Injured in a Boise Motorcycle Crash?
Boise Motorcycle accidents or wherever your motorcycle accident happen can lead to a lot of trauma and stress due to the nature of the injuries involved. In Idaho, street-legal motorcycles are considered to be motor vehicles, just like a car. That means the owner and operator of a motorcycle must have insurance coverage. We recommend that Idaho motorcycle riders get, in addition to liability insurance, medical payments coverage, which will cover the cost of medical bills sustained in a motorcycle accident even if you are the one at fault.
Motorcycle Accidents and Insurance
Insurance for motorcycles in Idaho may be offered in a package that offers uninsured or underinsured motorist protection also. These types of coverage cost a little more but may be really beneficial if you’re involved in an accident. If you have questions about your motorcycle accident or insurance coverage, give us a call and we’ll help explain how it works.
Boise Motorcycle Safety
Please remember to ride safe. According to the National Highway Safety Administration, for every vehicle mile traveled, motorcyclists were about 37 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in an accident and 9 times more likely to be injured. With those kinds of odds, it is important to ride safely and avoid motorcycle accidents if at all possible.
While there is no law that requires motorcycle riders in Idaho to wear a helmet if they are over 18 years of age, it is certainly a wise decision to wear one and be as safe as you can. If you are driving a motorcycle, make sure you observe all traffic rules. It’s just common sense that other drivers may not notice you or see you as well when you are riding a motorcycle as if you were driving a car. So if you break traffic laws, you are more likely to be injured than someone driving or riding in a car or truck.
