Motorcycles fall under a unique area of insurance and personal injury coverage in the state of New York. Riders are required to wear helmets at all times, and if a rider is injured in an accident while not wearing a helmet, your case can become more complex. Additionally, unlike other motor vehicle coverage policies, motorcycle insurance is not required to include no-fault medical coverage. Special coverage is available for motorcyclists, and if you have questions about your policy, we can review your paperwork to advise you of your rights.
Protect Your Settlement
When your case is successful and you have managed to secure damages after your motor vehicle accident, it is important that you continue to stay in touch with your attorney. Oftentimes after a settlement has been reached, insurance companies that have previously paid for your medical bills will try to seek reimbursements from your settlement check. These reimbursements are known as subrogation liens.
If you have been contacted about owing your insurance company money for your no-fault insurance coverage, also known as personal injury protection (PIP), or any other payments made on your behalf, get in touch with us immediately. We will continue to represent your interests and help you to maintain your right to your claim and avoid subrogation by insurance companies and the Social Security Administration.
