Can I file a claim if I was run off the road by another driver?
You may be wanting to ask an attorney, “Could I have a claim if I’m on a motorcycle and I get forced off the road by another vehicle?” The answer to that question is yes, indeed, you may have a claim. This is a scenario in which we call the phantom vehicle, where the vehicle that causes an accident leaves the scene. Even if there’s not contact between vehicle and motorcycle, you still may have a claim.
The question is going to be determined based on whether or not you have available uninsured motorist coverage that would apply to you, either on that motorcycle or by other vehicles that you own, or other relatives that you reside with that have uninsured motorist coverage. Uninsured motorist coverage in Florida covers the hit and run or phantom vehicle scenario. Let us look at your policy and we’ll make that determination.
