Motorcycles have been part of the American landscape for a hundred years. With an ever-increasing multitude of enthusiasts and motorcycle clubs across the country, motorcycles are more popular than ever.
Unfortunately, motorcyclists are in constant danger from automobiles, busses, and trucks. In one year over 7% of American traffic fatalities involved motorcycle crashes, while motorcycles made up only 2% of the vehicles on the road. Motorcycle fatalities have increased by over 50% in a recent five-year period. In one year over 3,180 people were killed in motorcycle-related accidents. Motorcycle accident injuries can be severe, and the rider may sufferer any of the following:
Spinal cord injuries
Internal organ injuries
Sadly, an estimated 80 percent of motorcycle accidents result in death or serious physical injury to the rider, compared to only 20% of car crash victims.
After An Accident
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident there are a few things you need to know. The moments following an accident are crucial for your case. You must immediately start to think to gather relevant information helpful to you and your case.
Obtain the contact information from the other driver involved in the accident, including name, driver’s license number, address, insurance information, and any other important information.
Get names, phone numbers and all contact information of all witnesses.
If you suffered any injuries you should seek medical attention immediately.
If possible, take notes about the accident, including the location, weather conditions, time, and anything else that is significant.
Take photos of the location where the accident occurred, your motorcycle, and, if possible, the other vehicle(s) involved.
Immediately contact the police and your insurance company.
