Focused On Getting Motorcycle Accident Victims Their Deserved Compensation
Generally, motorcycle crashes are much more serious than car crashes. In fact, motorcycle riders are about 25 times more likely to die in wrecks than vehicle occupants. Due to the serious nature of these injuries, substantial compensation is usually available to motorcycle crash victims. However, Florida insurance companies almost always try to shift blame for these incidents onto the victims.
To overcome these obstacles and get the compensation you deserve, you need an experienced team of legal professionals on your side. The experienced motor vehicle accident lawyers at Piccin & Glynn have over 60 years of combined experience in cases just like these. We use proven methods to collect the needed evidence that will form the foundation of a successful claim. Then, we use this evidence to paint a compelling picture for the jury.

How Insurance Companies Attempt To Minimize Compensation
To reduce the amount of compensation the victim receives, many Florida insurance companies assert the comparative negligence defense. This means that sometimes there is fault on both sides or by a vehicle driver and motorcycle driver and the parties, and sometimes a jury, must decide what percentage of fault to assign to each side. You cannot recover for damages that you caused yourself. That is why assigning fault is an important and sometimes tricky task.
The motorcycle helmet defense is rather common as well. Florida only has a limited helmet law. So, if the victim was not wearing protective headgear, the insurance company may assign some blame or fault to the victim for any head or other injuries.
