Question & Answer For Motorcycle Accidents

If you are a motorcycle rider, then you know there are risks when you hit the roadway. Regardless of how safely you operate your bike, you are vulnerable to the negligent or careless actions of other drivers. Today, we want to look at some of the common questions our Pittsburgh motorcycle accident attorneys are asked at Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman.

What should I do if I have been in a motorcycle accident?

During the latest reporting year in Pennsylvania, there over 3,000 motorcycle crashes that caused 180 fatalities and over 3,000 injuries. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, the first thing you need to do is seek medical treatment for any injuries you have sustained, no matter how minor they seem.

Please understand that many injuries do not begin to present signs and symptoms until hours or even days after a motorcycle crash. Any gap in treatment from the time of a crash to the time you receive treatment can be used against you by the insurance companies.

While at the scene of a crash, do everything you can to document what happened. This includes taking photographs and recording witness statements. Be sure to get copies of all police reports related to the crash.

What is the most common type of motorcycle accident injury?

Motorcyclists are vulnerable to serious injuries on the roadway. Even when a rider is wearing a helmet, they can still get seriously hurt. A typical passenger vehicle weighs around 4,000 pounds. When a motorcyclist is struck, they usually suffer from two impacts – one with the vehicle and one with the ground.

The most common injuries a motorcyclist suffer from in a crash include:

  • Head injuries
  • Road rash or lacerations
  • Muscle and ligament damage
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage or bleeding

Do I Need An Attorney After A Motorcycle Crash?

If the motorcycle crash that injured you or a loved one was caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person then you need to secure legal assistance. Very quickly after an accident happens, the insurance companies will begin calling. Do not make any statements to them until you speak with your attorney.
