Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Fairfax, VA

There are two constants that run through just about every Virginia motorcycle accident case our office has handled.

  1. The adjuster almost always makes the argument that the motorcyclist did something wrong.
  2. There is almost never enough insurance coverage available to our client.


The Particulars of Motorcycle Insurance

You cannot control how much insurance the other drivers on the road have. But you can control how much uninsured motorist coverage you have. One of the things that we’ve found over the years is that motorcyclists typically do not have enough coverage.

The fact of the matter is that there is no such thing as a small motorcycle accident. When bikers are injured, they are often badly injured. In Virginia, the minimum level of liability coverage you are able to purchase is $30,000 per injury (or, if you pay the DMV $500/yr., you don’t actually have to purchase any liability insurance!). $30,000 does not go very far in a case where the motorcyclist suffers broken bones and has to go to the hospital for treatment.

How Much Motorcycle Insurance is Enough in Virginia?

Virginia personal injury attorney David Marks recommends that, as an absolute minimum, motorcyclists purchase $300,000 in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

Most people are surprised at how little it costs to increase your insurance coverage by 10x from $30,000 to $300,000. Hopefully, you’ll never find yourself in the position where you need $300,000 in coverage. But if you do, you’ll be glad you took our advice.
