Orlando Motorcycle Accident Lawyer- Can a motorcyclist sue if he/she isn’t physically contacted by a vehicle?
Motorcycle riding can be dangerous, especially when other motorists aren’t paying attention. A no-contact motorcycle accident occurs when a cyclist has to maneuver out of the way quickly. Commonly, the motorcyclist will lose control due to this maneuvering and a crash may occur.
In the state of Florida, a motorcyclist can sue if another driver‘s actions caused his/her injuries. However, a suit will only find ground if the cyclist can prove the other driver acted negligently.
Drivers are required to maintain adequate situational awareness. No-contact accidents usually occur when the driver is not paying attention to road conditions, and this may be grounds for a negligence claim- regardless of physical contact.
