Revvin' up for a joy ride on your new motorcycle? Make sure you have the proper insurance on your bike before heading out on the open road with a policy from C & A Insurance LLC.
Connecticut motorcycle insurance
Connecticut state laws dictate that motorcycles follow the same legal guidelines as automobiles when it comes to insurance. This means all motorcycle owners must be insured with state minimum limits of liability and uninsured motorist coverage. What does this mean?
- Liability insurance covers injuries & property damage you may have caused because of an accident, including damages to other vehicles or nearby buildings and structures.
- Uninsured motorist insurance covers motorcycle owners in case of an accident with bodily injury and/or property damage where another driver is at fault but doesn't have insurance. This also applies if the motorist doesn't have enough coverage to pay for all the damages in the accident—this is why it's important to consider purchasing coverage that's more than the state minimum requirements. Uninsured motorist coverage also provides protection in case of a hit-and-run accident.
In addition to making sure your bike is properly and legally insured, practicing motorcycle safety is also important. It's the first line of defense so that your motorcycle is ready for your next joy ride. In Connecticut, it's against the law to ride without proper eye protection (unless your bike has a windshield). Also, if you are under 17 or only have your motorcycle permit, wearing a helmet is required.
