Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Boca Raton
Injured in a motorcycle crash in Palm Beach County?
Countless accidents occur on our roads every year, but some of the most dangerous situations involve motorcycles. As a motorcyclist, it is crucial that other drivers look out for you. Being less noticeable and having a substantially lower amount of protection than other vehicles can put you at risk of serious injuries in the event of an accident. In fact, reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have stated that around 80% of motorcycle accidents involve serious injuries.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, in addition to the physical hardship you face, you may deal with the high cost of recovery. Was there someone responsible for your accident? If it can be proven that they acted negligently in some way, they may be liable for compensation. It's important as an accident victim that you receive the damages you deserve. Let our Boca Raton motorcycle accident lawyer help.

What is the Florida Motorcycle Helmet Law?
Florida Title XXIII Chapter 316.211 states that motorcyclists over the age of 21 may decide whether or not to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle, but must carry at least $10,000 in medical coverage if they opt to not wear a helmet. Anyone under 21 is required to wear a helmet.
While Florida does not require individuals over the age of 21 years to wear helmets, making the decision to wear a helmet when riding you bike can potentially save your life. In the event of a crash, your medical expenses can more than likely double if you were not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
It is also important to keep in mind that most states do require riders to wear helmets, which means that you are responsible for knowing the laws of whichever states you may be riding in outside of Florida. Stay safe and understand the laws!
