You can replace a damaged motorcycle, but not an injured body

Often, it is best for a beginning motorcyclist to learn how to ride on a used or older motorcycle. The reason for this is that it is very easy for new riders to drop a motorcycle when attempting to come to a halt. There's no point in dinging up a new machine if you can just as easily let an older vehicle take the knocks.

Once a rider develops a strong enough skill set, he or she can then buy a new motorcycle to replace the banged up beginner's bike. It's too bad that we can't do something similar with our own bodies. It would be great if we had bodies that we could injure while we learned how to ride and then replace once we knew what we were doing.

Unfortunately, things don't work that way, and every injury we suffer must be treated and allowed to heal. Sadly, some injuries are so severe that they may leave permanent damage. Such injuries could even force us to alter the way we live our lives.

Any tumble from a motorcycle is liable to cause some measure of injury. In a best-case scenario, after an accident or fall, you'll be able to pick both yourself and your motorcycle up and continue on your way. However, in more dire circumstances, the motorcycle may stay on the ground while you are transported to the hospital via an ambulance.

In such cases, you will likely need compensation to cover the costs of treating your injuries. If you have insurance, you should receive the funds you are owed. However, sometimes insurance companies try to find loopholes or other reasons not to pay claims.

At Towe, Ball, Mackey, Sommerfeld & Turner, PLLP, we are familiar with how insurance policies work as well as the practices of insurance companies. If you believe you are not receiving appropriate compensation for your injuries, we may be able to help. On this website, you will find a description of the services we can provide to injured motorcyclists.
