How are car accidents involving motorcycles different from other types of auto accidents?

Motorcycle accidents are different from accidents involving other vehicles in that motorcyclists have very little protection from other vehicles and fixed objects, and when they collide, they are susceptible to a wide range of injuries that can impact them permanently. Some of the most common injuries we see stemming from motorcycle crashes include the following:

  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Road rash
  • Sprains
  • Concussions or other traumatic brain injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Nerve damage
  • Lacerations
  • Scarring or disfigurement

What should an injured biker do after a motorcycle accident?

If you were injured as a biker in an accident involving a car or other type of motor vehicle, you should do what you can to document exactly how the accident happened. Doing so can increase your chances of recovering compensation in the future (as long as you can prove the other party is responsible for your injuries. Some useful forms of evidence can include:

  • Pictures of the accident
  • Pictures of your injuries
  • Witness testimony
  • The police report filed at the scene
  • Medical documents
  • Medical bills
