Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
While these vary and are specific case to case, most of the harm done to motorcyclists on the road stems from what psychologists call "scotoma." In these cases, it refers to a driver's inability to see motorcyclists, simply because they are not used to looking out for them.

Helping Motorcycle Victims Get Back on Their Feet
One of the big issues regarding motorcycle accidents is the lack of insurance coverage from both parties. While Florida law requires motorists to own Personal Injury Protection (PIP), Florida law does not provide PIP coverage for motorcycles, even if the other motorist has PIP coverage.
This means that an injured motorcyclist may not have many options for collecting compensation. If you own a motorcycle, call your insurance agent to learn more about uninsured motorist coverage (UM) and medical payments coverage (Med-Pay) for your motorcycle. These coverage options are important, and without them, you may be left with little or nothing after an accident.
