Motorcycle accidents can leave their riders with very severe injuries and tragically, far too often, death as well. Special care, skill and knowledge is required to operate a motorcycle safely.
In the State of Florida, some insurance benefits, and rules are different for owners of motorcycles, than owners of automobiles. For example motorcycle riders are required to wear helmets unless they are over 21 years of age and have a minimum of $10,000 of medical insurance. Daytime headlights and approved protective eyewear are also mandatory. Despite these safeguards, serious injuries and deaths continue to occur because motorcycles don’t offer the same protection as an automobile.
