Frequently Asked Questions About Motorcycle Accidents

Q: I was hit by another vehicle while riding my motorcycle. What should I do?

A: First and most importantly, seek medical attention if you were injured in any way, even if you are not in pain because it is possible you many not feel pain until a day or two after the accident. If there were witnesses to the accident, get their names and contact information. In addition, take photographs of the accident scene, your injuries and any damage to your motorcycle or other property. Finally, contact an attorney who has experience with personal injury cases, specifically motorcycle accident cases, to discuss your legal options for recovery.

Q: What can I receive for my injuries?

A: Every case is different. The exact type and amount of compensation you might receive depend on your individual situation. As a general rule, you are entitled to recover for any of the following expenses: medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, future medical expenses, probable loss of wages in the future, property damage, loss of relationship with your spouse and other out-of-pocket expenses due to your injuries.

Motorcycle Accidents - An Overview

Riding motorcycles is a popular activity and motorcycle registrations are on the rise. Despite their popularity, the inherent nature of motorcycles makes riding them a potentially dangerous undertaking. Unlike cars and other vehicles, motorcycles offer drivers and passengers no protection. There is nothing between the rider and the open road other than the clothes the rider is wearing and possibly a helmet. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, call today to schedule a consultation with a personal injury attorney who can explain your legal options.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents, like all accidents involving motor vehicles, can be caused by a number of different factors. While an accident can be the fault of the motorcycle driver, many times, other drivers cause accidents involving motorcycles. Because of a motorcycle's relatively small size, many drivers of passenger cars and trucks do not see motorcyclists. Even if they check their mirrors before changing lanes or turning, the motorcycle may be in the car's blind spot, and an accident may result.

Motorcycle Defects and Recalls

A defect in a motorcycle or one of its parts can cause serious accidents. For example, a defective helmet might not provide the protection it is intended to, resulting in more serious head injuries. A defect in the brakes may not allow you to stop in time to avoid an accident. If you suspect that your motorcycle has a dangerous safety defect, you can report this defect to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a federal agency tasked with investigating alleged defects, issuing safety standards for vehicles and requiring manufacturers to recall vehicles that do not meet federal safety standards.
