What if I was forced off the road or hit by a hit and run driver?

In this situation, you may still be able to make an insurance claim if you have uninsured (UM) motorist coverage of your own which is an absolute must for motorcycle riders.

Insurance companies are famously reluctant to pay these claims, however, and may blame you for your own personal injuries – even though, believe it or not, they are your own insurance company!

Some policies may also have a “physical contact” requirement but there could be ways around that. If you have any trouble enforcing your legal rights, you should contact a motorcycle accident lawyer you trust as soon as possible in order to immediately investigate the crash, to take a witness statement, to review physical evidence, by taking pictures and/or video of the scene and your injuries and to otherwise aggressively protect your rights and interests as a motorcycle rider.
