Orlando Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Motorcycle accidents almost always carry serious injuries because of the lack of protection inherently provided by motorcycles themselves. Due to the nature of these often catastrophic accidents, hiring an experienced motorcycle attorney in Orlando is a necessity in order to ensure that you receive the proper compensation to cover your injuries and lost compensation.
At Hornsby Law, we are committed to helping victims of motorcycle accidents recover from their losses after an accident. We’ve been handling these claims for decades, serving Orlando and surrounding areas, and helping the victims of these accidents receive the compensation they need.

Florida Motorycle Accident Law
Florida’s personal injury protection (PIP) insurance is only required for vehicles with four wheels, making accidents involving motorcycles even more complicated due to coverage issues. in addition, according to Florida law, anyone operating a motorcycle must wear protective headgear and eye-protective devices, but anyone over the age of 21 may operate or ride a motorcycle without wearing protective headgear if they are covered by an insurance policy that provides for at least $10,000 in medical benefits for injuries that result from a crash. This discrepancy could mean a lot of uninsured accidents. Contact our Orlando injury attorneys for more information and assistance.
Orlando Motorcycle Claims
Motorcycle claims can be particularly challenging given that motorcycle drivers may or may not have insurance coverage, necessitating the assistance of an experienced motorcycle attorney in Orlando. This makes the investigation of the scene key, as your attorney will investigate what happened, the histories of the drivers, collect any statements from police and/or witnesses, review medical reports, and negotiate with any relevant insurance companies.
However, without the limitations associated with personal injury protection insurance—including being able to receive compensation for pain and suffering only for certain injuries—motorcycle claims also do not face these same limitations. For example, victims of these accidents can make a claim for damages associated with pain and suffering without having to have suffered from a particularly severe level of injury.
Similar to other auto accident claims, any associated motorcycle litigation will be based on a driver’s negligence, reckless driving, violation of local and federal laws, and sometimes even product liability claims against the relevant manufacturer. Compensation recovered can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, lost earning capacity, and others (depending upon the circumstances of the accident). However, there are several injuries that motorcycle drivers are more in danger of facing, and those include traumatic brain injuries, bone fractures, severe burns, and disfigurement.
