Motorcycle Accidents

Due to their size and design, motorcycles are more dangerous than a car, leaving their drivers exposed to the inherent risks that come with this vehicle.
Even so, motorcycles are a mean of transportation that is gaining more and more popularity thanks to their speed between trips.

Considering that both rider and passenger of a motorcycle travel at varying speeds and without body protection, a motorcycle accident is more likely to have a fatal outcome.

What to do in case of a motorcycle accident?

  • Seek medical attention
    Motorcycle Accidents rarely leave the people involved unharmed due to the little protection that the vehicle provides, and although most of the injuries are to the legs, there may be many other internal damages that do not show pain due to the adrenaline rush that the accident generates. This is why it is always necessary that a health specialist makes a detailed assessment of the injuries.
  • Request a report from the authorities
    Even if a doctor determines on the spot that there are no serious injuries caused by the accident, you should call the police or traffic authorities to make a detailed report of what happened, causes of the accident, involved parties, witnesses, and any other piece of information that may be useful to determine liability and start legal procedures.
  • Get a lawyer
    An attorney who specializes in motorcycle accidents will be able to offer consultation in every aspect you need, from the relationship with the insurance company to the claim of medical attention needed after the accident and, if you wish to, the filing of a lawsuit that will give you economical compensation.
