Many motorcycle accidents are frightening and can cause very serious injuries, because you do not have the same protections as you driving a motor vehicle. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Safety Administration, motorcyclists are up to 25 times more likely to be involved in a deadly accident than the driver of a motor vehicle.
Motorcycle accidents can be caused by various factors, including negligence of another party, poor road conditions and the weather. The injuries sustained from these accidents are often serious and commonly involve a head injury, back injury or spinal injury. Depending on the severity of the accident, the injured party could face permanent disabilities, lost time from work, and significant medical expenses. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important to speak with a Missouri motorcycle accident attorney from our firm to ensure your rights are protected.
Ryan’s Rule #1: Get Immediate Medical Attention. It is important ensure that you get medical attention for yourself, and anyone else involved in the accident. It is always a good idea to get checked out by medical personnel even if you think you are not seriously injured. Your failure to seek treatment could hurt your case down the road.
Ryan’s Rule #2: File an Accident Report. If you have had a motorcycle accident, be sure to contact the police immediately and file an accident report. This provides important documentation, which could be useful later during negotiations or trial.
Ryan’s Rule #3: Exchange Information. Exchange contact information with all of the other motorists involved. You will want to provide your driver’s license number, vehicle registration, and your insurance information.
Ryan’s Rule #4: Take Pictures. If at all possible, take pictures of your motorcycle, any damage to the other vehicle involved, your injuries, and the surrounding area. Great pictures can go a long way in helping your Missouri motorcycle accident lawyer prepare your case.
Ryan’s Rule #5: Do Not Admit Fault. In these situations, the less you say the better. Be sure to not admit fault or any wrongdoing as this could hurt your case down the road.
