Will my injuries and property damage be covered if my motorcycle was hit by a car while I was Lane Splitting in Utah?

If your motorcycle was hit by a car while you were lane splitting in Utah, the driver of the car may be liable for your injuries and property damage if they were negligent or violated a traffic law. However, because lane splitting is illegal in Utah, it may be difficult to prove that the driver of the car was fully responsible for the accident.

Under Utah’s modified comparative fault rule, if you were partially at fault for the accident, your damages may be reduced by your percentage of fault. This means that if you were found to be 20% at fault for the accident, your damages would be reduced by 20%.

Additionally, because lane splitting is illegal in Utah, you may face legal penalties or fines for engaging in this behavior.

It’s important to consult with a personal injury attorney if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident while lane splitting in Utah. An attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options, and can guide you through the legal process to seek compensation for your injuries and damages. They can also help you negotiate with insurance companies or pursue legal action if necessary.
