What Are My Rights if I Was Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?

If you have suffered a serious injury in a motorcycle accident, you may be facing overwhelming medical bills, physical therapy, lost income, and other financial difficulties – all on top of the physical pain and emotional stress that comes with a major injury. All it takes is one bad judgment call from a reckless driver to turn your life upside down.

As a motorcyclist, you have the same rights as everyone else on the road when you are injured by a negligent driver, including:

  • A medical examination by a doctor who specializes in motorcycle accident injuries
  • Compensation for medical bills
  • Compensation for property damage
  • Damages for pain and suffering
  • Reimbursement of lost income

The full amount of compensation you deserve will depend on the specific circumstances of your accident, and the seriousness of your injury.

Unfortunately, there is a cultural bias against motorcycle riders – people generally assume that they were the ones driving recklessly, even though crash data from many different sources shows that motorcyclists are most often the victims of these accidents. When it comes to getting a fair settlement from an insurance company, you may be fighting an uphill battle.
