Most states in America require riders to have a motorcycle insurance policy. Depending on the state a rider lives in and their policy, the cost of their premiums might be well above or below the average in the country. Motorcyclists have at least $25,000 in bodily injury protection per person, $50,000 per accident, and $10,000 in property damage coverage which would commonly be displayed with slashes – 25/50/10.
In Georgia, the minimum liability coverage is 25/50/25 or…
- At least $25,000 for bodily injury or death of one person when a motorcycle crash occurs
- A minimum of $50,000 for bodily injury or death of at least two people in an accident and
- At least $25,000 to cover damages for one's property as a result of an accident.
And while it’s not a requirement, Atlanta Personal Injury Law Group – Gore LLC recommends motorcyclists also look into getting accident death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance coverage in the event of a tragic accident. The loss of a family member can be a devastating time, AD&D is a unique type of insurance in the beneficiary of the policy will only receive benefits if the death was “accidental.” For example, death caused by a motorcycle accident, mechanical malfunction, or any other type of accident.
In Georgia, a rider must establish insurance in order to own or operate a motorcycle.

Motorcycle insurance is critical and may be your best source of financial security in the event of a serious crash-related injury.
