Frequently Asked Questions
It may be difficult for injured riders to recover compensation following a crash, especially if they are pursuing their claim without the assistance of an attorney. Because Personal Injury Insurance Protection (PIP) in some states is only required for vehicles with four or more wheels, motorcyclists are not permitted to carry PIP coverage.
Even if the motorcyclist owns a car that is covered by PIP insurance, the coverage does not extend to accidents that occur on the motorcycle. If the motorcyclist is uninsured, they may struggle to pay for costly medical bills, especially if the injury prevents them from working.
If you were injured in a motorcycle crash, an attorney can explain your options for pursuing compensation for medical bills and other losses — which could be further compounded by circumstances such as medical malpractice. If you contact an attorney immediately after the accident, they can begin to collect information and evidence to support your claim for compensation.
To help build your claim, your attorney may collect scene and police reports, gather witness statements, obtain photographs of the scene, investigate the other motorist’s driving history, reconstruct the accident scene, recreate the accident, review medical records, consult with experts, and contact insurance companies on your behalf.
