A: In Pennsylvania, motorcycle riders who get into accidents are generally ineligible to make claims for medical bills under their motorcycle or car insurance policies. Section 1711 of the Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law specifically exempts such coverage for off road vehicles and motorcycles.
In motorcycle accident cases, the injured rider can make a claim under his or her own private health insurance. If there is no private health insurance, Medicaid might be available to cover the medical expenses, depending on the circumstances. It is best to speak to a qualified Pennsylvania motorcycle accident lawyer who can assess the facts and guide you on how to make a claim.
