Canadians involved in a Florida motorcycle crash will often be able to access insurance benefits through their own Canadian motorcycle insurance, even for motorcycle accidents that occurred in Florida.

If you are an Ontario resident, and were injured in a motorcycle accident in Florida, there is a chance that the at-fault party may be uninsured or underinsured. The other driver's insurance limits may not be sufficient to pay for your injuries claim. Florida has lower minimum insurance requirements for drivers than Ontario. As such, you may be able to advance a claim in Ontario, Canada for the uninsured and underinsured benefits that form part of your Ontario motorcycle insurance policy.
