Most states within the US require everyone owning a motorcycle to have motorcycle insurance. But what exactly is it good for? A lack of understanding about exactly what your policy covers can lead you to unnecessary hassle later on, plus confusion about whether or not the coverage you have is what’s right for you.
Here are the three main things that are generally covered:
Accidents and Other Damage
Should your bike be damaged in an accident, a natural disaster, or even theft, your full coverage insurance policy will more than likely cover the cost of repairs minus your deductible. These types of policies are typically required by law and can be worth their weight in gold should your motorcycle receive serious damage.
Injuries to You or Your Passenger
Optional in some states and required in others, policies that cover the cost of medical bills for you or your passenger are invaluable. Should you be involved in an accident, regardless of who is at fault, these policies will cover the associated medical bills up to a certain limit, similar to health insurance.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorists
It’s no secret that not every driver on the road is a responsible one. If another driver hits and injures you or your bike but does not have the proper insurance, it’s possible that your policy will pick up where theirs left off. This means you will never be stuck holding the bag for an accident that was not your fault.
