We'll Help You Understand Your Coverage
In Pennsylvania, motorcycle riders are required to have insurance. However, the insurance you carry on your motorcycle greatly differs from your car insurance in a number of ways:
- No First Party Benefits – In a car accident, your car insurance will pay your medical bills until an agreed amount is met. After that, your health insurance will kick in. However, in a motorcycle accident, your motorcycle insurance isn't responsible for your medical bills. That lies solely in the hands of your health insurance.
- You Can Seek Repayment – As opposed to limited tort car accident, you are able to hold the at-fault person responsible for your medical bills and insurance costs after your motorcycle accident.
- Subrogation – Here's the danger: if you are awarded a settlement from your motorcycle accident, your health insurance company will try to take it all from you. This is called Subrogation of Benefits. They will seek total repayment for your medical bills.
We're here to prevent your health insurance company from profiting off your injuries. They will seek to recover all their expenses, even if you've faithfully paid your monthly premiums, and this could leave you owing money to the health insurance company after your settlement. On top of worrying about your injury, you'd have to pay more money to the health insurance company. They're supposed to take care of you. We don't think that's right.
We won't let your health insurance companies push you around. We'll stand up to them and make sure they don't get more money than they deserve – if any at all.
