In Florida, the open highways and year-round warm weather make motorcycles a desirable choice for travel. However, due to the fact that bikers are less protected than other motorists on the roadway, any accident that occurs -- even at a low speed--can cause catastrophic injuries.
The state of Florida does not require bikers over the age of 21 who carry at least $10,000 worth of medical coverage insurance to wear a helmet, but head injuries and brain damage can still happen in accidents, even when a helmet is worn.
Sadly, head injuries following a motorcycle crash are often severe. A head injury that results in permanent brain damage can keep you from leading a normal life and cause the medical bills to pile up. It may be difficult to know where to turn.We Can Help
