How Did Your Accident Happen?
When you meet with a motorcycle accident lawyer from our office, one of the questions we will ask you is, "How did your accident happen?" In order to determine fault, we must get to the root cause of the accident. Accordingly, our evaluation of your case will involve a thorough examination of the details of your collision.Oftentimes, we find that one or more of the following contributed to the motorcycle accident that left you injured:
- Defective vehicle products
- Road hazards such as potholes, uneven pavement, and oil slicks
- Poor visual recognition by other car and truck drivers on the road
- Wobbling caused by high-speed traveling
Once we have fully assessed your accident and determined the cause of your injuries, we can formulate a plan to move forward. Whether you file a claim or you take your case to court will be based on the details of your accident and / or the amount of compensation the insurance company is willing to invest in your recovery.
Common Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents
There are undeniably certain benefits to riding a motorcycle, such as their cost effectiveness, small form factor, and the thrill of the open road. Unfortunately, these same factors that make riding a motorcycle so much fun also make riders extremely vulnerable in the event of a collision. According to the Insurance Information Institute, motorcyclists are 27 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled. Those who are lucky enough to survive a motorcycle accident are often left with life-changing injuries.
Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding / organ damage
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Amputation / limb loss
- Dental injuries
What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident
Your actions immediately following a motorcycle accident can have a tremendous impact on both your health as well as any insurance claim or lawsuit you may have to file. While you may be in shock, it is important to remember these important and immediate things:
- If you are able to do so, get out of harm's way.
- Call 911 and summon medical help right away if you are seriously hurt.
- Call the police. They will help you get the accident scene under control and create a written report of the incident.
- Keep your helmet and gear on until paramedics arrive.
- Always seek medical help even if you feel okay. Serious injuries may not always be immediately identifiable due to the body's adrenaline response.
- Stay calm. Do not do anything that will put you or others at risk of injury or cause further property damage.
- Collect the contact and insurance information of all involved parties. Be sure to get the contact information of any witnesses to the crash as well.
- If you can, take photographs and/or videos of the accident scene as evidence.
- Never admit fault. While it may be second nature to apologize or say "I'm sorry," doing so can potentially expose you to liability before an investigation has even taken place.
- Tell your insurance company as soon as possible. Do not admit fault and stick to the facts.
- Contact an attorney and discuss your legal options.
