Pennsylvania Motorcycle Insurance Coverage

Between selecting the right coverage and keeping it affordable, getting the right insurance policy can be difficult. We know it seems tempting to go with the cheapest policy you find.

Required PA Motorcycle Coverage

In Pennsylvania, motorcyclists are required to carry at lease two forms of insurance on their policies:

  • Bodily Injury Protection – This will cover injuries or death sustained in the accident.
  • Property Damage Protection – This covers damages to another person's property as the result of an accident.

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage

One of the most important decisions you can make when choosing your motorcycle insurance is opting for Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) coverage. Most insurance companies won't explain the benefits of this choice, but it could save you thousands in the long run.

Many drivers in Pennsylvania don't have adequate insurance policies to cover the cost of an accident. In fact, many drivers choose to have the state required minimum for their policies. Without Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist coverage, you may be the one left holding the bill after your motorcycle accident – even if it wasn't your fault.

UM/UIM protects you and your loved ones against motorists who either drive without insurance or don't have adequate coverage on their policy. We recommended you select this for your policy. Saving a few dollars on your monthly premium may sound great, but it's nothing compared to the thousands you'll save when your medical bills, bike repairs, and rehab costs are covered after an accident.
