Motorcycle Insurance Tips

We Protect Our Own

Before You Ride

The best way to protect yourself and your family is to make sure you are properly insured before you ride. Properly insuring your bike and cars before a wreck happens can save you time, money, and worry in the event of an accident.

South Carolina requires that all vehicles be insured with at least the minimum coverage required by law. Unfortunately, the minimum requirement for liability coverage is only $25,000. This means that if the driver that causes your wreck only has the minimum coverage of $25,000, the maximum amount that driver's insurance will have to pay is $25,000, regardless of how badly you are injured or how much your medical bills and lost wages total.

Types of Injury Insurance Coverage

  • Liability: Liability insurance pays the injured people in a wreck on behalf of the at-fault driver up to the amount of insurance the at-fault driver purchased. (Minimum of $25,000)
  • Uninsured: Uninsured insurance is also required by state law, in an amount equal to the amount of liability insurance. This pays in the event you are injured by an uninsured driver or an unknown driver that flees the scene.
  • Underinsured: Underinsured insurance is not required by state law, but it is the most important insurance a motorcyclist can have. It is strongly recommended that every rider carry this coverage on their motorcycle and every car in their household. Underinsured coverage pays in addition to the liability coverage of the driver that injures you if your damages exceed the liability limits of the at-fault driver. If the motorcycle involved in the wreck has underinsured coverage and the damages are large enough, the underinsured coverage from every vehicle in the household, including relatives living in the household, can be added together to greatly increase the amount of coverage available.
