Do you have a motorcycle accident injury claim?
Though not necessarily more common than other types of accidents, motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in serious injury or death. Motorcycle fatalities occurred 27 times more often than deaths from other vehicle accidents in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
No matter how careful you are when riding a motorcycle, you cannot control the actions of other motorists. More than forty percent of all accidents involving a motorcycle and a car occur when the automobile driver is making a left-hand turn and strikes a motorcycle that is trying to pass the car or driving straight through the intersection. While these types of accidents also commonly occur between two automobiles, the relatively small size of the motorcycle makes it less visible to the turning vehicle.
What to do after a motorcycle accident
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, or even future medical treatment.
If you’re involved in a motorcycle accident, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately, even if your injuries seem minor. Head injuries, leg injuries, road rash, and muscle damage are common following motorcycle accidents. Failing to receive proper medical treatment following a motorcycle accident can lead to permanent damage such as nerve damage or even disability.
