Is insurance coverage an important issue in Louisiana motorcycle accident claims?
The state of Louisiana requires only Personal Injury Protection at $10,000 per person, $20,000 per accident and $10,000 in Property Liability as standard car and motorcycle insurance coverage. These amounts, plus any additional insurance coverage you choose to have, are usually the sole source of money when it comes to compensating you for your Louisiana motorcycle accident.
What happens when someone doesn’t have insurance coverage?
If you are in a Louisiana motorcycle accident without insurance, you may face difficulty in filing a Louisiana personal injury lawsuit to recover damages for your injuries. The courts will acknowledge you neglected to follow the legal requirements for insurance coverage and may not be willing to award compensation because of your neglect.
If the other drivers do not carry insurance, or do not have the minimum required insurance coverage, you also may face the danger of being unable to obtain a sufficient settlement in your Louisiana personal injury lawsuit. In these cases, the help of an experienced New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney may be your only hope.
