Motorcycle accidents can often results in seriously severe permanent injury such as paraplegia, brain damage and permanent disability for victims involved. In other instances, even in less extreme collisions, people more often than not walk away with broken bones, head injuries, facial fractures and bad burns. Some injuries may also be underlying, such as concussion and so it is paramount that, after a motorcycle accident, you receive a medical examination to find out if there are any issues you aren’t aware of, and additionally, it makes claiming for an injury far easier with a medical report.
California law does now allow nor prohibit motorbikes from passing other vehicles in the same lane, commonly known as lane splitting. So long as a motorcycle is acting reasonably and responsibly, lane splitting is not prohibited under Californian law. If you are a motorcyclist and you are in an accident with another vehicle driver on the road, insurance companies may try and bully you out of a claim by claiming that lane splitting is illegal or nullifies any claim. Make sure you have strong legal representation to protect you from insurance companies trying to reduce the claim you are truly entitled to.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Distracted Driving (e.g. driver using a mobile phone)
What Should I Do Following A Motorcycle Accident?
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident the first step you need to take is calling the police, as the initial police report will be extremely important evidence relating to your motorcycle accident claim. If you are able to, make sure you get the other drivers contact details and the details of any witnesses. In addition, take as many pictures as possible of the accident, the vehicle damage and your injuries. If you are incapacitated or unable to take pictures, try and make sure somebody else can.
Following this, seeking immediate medical treatment is very important, not only to support your claim, but also to make sure any personal injury issues that arise as a result from the motorcycle accident. Keep all records of your medical appointments in order for your claim, and following all of your doctors advice is paramount, as any issues that arise from not following it may not be covered in your compensation.
When the other drivers auto insurer contacts you, remember not to speak to them about the incident or your situation without legal representation as this person’s job is to negotiate your compensation, and they will want to do this for the lowest amount possible.
