What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident?

When compared to cars and trucks, motorcycles are less stable and much less visible than other motor vehicles. When a motorcycle accident does occur, the rider's rate of injury, or death per accident, is astronomical when compared to that of a driver or passenger in a car or truck. Safety should always be a first priority. If you are injured, you should call 911 immediately. After ensuring your safety and health, here are some guidelines that you should follow: 

  • Seek Medical Attention. Again, your health is your priority. If you have severe injuries, you must immediately call for medical assistance. Even if you believe you are not injured, it is still crucial to seek medical attention. Adrenaline can prevent a person from feeling pain, and injuries may show up after the adrenaline wears off.  
  • Take Pictures of the Scene and Your Motorcycle. It is essential that you take pictures of the scene, the motorcycle, and your injuries (if visible). Also, try to obtain photos of the other vehicles involved and their license plate information, the driver’s license, or insurance information, if available. Taking pictures immediately after the accident can help support your claim against the other driver.
  • Gather Any Witness Information. If witnesses are on the scene, you should obtain their names and contact information. This contact information may become vital to resolving your personal injury claim. Make sure you take pictures of their driver’s license and license plates. 
  • Acquire a police report. Calling the police after an accident is always a good idea. A police officer can help ensure everyone is safe and receives medical attention.
  • Call Keller & Keller. In such a difficult time, the last thing you must worry about is fighting with the insurance company. Calling legal professionals with experience can make a BIG difference in your case. Your focus should be your health and recovery; let our motorcycle accident attorney team take care of the rest.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

The most common injuries our clients have sustained as a result of a motorcycle accident include:Motorcycle Accident

  • Road rash. There's a reason that many bikers choose to wear leather - and it isn't to look cool. Leather and other thick protective materials can help protect bikers against road rash - painful skin abrasions caused when a motorcycle rider skids along the pavement after a crash. While it only sounds like an annoyance, road rash can be painful and permanently disfiguring. Road rash has a tendency to become infected, and some may require skin grafts and surgery.
  • Broken bones. When a motorcycle collides with an object, the bike often stops, while the rider keeps going. In many cases, the biker's worst injury occurs at the point where he or she first makes contact with the ground after a crash. The result is that many riders need medical care for broken arms, broken legs, broken wrists, and broken ankles. Because of the force associated with these accidents, these bone fractures could require surgery and could have lifelong consequences.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI). If a motorcyclist strikes his or her head during a motorcycle accident, they could suffer from a concussion, a minor brain injury, or a fatal blow to the head. It is the leading cause of fatal motorcycle injuries. While a motorcycle helmet will minimize damage and save lives, it is important to understand that helmets will not completely protect you from a head injury during a wreck.
  • Wrongful death. Many motorcycle wrongful death claims can be resolved prior to filing a lawsuit. However, if and when it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit, the personal representative will file the wrongful death estate on behalf of the estate.
