Have You Been Hurt In A Motorcycle Accident?
First things first, if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident and have not yet done so, make sure you visit a doctor!
Some injuries are obvious as soon as they occur, but you may have incurred a more serious injury than you realize. A doctor needs to examine you.
A delay in medical care risks your well-being. A delay in documentation from a medical professional means the insurance adjuster can claim that you were not injured during the accident, but afterward. This kind of tactic is common from insurance companies who don’t want to pay you much, if any, of your injury claim.
Motorcycle Riders Are Vulnerable
New motorcycles riders often hear the same piece of advice. “Assume you are invisible and operate your motorcycle accordingly.”
Statistics show that in two-thirds of car-motorcycle accidents, the driver of the larger vehicle is the one responsible. Car drivers aren’t in the habit of noticing, or specifically looking for, a vehicle that’s smaller than the average car. Consequently, nearly 70% of accidents involving motorcycles occur at intersections where a car turns in front of or rear-ends a motorcycle.
The difference in size, obviously, makes a collision between a car and a motorcycle especially dangerous for you, the bike rider. An accident frequently results in catastrophic, and sometimes fatal, injuries for the motorcyclist. Burns, broken bones, spinal fractures that lead to paralysis, traumatic brain injury and amputations are some of the most common injuries bikers suffer.
