San Bernardino motorcycle lawyer & attorney – Liability Insurance in California is MANDATORY!
Ask a San Bernardino motorcycle accident lawyer about motorcycle insurance – California law states that all motorcyclists must have motorcycle insurance. That is the minimum for liability coverage – meaning if you cause the accident that is the pool of funds an injured driver can recover against you. The minimum coverage required in California is $15,000 for the injury or death of one person and $30,000 for the entire accident. You must also have a minimum of $5,000 in coverage for damaged property.
If you do not have insurance, in California you will be barred from recovering for your pain and suffering by a law passed by the voters of California called Prop 213. Also, in most cases, unless you have massive injuries, it will be very difficult to find a personal injury lawyer to help you with your case because frankly there will be no recovery for your pain and suffering. You can only recover for your economic damages which might include your lost wages and/or medical bills.
While having the minimum liability limits is required by law, it’s critical to your health that you purchase additional insurance. Most motorcyclists don’t have enough of their own insurance – specifically uninsured motorist (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. These types of insurance protect you if you get hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver.
The most popular insurance providers in California include: Progressive, Geico, State Farm, USAA and Allstate Insurance.
