As a result of your motorcycle accident, you may have sustained medical expenses, lost income, a reduction in your earning capacity, rehabilitation expenses as well as pain and suffering.
Because of the exposed nature of motorcyclists and their passengers, the injuries are often very severe. Special laws apply to the insuring of motorcycles. You may not recover under some policies as you would for automobile injuries. Knowledge of the special problems for your case is necessary.
