Injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents are much different that injuries from most automobile accidents. A biker doesn’t have the benefit of solid steel surrounding them, and so usually end up hitting the ground at a high rate of speed. This type of impact is severe, and in many cases can be fatal. If you are in a motorcycle accident, you must take steps towards reaching a fair settlement for the injuries you sustain, which includes taking whatever legal action is available to you.
If you are fortunate enough to “walk away” after a motorcycle accident, the following things will help you to move your case along more efficiently:
● Clear the roadway and immediately call 911.
● Provide information about the incident to the officer on the scene.
● Get the names and contact information of all witnesses.
● Exchange insurance information with the other driver or drivers.
If you are currently not a bike owner, but are considering getting a motorcycle, these tips are beneficial to you to. Consumer reports also suggests taking a driver safety course prior to hitting the road. The more you know, the safer you will be. And, because most motorcycle accidents are the result of an automobile driver not seeing a bike, it is a good idea to take steps to ensure your presence on the road is known. There are many after-market products you can buy to enhance the sound made by your cycle, and you can also make sure to wear reflective clothing when driving at night.
