How can a motorcycle passenger make an injury claim after an accident?
If you’ve been injured while riding as a passenger on a motorcycle, you should speak to an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer about your options.
Depending on the unique circumstances of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. One or more drivers involved in the crash may be at fault, and possibly others. Chest pain after a motorcycle accident could have serious implications. Always get your symptoms checked out by a doctor to protect your health and personal injury claim.

Getting insurance companies to take your claim seriously
Even if another person (or multiple people) were responsible for the motorcycle crash and your injuries, it doesn’t mean their insurance companies will pay a fair settlement without a fight.
