motorcycle accident attorneyBeing in a motorcycle accident can be very scary, dangerous, and ultimately, sometimes fatal. The statistics are not kind when it comes to this type of accident, in part due to the fact that there is no outer shell of a vehicle to absorb the shock or prevent the rider from being thrown off the cycle.

If you or someone that you know has been in a motorcycle accident recently, you likely already know the seriousness of this type of incident. Injuries from this type of accident can be very bad, and riders are often lucky to walk away with injuries alone. Aside from seeking medical treatment, the next thing you should do is consult an experienced motorcycle accident attorney. Read on to find out more!

A motorcycle accident can cause some serious damage to the rider and the bike. If you’ve been involved in an accident or someone you know has, you know that it can take a lot of time to heal and recuperate from the incident. Not only that, but you’re looking a heavily damaged bike as well or damaged property as a result. The medical bills can be no joke, and you may need therapy or recuperative medical measures for weeks, months or even years afterwards. That’s not even addressing the mental and emotional trauma that may have occurred as a result of the accident.

If you have injuries or have spent time in the hospital for an injury, you may be eligible for compensation for what you have gone through. An experienced attorney can help you figure out what your options are and if you have enough to file a case. Hold on to every bill and bit of evidence that you have, including photos of the scene and photos of your injuries as well as any paperwork as a backup. Hold on to every photo of the accident scene, the vehicles involved, and injuries to your person. You’ll also want to hang on to the contact information of people who were involved at the scene, the person you were in an accident with and anyone who witnessed the incident, as they may be needed for later testimony.

Hopefully you field a report with the police so the accident is documented, which should always be the case especially if you are injured. Be sure to also hold onto any vehicles that you have that were damaged because they need to be examined and may serve as evidence for your case. Document any damage. Even if you have the chance to fix it up, do not. You can always get a new one or fix it when your trial is over.
