Recovering your losses after a motorcycle accident
You know every time you set out on your motorcycle that an accident could be devastating, even life-threatening. Your risk of injury on a motorcycle is much higher than if you were surrounded by walls and a roof as in a car. Unfortunately, because so many drivers fail to see, ignore or are even aggressive toward motorcyclists, your risk for an accident is also higher. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2007, motorcyclists were about 37 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash and 9 times more likely to be injured.
Unfortunately large medical bills go hand in hand with serious injuries. In New Jersey, most motorcycle policies do not cover medical bills. In addition, many auto insurance policies, which usually cover medical bills from an accident under the "No Fault" provisions, typically exclude motorcycles, so that you likely won’t be covered under your automobile insurance policy in the event of a motorcycle accident.
