Naples Personal Injury Attorney

Naples Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Filing Injury Claims After an Accident in Naples, Florida

Riding a motorcycle can be very fun, as well as a cost-effective form of transportation. Unfortunately, one downside to riding a motorcycle is that it offers very limited protection in the event of a crash. Even in a relatively safe place, like Naples, drivers can be distracted or negligent and cause motorcycle accidents. According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles’ crash report, more than 9,000 motorcycles crashes occur every year in Florida, resulting in about 7,850 injuries and 530 fatalities.

If you or someone you care about has been hurt while riding your motorcycle, a Naples motorcycle accident attorney can represent you. Contact The Kuhl Law Firm today.

Common Motorcyclist Injuries in Naples

Motorcyclists are at a significantly higher risk of being injured in a traffic accident than other motorists because of the lack of protection motorcycles offer their riders.

With many years of experience as a Naples motorcycle accident attorney, Attorney Ryan Kuhl is here to help you fight to recover damages to cover your expenses after a serious accident.

He has helped clients recover compensation for all types of injuries, including:

Florida Motorcycle Laws

In Florida, there is a range of laws that pertain to the operation of a motorcycle throughout the state. These laws cover stipulations regarding using the road, motorcycle equipment requirements, helmet usage, mandatory insurance minimums, and more.

Some of the most important motorcycle laws to be aware of include:

  • Motorcycle Endorsement – To legally drive a motorcycle in Florida, you are required to have a motorcycle endorsement on your driver’s license. This identifies that you have received the required specialized motorcycle training.
  • Insurance Requirements – In Florida, all motorcyclists are required to carry liability insurance. The insurance minimums include at least $30,000 for a single-incident liability limit, $20,000 in total bodily injury coverage, and $10,000 to cover property damage and bodily injury for each person.
  • Daytime Headlights – Motorcyclists must use headlights during the daytime. Failure to do so could be used as evidence of the motorcyclists’ negligence in an accident claim if the lack of using a headlight is determined to be a factor in the crash.
  • Helmet Requirements – Anyone under the age of 21 must wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle in Florida. Those who are over 21 years of age are only permitted to not wear a helmet if they carry $10,000 or more in medical coverage. Failure to wear a helmet could impact your ability to recover compensation for motorcycle accident injuries.
  • Rules of the Road – Motorcyclists are expected to adhere to the same rules of the road that all other drivers are required to follow. This means they are required to obey all traffic signals and are not permitted to weave in and out of traffic. Additionally, it should be noted that motorcyclists also enjoy the same rights as all drivers. This includes the right to full use of one lane, though two motorcyclists can share a single lane if they wish.
