Who Pays For The Motorcycle After An Accident?

Attorney Mitchell Proner answers the question, “Who pays for the motorcycle after an accident?” If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident contact Mitchell Proner today.


>>Mitchell Proner: “When a motorcycle accident happens typically the injured rider has a lot of questions. They want to know who is going to pay for the bike? Who is going to pay for the medical bills? Who is going to pay for their loss earnings with regard to who is going to pay for the bike?”

>>Mitchell Proner: “Typically if the rider has his own collision coverage when he purchased motorcycle insurance that would be the first party that would pay for the damage to the bike. The rider might wonder why would I put the claim through my own carrier when I wasn’t at fault for the accident. Your carrier, the riders carrier will pay faster than the adverse vehicle’s policy then your carrier will get compensation from the adverse vehicles carrier, and they will divide up the claim depending on who’s fault”
