What Motorcycle Insurance Do I Need?
Before an accident even happens, there are steps you can take to make sure you are protected. Most importantly, make sure that you have motorcycle insurance coverage, and make sure you fully comprehend what that coverage entails.
Many people believe that they have a full coverage policy, only to find that they did not have full coverage when they are attempting to make a claim. By definition, a full coverage policy only needs to have some form of coverage in each category, but does not specify how much coverage is in each category. This means you could have almost no coverage in medical, but be fully covered in liability.
When you purchase insurance, it is extremely important to figure out exactly what your insurance policy actually covers. This way, if you ever do find yourself in a position where you need to file a claim, you know what damages you can be compensated for, and there are no unpleasant surprises.
Speak to a Decatur Motorcycle Accident Attorney First
You are required to report any accident to your insurance company within 24 to 48 hours of the incident, depending on the details of your policy. When you do, remember that they are not on your side. They will look for any reason to lessen or outright deny your claim.
To avoid damaging your claim, speak to an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer first. Your lawyer can provide guidance and advice at no cost regarding what to say to your insurer. In some cases, your attorney can handle the entire process on your behalf.
Hiring a skilled attorney will simply help you protect your right to fair compensation. Call us at (866) 592-1296 or contact us online for a free, no-obligation consultation with a Decatur motorcycle accident lawyer today.
