Sebring Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Fighting on Behalf of Injured Victims & Their Loved Ones
Motorcycle accidents tend to result in some of the most severe traffic-related injuries. Because motorcyclists are relatively unprotected—compared to other motorists, who have seatbelts, airbags, and steel frames to protect them in the event of a crash—motorcycle riders are often the ones who suffer severe, catastrophic injuries.
At Dismuke Law, we understand just how challenging it is to get back on your feet after a motorcycle accident. You are likely facing serious injuries and an extensive recovery, which can quickly become very costly. If your injuries prevent you from working, you are likely concerned with how you will be able to pay for this medical care, not to mention your daily life expenses. Our Sebring motorcycle accident lawyers have a proven track record of success in fighting on behalf of motor vehicle accident victims and their families. We can help you seek justice and fair compensation from the at-fault person or party, all while offering the compassionate, personalized counsel and advocacy you deserve.

Filing an Insurance Claim After a Motorcycle Accident
Immediately after a motorcycle accident, it is important that you seek medical attention for your injuries. Even if you believe you were not injured or that your injuries are minor, it’s a good idea to see a doctor who can rule out any underlying or unnoticed injuries that could be concerning. If you have suffered injuries, make sure to obtain proper treatment and follow all of your doctor’s instructions.
Once you have ensured that you are being properly treated for your injuries, your next step is determining how you will pay for those medical bills. In Florida, motorcyclists cannot purchase personal injury protection (PIP) insurance; this coverage is mandatory for the owners of cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks but not motorcycles. That being said, all motorcyclist should have minimum liability insurance, as well as medical coverage in order to protect themselves in the event of a crash.
If you do have medical coverage on your own policy, you can file a claim through your own insurance provider after a motorcycle crash. However, if you do not have this optional coverage, you will need to file a claim with the at-fault person’s insurance provider. Our firm can help you understand your own policy, as well as what your next steps should be after an accident.
When Negligence Leads to Motorcycle Accidents
All too often, motorcyclists who are being careful and driving responsibly are hit by negligent or reckless drivers. These drivers may try to claim that they couldn’t see the motorcyclist—but this is never an excuse for causing an accident.
A motorcycle accident may be the result of negligence if it was caused by:
- A distracted driver
- A drunk driver
- A fatigued driver
- An inexperienced driver
- Someone who was speeding
- Someone who violated traffic laws/rules of the road
- A driver who ran a red light/stop sign
- Someone who turned across the path of an oncoming motorcyclist
- A person who opened a car door into a motorcyclist’s path
- Dangerous road design/construction
- A defective vehicle or vehicle part
If you believe any of these or other factors played a role in your accident, turn to the Sebring motorcycle accident lawyers at our firm to learn how we can help you seek fair compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disability, motorcycle damage, and other losses.
