Yes, a motorcycle passenger can make an insurance claim after an accident. There are three possible options. The injured motorcycle passenger can make an insurance claim against:
- The offending driver who hit the motorcycle
- The person operating the motorcycle
- The injured passengers own motorcycle insurance. If the passenger has motorcycle insurance, they can make an uninsured motorist claim against their own policy.
The best way to determine how to proceed after being injured as a passenger on a motorcycle is to contact a knowledgeable motorcycle accident attorney.
