How do insurance companies determine the value of my injuries in a motorcycle accident case?
When you’re injured as a result of a motorcycle accident, the laws are slightly different because you don’t have PIP that are paying your bills. Your PIP insurance covers a vehicle accident, but not motorcycles. So, the evaluation process is slightly different.
However, I will tell you many times insurance companies undervalue motorcycle accident injuries and they believe that a jury will find that the motorcycle was at fault. If you look at statistics, 70% of the time motorcyclists are injured by other drivers and the other drivers were at fault.
So it’s really important that you hire an attorney who’s experienced with motorcycle cases to make sure that that evaluation is proper and it appropriately covers all of your damages.
