Will Motorcycle Insurance Cover My Passengers?

As a motorcycle rider, you may wish to take family, friends or loved ones out for a ride sitting behind you, if your bike allows for it. But one of the questions that we at Colling Insurance Services Inc. serving the greater Lakewood, CO are often asked is whether motorcycle insurance will cover passengers if they are injured while going out for a ride. Read on to find out the answer. 

Will Motorcycle Insurance Cover Passengers?

Motorcycle insurance will cover any passengers that are riding on a motorcycle with you. If the accident is caused by someone else, their insurance will pay the medical expenses before your insurance kicks in, if you surpass the limits of their policy. If you were at fault for the accident, your insurance will pay. 

Why Having the Right Coverage Limits is Important?

Having the right coverage limits is important whether you are riding alone or with a passenger. Having the right coverage limits helps to ensure that your insurance will cover all of the medical expenses in the event of an accident. Having the right coverages helps to ensure that you are covered if an uninsured or under-insured driver hits you, or helps to ensure your coverages are high enough if you are at fault for the accident and you and your passenger sustain many injuries. 

Having the right motorcycle insurance coverage is extremely important.
