I am Joseph Diaco, Jr. from Diaco Law. I have over 20 years of experience as a lawyer in Florida. As a Floridian and an attorney, I have watched the number of registered motorcycles on our Florida roadways swell to more than 550,000 in recent years. It is an unfortunate fact that the number of Florida accidents involving a motorcycle has risen in tandem with the number of riders.
Florida is distinct in that it does not typically require a motorcycle owner to maintain personal injury protection (PIP). This can prove problematic because the year round weather in the Tampa Bay are makes it a favorite place to ride a motorcycle. Too often, local TV news broadcasts feature a story involving an inattentive motor vehicle operator who failed to yield right of way on the road. Expected injuries include:
- Neck injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Upper trunk injuries
- Lower trunk injuries.
An accident involving a motorcycle will often result in permanent disability and a need for expensive lifelong medical treatment. I am here to act as an advocate for injured Florida motorcycle riders, to ensure that you are able to pursue compensation for the following damages:
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Accrued and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death.
