How Insurance Claims for Motorcycle Accidents are Unique
The insurance claims process for motorcycle riders is similar to the process that is followed when individuals suffer damages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, or losses in a car accident. Riders have the right to seek a settlement for their damages. Unlike car accident claims, however, motorcycle accident claims are unique in many ways. In a motorcycle accident, the insurance company may look at many factors in the accident to determine fault. For example, the insurance adjuster may ask whether you were wearing a helmet. If you suffered a head injury and were not wearing a helmet, the insurance company may try to put the blame on the rider. However, there are situations where not wearing a helmet shouldn’t impact your claim. For example, if you suffered a broken bone or leg injuries and weren’t wearing a helmet, your choice to not wear a helmet in this case won’t have an impact on your claim.
Motorcycle riders also sometimes face bias from police officers and insurance adjusters. Police and adjusters may wrongly believe that riders are dare-devils or risk-takers. The reality is that motorcycle riders often take the time to get proper training on safe riding and are well-aware of their limitations and risks. When it comes to making an insurance claim, it can help to have a motorcycle accident law firm on your side, helping you navigate the claims process every step of the way. The Law Offices of Bruce S.
