Motorcycle accidents can lead to serious, life-threatening injuries. As a motorcycle rider, you should always prioritize safety above all else. It’s important to be prepared. No-fault insurance coverage is not required motorcyclists, but it’s something that every rider should have.
In the state of Utah, motorcycles are treated a little bit differently than cars in insurance, no-fault or personal protection. That part of the insurance is not required for a motorcycle in the state of Utah, but it is available. Also, there’s a similar provision called MedPay that pays medical bills that’s available for a motorcycle. If you’re a motorcycle owner, you want to talk to your insurance agent and make sure that you have personal injury protection or medical pay on your policy. If you’ve been in crash and you don’t know if you have that type of coverage, you will want to check that out because it may or may not exist.
If you’ve been injured in a crash in the state of Utah on a motorcycle and you have serious injuries, it’s important that you select the right attorney. One of the things you want to look at is that the attorney you hire has experience handling motorcycle crashes. They’re different than other types of accidents, so you want to make sure that you have somebody who’s experienced with the rules of motorcycle riding, and has the experience in dealing with the adjusters for the insurance company on that type of a case.
One of the other things that I think is very important is that you hire somebody who’s a trial attorney, somebody who will be prepared and will take your case to trial if that’s what’s necessary to make sure that you get a fair resolution of your case.
