I was Involved in an Accident When a Car Turned Left in Front of Me While I was Riding My Motorcycle in Florida. Who is at Fault?

If you were involved in a accident when a car turned left in front of you while you were riding your motorcycle, then you may be eligible for compensation in a personal injury claim. This is because a car making a left turn is almost always responsible for a collision with a vehicle coming in the other direction.

The only exception to this rule may be if you were going over the speed limit at the time of the motorcycle accident, or if you ran a red light. Even if you did act negligently, you may be found only partially responsible. And if partially responsible, you may still be eligible for damages in a personal injury claim.

This is because in Florida, the law of comparative negligence allows for a victim to collect damages even if they were partially responsible for an accident. Keep in mind that your total recovery may be reduced by your own percentage of negligence. In a Florida personal injury claim after a motorcycle accident, you may be compensated for your medical expenses, any pain or suffering, and any wages that you may have lost.
