As a Pennsylvania Motorcycle Accident Lawyer, I’ve represented many seriously injured victims of motorcycle crashes. Sometimes, no matter how careful motorcycle riders are, motorcycle accients happen. When they do, they often result in serious, if not catastrophic, fractures, injuries and even death.
Motorcycle crashes cause disasterous consequences to the crash victims and their families including astronomical medical bills, lost wages and disabling injuries.
On way to prevent financial disaster after a Pennsylvania motorcycle accident is to make proper insurance choices BEFORE an accident occurs.
Most importantly, all motorcycle riders should carry Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage of at least $100,000. In fact, you should consider having much more. Uninsured and Underinsured coverage will provide compensation after an injury caused by another driver with either has no insurance or not enough insurance to cover all damages caused by the crash. In Pennsylvania, it’s a sad fact that many drivers have no insurance and many others have only the minimum liabliltiy coverage of $15,000. If such a driver causes a motorcylcle accident, there will be insufficient coverage to compensate the injured motorcycle accident victim.
However, if the motorcycle rider purchased Uninsured/Underinsured coverage, it will provide additional compensation to make up for any injuries. So, to protect themselves and their families from disaster, motorcyle riders need to purchase high Uninsured and Underinsured Coverage Limits.
