- No matter who is at fault for the accident, your insurance company is responsible for covering initial medical expenses, as much as their policy permits.
- You are legally entitled for compensation to replace income lost from work, or to pay for a care taker if you or the victim is incapable of doing so due to injuries caused by the accident.
- If you are not at fault in the accident, you are entitled to a rental car if your vehicle requires repair or replacement.
- Commercial vehicles, such as semi-trucks, have a much larger obligation to be watchful and careful while driving on the road.
- In the event of an injury, you are entitled to pain and suffering compensation for present and long-term suffering. Depending on the state you live in, this amount may vary. However, Arizona is an exception – there is no limit on the amount of compensation you can receive for pain and suffering.
- If you are injured in a non-motor vehicle as a result of another person’s irresponsibility, you are still entitled to a settlement to compensate for your pain and suffering.

Similarly, if your car or motorcycle is damaged in an accident and requires repair or is deemed a total loss, as a victim you are entitled to a rental car or reimbursement by the other party’s insurance company. If the individual who caused the accident does not possess insurance, then criminal and civil charges can be brought against them to obtain compensation. Special vehicles such as semi-trucks and commercial vehicles are enlisted with greater responsibilities to be careful on the roadways. Because of their sheer size and driving techniques, Cantor Crane has found that they are frequently responsible for injuries and damages that they cause from improper driving.
If you are injured during the accident, the other individual will be liable for past, present and future pain and suffering that is directly related to the accident. This amount is frequently limited, depending on which state you live. However, in Arizona, there is no specific limitation on the amounts you can recover for pain and suffering. If you are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, regardless of whether another vehicle is involved, you are still entitled to money to compensate you for pain, suffering, and various potential losses.
Riding a motorcycle is seen as a passion for many and it provides practicality for a variety of reasons.
