Detroit Personal Injury Lawyers Fighting For The Injured

What Should I Do After I’m Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?

On a motorcycle, riders do not have the protection of an enclosed vehicle, and can suffer from severe injuries as a result if they are involved in a collision: Burns, bone fractures, internal injuries, cuts and bruises, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are just some examples of the harm that can occur in a motorcycle accident.

To treat these injuries, motorcyclists must pay for expensive medical bills, and can lose significant wages during their recovery period. In fatal cases, the victim’s family is responsible for medical bills in addition to funeral costs and other expenses. Securing the funds to pay for these expenses will require immediate action to build a case.

Get Immediate Medical Attention — And Keep Records of Your Injury Progression

Recovery is the most important post-accident step, and should be addressed as soon as possible. Even if you feel fine after a collision, you should still visit a doctor to check for any internal injuries, or anything else you may not have noticed right away.

As you undergo treatment for your injuries, keep all medical records to maintain proof of the care you received, and the cost of that care. If your injuries are external, take pictures of your healing progression.

Take Pictures of the Accident Scene

Photographic evidence exhibits the hazardous conditions that were present during a collision, the damage that was done to the vehicles, the emergency responders that arrived after the accident, and more. All of these elements can help establish your case.

Collect Contact Information

After a motorcycle accident, speak with the other drivers to get their insurance information. You will also need to get the names of the first responders who arrived at your accident scene, and the contact information of any other witnesses.
