Why Was My Motorcycle Insurance Claim Denied?
A common problem in personal injury claims is insurance companies' refusal to pay for the damages involved. We personally advocate for you when you are wrongfully denied payment, demanding that insurance companies hold up to your contract. As we navigate your claim, we keep you informed along the way so that you always understand where we are in the process.
Insurance companies deny motorcycle accident claims due to:
- Lack of evidence, witnesses, photographs, or adequate documentation of the scene
- Unreasonable restrictions in your policy
- Insurance unwilling to cover the upgrades you made on your vehicle
- Simply not wanting pay for the damages financially
Claims are denied for many more reasons. The good news is that our experienced personal injury attorney in Fargo know how to identify these issues and quickly take the appropriate next step when claims are denied.
North Dakota Motorcycle Laws
Understanding the law in each state you ride in is a crucial part of ensuring you are protected both before, and following an accident. Our North Dakota motorcycle accident lawyer is an expert in motorcycle accident law.
North Dakota's Motorcycle Helmet Law
According to North Dakota Century Code 39.10.2-06, all motorcycle riders under the age of 18 must wear a helmet that meets the requirements of the U.S. Department of Transportation. If the driver is under the age of 18, their passengers must also wear a helmet, even if they are over the age of 18.
Riders over the age of 18 are not required by law to wear a helmet, however, it's important to remember that wearing a helmet (particularly when riding a motorcycle) can greatly reduce your risk of sustaining serious injuries in an accident.
