Injured Motorcycle Passengers
When a motorcyclist and passenger are involved in an accident with another vehicle, the passenger on the motorcycle is a victim regardless of which driver was at-fault for the accident; this also includes single-vehicle accidents for which the motorcycle’s operator was responsible. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident due to another’s negligence, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance companies on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
A 2005 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that out of over 2,000 motorcycle-fatalities, about 44% resulted from single-vehicle accidents, and many of these victims were passengers. In accidents in which the driver of another vehicle was at-fault, the motorcycle-passenger may file an injury claim against that driver, and the same is true if the motorcycle’s operator was at-fault.
Naturally, there are some reasons why injured passengers may refrain from filing a claim against the operator, as they often have some sort of relationship with him/her and may also be concerned about resulting costs. But it’s important to remember that they payment to the injured passenger is usually made by the insurance company and not the motorcyclist. The insurance company may pay up to the motorcyclist’s policy limit, but the motorcyclists themselves do not pay for the damages.
