Are passengers on motorcycles covered by insurance?

As the weather gets warmer, it's common to see motorcyclists zipping along the shores of Lake Michigan and other scenic roads in the Chicago area. Many motorcyclists carry passengers on the back of their bikes. If you have a passenger riding with you, it's important that both parties have a clear understanding of your insurance coverage in case of an accident.

The Federal Employers Liability Act and railroad workers

Over a century ago, in 1908, Congress passed a law called the Federal Employers Liability Act. It was enacted to help railroad employees take legal action for injuries resulting from their work. While railroad work has gotten safer over the years, FELA still helps these employees and their families seek compensation and hold responsible parties accountable for on-the-job injuries. This applies even for railroad employees who don't work on or around trains.
