Do I have a claim if I was injured while riding as a passenger on a motorcycle?
If you’re a passenger on a motorcycle that’s involved in an accident, under Idaho law, do you have a claim? The answer is, yes, you do. You have several. You have the right to sue whoever it is at fault, make a claim against whoever it is at fault. If at fault driver was not the person who was driving your motorcycle, you have the absolute right to pursue a claim against that individual, particularly if they have their insurance available. You have a perfect right to make a claim against them. You also have the right to make a claim against the person who is driving the motorcycle. Usually people riding motorcycles together are very close. If you’re reading this, you might have been seriously injured because that often happens in motorcycle accidents.It probably sounds a little awkward to be in a position where you’re making claim against the driver of your motorcycle if they’re friends or family of yours but you have a perfect legal right to do it. It’s the reason that insurance exists. If that driver also has uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, you have a right to make claim under those benefits as well because their insurance of your driver applies to you as a passenger as well.
There are multiple avenues of claims that you can pursue if you’re a passenger on a motorcycle under Idaho law, all of which are perfectly valid.
