Motorcycle Insurance

In the state of South Carolina, all motorcycle riders are required to have full coverage. Just like car insurance, they must show proof of insurance coverage if requested by law enforcement to comply.

South Carolina is also an at-fault state, which means that whoever is at fault for an accident is liable for personal and property damage of their passengers and any other people involved. The coverage requirements for motorcyclists are the same as vehicle owners, but often the minimum requirements are not enough to fully protect yourself if you or your motorcycle are in an accident.

Other Types of Riders you Might Want to Consider

In the state of South Carolina, you must have the minimum insurance requirements to operate a motorcycle, but often those minimum requirements are not enough to cover all of your medical expenses and property losses. Other additional coverages you might want to consider are:

  • Collision Insurance will protect your bike if you are involved in an accident, including any repairs or property loss to your motorcycle
  • Underinsured and Uninsured Motorist coverage is an addition that will help cover you if you are in an accident and your damages exceed those allowable through your regular auto insurance coverage. It also protects you if you are in an accident with someone who does not have insurance and is at fault
  • Comprehensive coverage will protect your motorcycle against any damage that is caused by things like vandalism, theft, water, wind, or fire
  • Bodily Injury coverage will protect you if you are in an accident and at fault if someone is injured and killed. It also protects any passengers who are involved
  • Medical Payment coverage will cover things like dental care, medication payments, deductibles, and medical payments that are not covered through your regular policy, like funeral expenses and home nursing care, which are often factors due to the increased risk of harm in a motorcycle accident
