PIP and motorcyclists
Motorcycle accidents are often more serious than other motor vehicle accidents, simply due to the nature of the vehicle. Motorcycles offer much less protection to a driver than a car or truck does, as there is nothing to shield the impact of an accident. Motorcycle riders, however, are not offered the same medical coverage provided to those with auto insurance. Typically, if you are in an automobile crash, you have what’s called personal injury protection coverage. PIP is coverage that will help you with medical expenses and lost wages. However, motorcyclists in New York State are not afforded PIP insurance and will be required to cover their expenses out of pocket.
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident in Westchester County, you will have to establish that your injuries are serious and that the motorist was negligent in their operation of the vehicle, which ultimately resulted in the accident. If you can prove that your injuries were caused by the negligence of another person, you may be able to recover damages that can cover medical bills, lost wages, and more. There are two categories of damages that may be recovered in an injury case, economic and noneconomic. Economic damages may include medical expenses, lost wages, and more. Noneconomic damages may include emotional distress, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. It is essential to retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who can effectively fight on your behalf and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
