If someone’s carelessness caused your injury while you were riding a moped in Florida, we want to do everything possible to help get your money for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, mental anguish and any other damages to which you may be entitled.
1. Medical Bills
If someone’s negligence caused your injury while you were on a moped in Florida, the classification of your moped as either a bicycle or a self propelled vehicle under Florida law will determine who is responsible for paying your medical bills.
If your moped is considered a bicycle, then we will make a claim with the proper PIP insurer if one exists. A moped is more likely to be considered a bicycle it if can be propelled by human power.
If your moped is a considered a self-propelled vehicle, then we will make a claim to get your medical bills paid against the responsible parties.
