Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
When a motorcycle collides with a car or truck, the lack of protection for the rider against larger vehicles and the road can result in severe damages. Injured motorcyclists commonly require extensive medical procedures, care, treatment, and compensation. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, then you need an attorney from Penrod | Swenson to ensure that you get the financial recovery you deserve.
There is a plethora of motorcycle accidents. The most common type is when a car cuts off a motorcycle while changing lanes. This is called a lane change accident. Other common motorcycle accidents include rear-end collisions, head-on collisions, and side-swipe accidents.
Many times motorcyclists are blamed for the fault of the incident. The majority of serious accidents happen due to the negligence of the people around motorists. Texting and driving, speeding, failing to yield, tailgating, drunk driving, and unsafe lane changes are all common causes of motorcyclists being hit.
You may be wondering what to do next when involved in a motorcycle accident. You may be feeling overwhelmed and confused. Know that you are not alone. Many people are involved in motorcycle accidents each year.
The first step is to seek medical attention. Even if you feel like you are not injured, it is important to get checked out by a medical professional. Visiting a medical professional will ensure everything is documented and give your medical records to show the insurance company what they need to compensate. Get photos, videos, witness information, and insurance information. In cases like internal bleeding, it may not be immediately apparent. If you do not seek medical attention, you may risk your case or endanger your life. Once you have seen a doctor, the next step is to contact a motorcycle accident attorney. Our attorneys will be able to help you navigate the legal process and ensure that your rights are protected. We also help you recover damages for your injuries.
Several different types of injuries can occur in a motorcycle accident. Most common include road rash, broken bones, and head injuries. Some injuries may seem minor, but they can quickly become severe if not treated properly. That’s why it’s important to seek medical attention immediately after an accident.
Every motorcycle is different. Your settlement can vary depending on the crash’s severity and injuries. Suppose you are injured in an accident that was not your fault. In that case, typical compensation includes lost wages, loss of earning capacity, property damage, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and even wrongful death.
