How Motorcycle Accidents Happen
Motorcycle accidents can be caused by recklessness or negligence on the part of a driver, defective roadway designs, poor road maintenance, inclement weather, and product defects, among other reasons. Due to the fact that motorcyclists do not have a protective steel barrier surrounding them, as other motorists do, they are left with relatively little protection. As a result, motorcyclists are far more susceptible to traumatic, catastrophic, and fatal injuries. Should a reckless or negligent driver cause an accident, our team of motorcycle accident attorneys can work to hold them responsible and help you collect compensation.
What To Do after a Motorcycle Accident
In the immediate aftermath of a motorcycle accident, you should first remove yourself from harm’s way, if you are able. Next, call 911 and report the accident to local authorities. Do not leave the scene of the accident before you have spoken with the authorities and received medical attention. It is important to remember that not all injuries are immediately obvious.
We will review all evidence to determine the true cause of your accident and hold the negligent party responsible for your injuries.
In addition to exchanging information with the other party, take photographs of the scene and ask for witness accounts, as these may be valuable to your case. Next, reach out to our office to arrange to meet with an attorney. Meanwhile, you should not speak to anyone representing other parties involved in the accident, such as insurance representatives.
Recovering Compensation for Damages
Motorcyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as anyone else on the road. Unfortunately, a bias exists against them. Fortunately, Vigil & Alford understands that motorcycle accidents are often the result of negligence on the part of those driving cars and trucks. As your attorneys, we can:
- Investigate all evidence at the scene of the accident
- Interview witnesses
- Document road and weather conditions
- Answer any questions you may have
We will review all of these factors and other evidence to determine the true cause of your accident and hold the negligent party responsible for your injuries.
