Being involved in a motorcycle accident can be a traumatic event. Due to the vulnerability of motorcyclists, those involved in a motorcycle accident are at a much greater risk of suffering severe or fatal injuries. For those who have sustained severe injuries or have lost a loved one, our personal injury attorneys are here to help the victims and their families in making sure their legal rights are protected.
There are a number of different factors that lead to motorcycle accidents, one of the most frequently heard reasons being that the other driver never saw the motorcycle in the first place. Some of the more common injuries sustained in these accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Road rash/burns
- Head trauma
- Broken ribs
- Leg fractures
- Broken collar bones
These injuries can be catastrophic to the victim and their families. In addition to the life-long problems that may be experienced after an accident like this, there is also the burden of medical expenses and lost wages.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident
When it comes to any kind of accident, whether it be car, truck, or motorcycle, the priority should always be your well being and seeking immediate medical attention if you are injured. Once you are clear of injury, the following steps should be taken:
- Call the police
- Make sure no one else has sustained injuries
- Gather contact information and insurance information from the other driver
- Take pictures of any and all damage and injuries incurred
- Seek medical attention if you haven't already
- Call your insurance company and file a report
- Contact an experienced attorney
Make it a point to keep copies of all records having to do with the accident, such as the police report and medical records in case you decide to pursue a legal course of action.
