I was rear-ended in a motorcycle accident. What should you do?
Rear-end collisions happen every day in the U.S. But when a motorcycle is involved, the chances of injury are much greater. A rear-end motorcycle accident can cause permanent injuries, serious head injuries, or even death to motorcycle riders. If you are a motorcyclist and you have been injured in a rear-end collision, you should speak with an attorney immediately. The longer you wait to get help on your case, the harder your case becomes to win. Memories fade and evidence can disappear. You may also miss certain legal filing deadlines.
Rear-End Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents are caused by a number of factors. For instance, the driver of the automobile is not paying attention, or may be driving dangerously. Some other common causes of motorcycle accidents include: texting or talking on the phone and driving, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, failing to follow traffic rules, following too closely and driving recklessly.
The best way a motorcyclist can avoid a rear-end collision is by paying attention while on the road. You should also be proactive in paying attention to other drivers. Motorcycles can be difficult for some other drivers to see. By being alert for a negligent driver, riders can avoid some accidents. Additionally, wearing helmets, protective gear, not drinking and driving, and not riding between lanes can help reduce the odds of a motorcycle accident.
However not all motorcyclists require the assistance of an attorney. If your accident involves only minor damage to your motorcycle and/or very minor injuries. It’s likely that you will be able to handle the case on your own. Keep in mind the insurance company wants to settle your case for as little as possible. Don’t settle for less than what your case is worth to make a quick settlement. Remember you can recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
