There’s nothing like the freedom of the open road. Unfortunately, no matter how experienced and careful a motorcycle rider you are, you rely heavily on the awareness and respect of other drivers on the road. If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, count on the expert attorneys of Johnson Law.
With little protection in the case of a crash, a motorcycle accident victim is more likely to suffer major trauma or serious injuries resulting in lifelong physical, mental and financial consequences. Unfortunately they are also more likely to be blamed for the accident, even when it’s not their fault. With the increase in distracted driving, motorcycle riders are at risk now more than ever before.
When a collision is caused by the negligence of another driver, you have a right to pursue compensation from the at-fault driver for your injuries. This includes work loss and more. If you’ve been injured, call a motorcycle accident attorney in Michigan that is an expert in Michigan’s No-Fault insurance law and isn’t afraid to fight the insurance companies. Contact Johnson Law.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT
Seek Immediate Medical Care
Seek emergency or medical care immediately following the accident. A delay may affect your physical and emotional health and also be detrimental to your claim. Keep in mind that the severity of injuries is not always immediately known, and what may appear to be minor can eventually become more serious.
You must contact the police and have an accident report created to document the facts of the accident as soon as possible. Your police report should include all relevant information, including but not limited to, the names, phone numbers and insurance companies of all parties involved in the accident, as well as any statements from witnesses of the accident. Be sure to obtain a copy of all your medical records and document any days lost from work. It is also important to take pictures of the accident scene, the vehicles involved and of your injuries.
