Daytona Beach Bike Week

Bike Week in Daytona Beach comes around every year. I am in the business of helping motorcycle victims who are injured through no fault of their own. As great as it is that Florida passed the law that doesn’t require us to wear a helmet, it breaks my heart every year to have people come to me who have a head injury that could have been avoided. Please drive very carefully, realizing that people, including those that send text message while driving, do not see motorcycles. The roads here in Central Florida are becoming more and more dangerous as younger drivers are distracted by cell phones, and so many other factors that make them not look twice before pulling out.

Before you get here, check with your insurance agent and make sure you have stacked Uninsured Motorist coverage on your vehicles, if you do not have it specifically on your motorcycle. If your Uninsured Motorist coverage is stacked or stackable on your cars, it frequently can be used on your motorcycle, even if you elected to reject Uninsured Motorist coverage on your motorcycle. More often than not, when someone causes you to be hurt, they do not have enough Bodily Injury liability coverage to properly compensate you for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. They frequently only have $10,000.00 of coverage for your property damage and your motorcycle may be worth far more than that.

Uninsured Motorist coverage pays you for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages in the event the car that hit you did not have proper coverage.

If you get run off the road by another motorist, your Uninsured Motorist coverage will compensate you in this situation which we call a “phantom vehicle.”

Please call me anytime, day or night, and there is never a charge. I am really happy to give you free advice. Be safe and have a great time.
