How to Prove You Were Not at Fault in a Coventry RI Motorcycle Accident
One of the most difficult steps in a motorcycle accident case is establishing who was at fault. Insurance companies will often argue that their insured driver was not at fault in the accident because they were unable to see the motorcyclist. That is why it is so crucial to hire an experienced motorcycle lawyer to handle this important step. Some common causes of a motorcycle accident include:
- Drunk drivers
- Dangerous roads
- Distracted drivers
Even you caused the motorcycle accident in part, you may not barred from receiving compensation. If your lawyer can prove that another actor was at least partially at fault you will be able to recover for your injuries, though the total amount may be lower than if you were not at fault.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries in Coventry RI
Motorcycles are dangerous vehicles that offer significantly less protection than cars do. That’s why motorcycle accidents can sometimes result in more severe injuries than car accidents do. Some of these injuries include:
- Head injuries like concussions
- Broken bones
- Road rash
- Neck and back injuries, sometimes permanent in nature
- Facial injuries
- Emotional distress
- Scarring and disfigurement
It is possible that some of these injuries may be permanent. Some people suffer such significant injuries that they are unable to walk or work the same job that they worked before the accident. A motorcycle lawyer can help ensure you receive an adequate settlement to compensate you for your injuries.
What Insurance Coverage is Required in Rhode Island?
Rhode Island requires all drivers to have a minimum of $25,000 in bodily injury liability insurance. This means that if you are involved in a motorcycle accident in which another vehicle struck you, you are entitled to a minimum of $25,000 in liability coverage from the other driver’s insurance company.
There is often more compensation available in addition to the state mandated minimum. Our lawyers are skilled at finding the maximum amount of coverage to compensate you for your injuries. Many motorcyclists also have underinsured/uninsured coverage in their policy as well. This means that if you were injured by a driver who is underinsured or not insured at all, your own insurance will compensate you. Read more about underinsurance coverage here.
