Motorcycle accidents are far more complex than car accidents. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, it is likely that your injuries are far more severe than if you had been in a similar accident but were driving a car instead.
Insurance policies surrounding motorcycle accidents are also more complicated. Although Delaware Law requires that each motorcycle have $15,000 of insurance coverage for medical bills and lost wages, motorcycle policies often have very high deductibles. Since injuries tend to be severe in motorcycle accidents, $15,000 is almost never enough to cover all of your medical bills.
When we handle a motorcycle accident case, we work with your motorcycle insurance carrier, your health insurance carrier, and your medical providers to get your bills paid. This can be a daunting process that you should not handle on your own.
In a typical auto accident case, if the party who is at fault does not have enough insurance, other insurance policies may allow you to receive benefits. In a motorcycle case, however, getting these benefits is much more difficult. Many car insurance policies specifically exclude motorcycles. We will make every effort to determine how much coverage is available to you and whether you can utilize other insurance policies to compensate you for your injuries.
