Can Motorcycle Riders File A Claim to Auto Insurance After Single-Vehicle Crash?
Yes, they can. Motorcycle riders who live in California must have auto insurance, but what the coverage can include will differ. Commonly, however, most motorcycle auto insurance will cover any injury caused during a crash, be it single-vehicle or multi-vehicle. They also generally include provisions that allow victims to claim damages. What they don’t usually offer, by default, is any claim related to any physical damages done to your motorcycle. Because of this, it is best to check your insurance policy to ensure which applies to your case.
