Motorcycle Insurance Coverages
There are a number of common motorcycle insurance coverages that can help you get a highly protective motorcycle insurance policy.
- Bodily injury liability - Along with property damage liability, this coverage makes up the most commonly required type of motorcycle insurance. This coverage will help pay for injuries suffered by others in a crash you cause.
- Property damage liability - If you cause damage to other people's property, this coverage will help pay for repairs of those damages.
- Comprehensive - This type of motorcycle insurance coverage will help with damages to your bike that are not the result of an accident, such as vandalism.
- Collision - This coverage will help pay for repairs if your bike is damaged in an accident.
- Medical payments - If you are hurt in a crash, this coverage can help with your medical costs.
- Personal injury protection (PIP) - Like medical payments, this coverage will help with medical costs. It is generally required in "no-fault" states. However, note that motorcycles tend to be an exception to no-fault laws.
- Uninsured motorist - Even though most states require vehicle insurance, there are still plenty of uninsured drivers on the road. This coverage can help pay your costs if you are in an accident caused by an uninsured motorist.
- Underinsured motorist - This coverage will help when another driver's liability insurance is insufficient to cover your costs.
- Motorcycle roadside assistance - Also known as towing and labor coverage, this can be highly valuable when your bike breaks down on the road.
- Accessory coverage - This coverage can cover custom parts and equipment you add to your bike.
