Minor Accidents Have a Major Impact
Even Minor Accidents Can Have a Major Impact on Motorcycle Riders
Minor automobile accidents are always frustrating, and can sometimes lead to minor injuries depending on the circumstances. However, when a motorcycle is involved in one of those ‘minor’ accidents, the injury damage can be much more severe. Without the protection that comes with a passenger vehicle – doors, seatbelts, etc. – motorcycle riders are at a much greater risk of injury. If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle accident and would like to consider your legal options, contact a motorcycle accident lawyerright away.
Fault Needs to Be Determined
One of the key steps in any auto accident investigation is to determine who was at fault. As there tends to be a bias against motorcycle riders in these kinds of investigations, you need to stand up for yourself and make sure all of the facts are considered. Or, you can hire a motorcycle accident lawyer to do that work for you. If the driver of the other vehicle was at fault for the crash, it is that individual and his or her insurance company who should be held responsible.
Get Care and Seek Compensation
If you are hurt as a motorcycle rider in an automobile accident, you need to care for yourself first and foremost. Be sure to get the medical attention you need to minimize the long-term effects of your injuries. Once your medical situation is under control, don’t let too much time pass before you seek out a motorcycle accident lawyer to work on this case. Since it can get harder to form a winning case as more and more time passes since the accident, you don’t want to wait too long to get started. Whether you wind up with a viable case or not, talking to a lawyer right away will only help your cause.
