Injured Motorcycle Passenger Claims

Were you injured in a North Carolina motorcycle accident while riding as a passenger on the bike?

If so, the lawyers at Hendren Redwine & Malone may be able to help you.  An injured motorcycle passenger may have a variety of rights that are different than the motorcycle driver.

In some instances, the motorcycle operator may have been negligent in the operation of the motorcycle.  If so, the injured passenger may have a claim against the operator and his/her insurance company.  The injured passenger may be able to recover from his/her own insurance company under something called underinsured motorist coverage.

Some insurance policies provide for medical payments coverage.  However, our experience lately indicates that many insurance companies are excluding motorcycle accidents from coverage for medical payments.

Many passengers injured in North Carolina motorcycle accidents are seriously injured and require long-term hospitalization and treatment.  In many cases, the medical bills can be very high and can involve complicated health insurance issues.

If you have been involved in a North Carolina motorcycle accident as a passenger and have questions about your legal rights, call the lawyers at Hendren Redwine & Malone to discuss a possible claim.
