Protect Yourself From Cagers

philFrankelHow Do You Protect Yourself From Cagers?

What’s a cager? According to, a cager is “a popular word among motorcyclists and bicyclists used to describe for four wheeled motor vehicle drivers. The term is often used in a derogative sense, because the car body effectively forms a cage, isolating the said driver from having to interact with other road users.”

Simply, cagers don’t see motorcycles. Aside from motorcycle awareness campaigns and being on the lookout for cagers, the only other way you can protect yourself is financially with insurance coverage that insures you

Recently, we registered the website name where you can find out how to protect yourself.  We have been giving out Cager cards and recently gave them out at Full Throttle Magazine’s Bike Night.

We are constantly trying to get the word out to motorcyclists about inexpensive underinsured coverage and it’s starting to work.

We have attained four new motorcycle accident clients in the last four days. All of them were hit by drivers that never saw the motorcycle. One of those clients heard about underinsured coverage from a friend who was a previous client of ours and he purchased $300,000 underinsured coverage. The car which hit him, has $100,000 insurance coverage. Our client can now obtain another $200,000 from his own insurance company.

The second of the four clients, had $25,000 uninsured coverage with no underinsured coverage. He has injuries worth at least $500,000 and the car which hit him has only $100,000 coverage.

The third client has $25,000 uninsured coverage and was hit by an unknown car which fled the scene, so that’s all he can get even though his injury is worth a lot more.

The fourth client has a leg injury worth well over $1 million and no underinsured coverage, but he’s lucky that he got hit by a car owned by a large corporation which will be responsible for the entire value of his injury.
