffered an injury or loss as a result.

The vast majority of motorcycle wrecks are caused by driver errors. Motorists breach the duty of care they owe to other road users when they speed, make illegal turns, drive under the influence of alcohol, and violate other traffic laws. When this breach of duty results in a crash, the liable party may be held financially accountable for any resulting damages.

If you file a third-party claim, the success of your case will hinge on the strength of the evidence available to prove liability and damages. At Donaldson & Weston, we know what it takes to help motorcycle accident victims recover the full compensation they deserve. If we determine that your case has merit, we will begin an immediate investigation and prepare for settlement negotiations as if we are going to trial. If necessary, we will file subpoenas for evidence that is being withheld and bring in medical and financial experts to assist with the investigation and provide testimony.
