- Differences Between Motorcycle and Car Wrecks
- What are serious motorcycle accident injuries?
- Facing bias from the insurance companies and public
- What to Do after a Motorcycle Accident?
A motorcycle is much smaller than a car or a truck. Riders also don't have the protection of the car's steel frame. There are no seat belts or airbags on motorcycles. When a motorcycle is struck by a car or truck, the consequences often are grave for the rider or passenger on the motorcycle. The risk of sustaining a serious injury or dying in a motorcycle accident is higher than it is for passengers in cars and trucks.
Despite wearing helmets and durable clothing, a person injured in a motorcycle wreck can face extremely serious injuries that may require months or even years of rehabilitation and medical treatment.
The following are some common serious injuries:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones and fractures, including injuries to legs, arms and ribs
- Deep cuts
- Road rash (where the skin is severely damaged by the friction of sliding on the ground)
- Internal organ damage
- Injuries resulting in death
If you ride a motorcycle, you're probably familiar with the unfair image that many people have of bikers. They assume you're reckless and will take crazy chances on the road. If you're in an accident, it means you have an uphill battle to prove your case. You'll need an experienced attorney at your side - someone familiar with motorcycles and the culture, someone who understands the law and how insurance companies operate. Slocumb Law Firm will fight for you and help you get the justice you deserve. We know that evidence builds strong cases. That's why we work hard on behalf of our clients. It's what's required to get results. And we have a proven track record of successful results.
- Gather evidence. This means you should take photos or obtain any photos of the accident scene and get witness statements.
- Seek medical attention. Visit your own doctor or go to the emergency room after an accident and continue following up with appointments.
- Report the accident to your insurance company.
- Don't offer any statements to the insurance adjuster. The adjuster might try to reach you right after the accident to obtain a statement that could hurt your claim.
- Consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Let Mike Slocumb Law Firm know what happened to you. We want to hear from you and discuss your options.
