Riders Have Rights—We’re Here to Help You Exercise Them
There is hardly any place better to be a motorcycle rider than the Gulf Coast. With beautiful weather all year long, riders from all over the nation travel to Fort Walton Beach to see its pristine beaches and tourist attractions. But no matter how great the weather is, accidents can happen.
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, you likely have the right to sue the at-fault party for damages. That’s where we come in: Our trial lawyers at Michles & Booth know motorcycle accident law like the backs of our hands. And Marcus Michles, our firm’s senior partner, is an avid motorcycle enthusiast himself. In the past 30 years, he has guided countless motorcycle accident victims down the path to their rightful compensation.

Recovering Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident Injury
You may have already heard that Florida’s no-fault insurance laws do not apply to accidents involving motorcycles. This does not mean that riders cannot recover compensation for their injuries, however; it only means that how you approach a motorcycle case will differ greatly from how you would approach a car accident case.
At Michles & Booth, we have extensive experience with motorcycle accident litigation. We are often able to recover our clients compensation for the damages they suffered due to either their own injuries or the fatal injury of a loved one:
- Emergency medical treatment
- Ongoing treatment/rehabilitative care
- Short- or long-term disability
- Reduced future earning capacity
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of companionship, support, etc.
Hire a Team You Can Count On
Regardless of how terribly injured a motorcyclist is in an accident, they are often wrongfully blamed for causing that accident. For example, our legal team was proud to take on a case involving the tragic death of local attorney and motorcycle enthusiast Terry Boutwell.
Although the accident report named Mr. Boutwell as the at-fault party, we launched an in-depth investigation into the matter. Using the knowledge we have gained over the years (such as how witnesses tend to overestimate the speed of a motorcycle due to sound and RPM), we were able to litigate and win the case for Mr. Boutwell’s surviving son. This case is just one example of many.
If you have been severely injured or bereft of a loved one, we will fight to make sure you aren’t made a victim twice. We have recovered millions for our clients through our personalized legal counsel and aggressive advocacy. Find out what it’s like to have an award-winning attorney team on your side!
