A motorcycle accident can cause an immense amount of damage and harm. Usually, the first thing a victim or the legal representatives of the victim would do would be to turn to the motorist’s insurance company, once you have exhausted the benefits of your policy agreement. Although, you may find out that motorist at fault does not have insurance. This may cause you distress and worry about the legal options available to you.
Despite Florida law declaring Florida a no-fault state, as outlined in Florida Statute 627.7407, it is still possible for you to seek some compensation for your accident through a lawsuit or an insurance settlement. The legal process surrounding your case may seem complex, but a Sarasota personal injury lawyer at The Law Place has the knowledge to guide you through everything.

Our practice areas cover Sarasota and the rest of Florida. Contact us today on (941) 444-4444 for a free consultation for your case and a chance to talk to an experienced attorney.
Reviewing Your Insurance
Florida Statute 627.736 states that anyone who operates a car is required to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. Although, it is important to understand that a person who operates a motorcycle is not yet required to have this same type of coverage. Nevertheless, if you have uninsured motorist protection on your insurance, there is a potential for you to be able to use this to seek some sort of compensation.
A Sarasota motorcycle accident lawyer at The Law Place can investigate both the motorcycle accident and the details of your policy agreement to see if this type of insurance you may have could benefit you and enhance your case. Our experienced legal team can evaluate all of your potential options for achieving compensation. Following that, they will set forward on a course of action to achieve you the justice that you deserve.
If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of a Sarasota motorcycle accident and you discover that the motorist does not have insurance, contact The Law Place today for advice and a free case evaluation.
Regardless of whether the motorcycle was insured or not, a motorcycle accident can potentially leave victims seriously injured. If you have been the innocent victim of a motorcycle accident, you may be able to recover compensation.
Despite the motorcycle not being insured, if an attorney at The Law Place is able to establish liability for the motorcycle accident, you may be able to recover compensation for your current and future medical bills, a loss of wages, a loss of future employment, and property damage. It is possible to also file for wrongful death if you have lost a relative in a motorcycle accident, even if the motorcycle does not have insurance (subject to your specific coverage).
Unfortunately, by the very nature of the motorcycle not having insurance, it means that the financial compensation achieved would nowhere near be the amount you could receive if they were insured. This is because motorcycle drivers without insurance tend to not have a lot of assets to spare, which can explain the reason why they are not insured. The lawyers at The Law Place recognize how annoying and unfair this may seem, but we will use our wealth of knowledge about the legal system to do all we can to ensure you receive the maximum possible payout.
If a case against a motorcycle without insurance goes to court, the likelihood is that the judge will not award you a considerably large settlement, and this is often because the defendant, the motorcycle driver, simply does not have the money to meet that. Nevertheless, an Attorney at The Law Place in Sarasota will do all they can to ensure that some sort of financial justice can be achieved. We will always strive to achieve the best for our clients, and you can be reassured that you will be in the most capable hands in Florida.
