Recovering for My InjuriesYou are permitted to receive compensation for your injuries. Determining the value of your case will depend entirely on the type of injuries sustained. However, with motorcycle accidents even small injuries can be serious. Insurance adjusters will often always evaluate property damage as a factor in determining liability. This is a commonly used trick by insurance adjusters to reduce the value of your claim. In most motorcycle cases the property damage element to the bike is very low. In fact there is almost always a discrepancy between the property damage and the bodily damage element of your claim. Motorcycles will often show very little property damage, even if the rider was seriously hurt. However, insurance companies will continuously point out that since property damage is low, then bodily injury claims are also low. What they fail to consider is that motorcycle riders absorb a bulk of any rear end accident. It is often the rider who absorbs a majority of the impact of a rear end accident. Often times these injuries are clearly manifested in medical examinations. Most injured parties suffer from chronic lower back pain, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, neck injuries and in certain cases brain injuries.
Other Drive Did Not Carry InsuranceIn certain instances a drivers responsible for the accident are not carrying insurance or has insufficient insurance. Most of the time you deal with one of the two situations. Because motorcycle accidents can be serious, it is almost always the case that the responsible party is not carrying sufficient insurance coverage. In other cases the responsible party can be lacking insurance coverage all together.

In order to do this you must have proper under-insured motorist coverage. California has specific laws pertaining to how under-insured coverage works and depends on policy limits for each party.
