Motorcycle Accident FAQs


I was in a motorcycle accident, but I don’t have a motorcycle license. Can I still recover compensation?

The laws regarding motorcycle licenses vary from state to state. Some states require that you have a special motorcycle license in order to operate a motorcycle, while other states say that a driver’s license is sufficient. You may be able to recover compensation from a motorcycle accident if you didn’t have a motorcycle license depending on the state in which the motorcycle accident occurred.

The best way to determine if you will be able to recover compensation for your motorcycle accident is to contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney.

What should I say to the other party involved in the accident or their insurance adjuster?

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, it is a good idea to not say anything too specific about the accident. Many times, in the moments following an accident, people say things that may not necessarily be true. A potentially incorrect admission of guilt can severely impact your motorcycle accident claim.

Whenever you are making a statement to the other parties involved in your motorcycle accident, it is a good idea to have a witness, preferably a lawyer, present.

Is any lawyer going to help me with my motorcycle accident?

There are many different personal injury lawyers that are more than willing to represent your motorcycle accident claim. However, if you want to have the best representation possible, it is a good idea to hire an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. Motorcycle accidents are much different than car accidents, and an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer will be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

I wasn’t wearing a helmet during my motorcycle accident and my state has helmet laws. Can I still recover compensation?

If your state has helmet laws and you were involved in a motorcycle accident, you may still be able to recover compensation. Recovering compensation from a motorcycle accident can involve comparative negligence and contributory negligence.

If your state has contributory negligence, then you may not recover compensation if you are liable for any part of the motorcycle accident. If you state has comparative negligence laws, then you may be able to recover compensation for the losses the other driver is liable for.
