Enjoying Motor Sports

About six months ago, I realized that there were some serious problems with the way I was spending my down time away from work. It seemed like no matter what I did, I just couldn't relax and enjoy myself, which is why I decided to start investing more time into exploring different activities. I was able to find an incredible business that offered motor sports and accessories, and it was really incredible. I have had so much fun trying all different kinds of activities and I just know that other people would enjoy different motor sports and accessories too. Check out this blog to find out more.

Post-Accident: Who Pays For Your Motorcycle Repairs?

If you have recently been in an accident while riding your motorcycle, there is more than one way to make repairs to your bike. First (and most obvious), file a claim with your own insurance if you were in any way at fault. Then follow this chain of command for getting the rest of your repairs paid for.

The Other Drivers' Insurance

There is a reason for exchanging insurance information with the other driver or drivers involved in the accident. It is so you and your insurance company can pursue compensation for damages through the other insurance companies involved. If the other driver(s) do not want to share their insurance info, or they are not insured, then you go to the next step in this list. (You can also go to the next step in this list if your motorcycle repairs are not fully covered yet.)

The Other Drivers

When enough damage has been done to your motorcycle such that the mechanic has to special order parts just to put it back together, the accident becomes quite expensive. It then becomes a matter of pursuing the other drivers in small claims lawsuits with the hopes of getting enough money together to repair your bike and make it operational again. If you are also pursuing personal injury cases against the other drivers, it may be possible to include the remaining costs of repairing your motorcycle in the court documents. Just be sure to get adequate and precise repair quotes from your motorcycle mechanic.

Your City/State/County/Parish Government

If the condition of the roads are at fault along with the other drivers' inability to control their vehicles and drive safely, then you may be able to sue your local government for the costs of motorcycle repair. City, parish, state and/or county governments are responsible for road repairs and conditions. Motorcycles are usually able to maneuver through pot-holed roads rather well because motorcycle riders are on two wheels instead of four. (Still, you should not have been hit by other drivers while doing this.)

If, for some unusual reason, car drivers were attempting to move through the same stretch of road, they were not being as careful and the road conditions contributed to the accident, that is another avenue of compensation to pursue. Your local government may have to help pay for the repairs to your bike, if you can prove that the road conditions contributed to the accident.
