PIP Coverage and Motorcycle Accidents
Insurance companies are seen more often than not complicating the process of collecting damages in a motorcycle accident.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance is required on all auto insurance policies in the state of Massachusetts. This policy will cover some of the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and funeral expenses up to a certain amount for insurers, regardless of fault.
It is important for motorcyclists to look at a variety of forms of coverage and to always carry adequate health insurance. If there is a motorcycle accident, and the motorcyclist is at fault, they may be personally liable to cover the costs of the injuries for a passenger.
When the motorcyclist is not at fault, the injured person may be able to look to recover damages from the at-fault driver as well as his or her insurance company. In order to be successful in cases like these, it is important to show negligence on the part of the other driver. Meaning, one has to prove the other driver failed to use reasonable care as expected, in turn, resulting in the crash that causing the motorcyclist’s injuries or death.
