Injuries that occur in motorcycle crashes are often severe. Brain injuries like concussions and traumatic brain injury are common. So are fractures and soft tissue injuries. Even minor motorcycle accidents can result in severe road rash and contusions.
A spinal cord injury is one of the most devastating injuries that can occur. It can lead to loss of sensation and even paralysis. Wearing a helmet can provide some protection to the head and neck, but largely motorcycle riders are fully exposed to the brunt of the crash.
Simply put, if you have crashed your bike, you need to talk to a motorcycle lawyer about your rights. Having a lawyer on your side can help you rest easier, focus on recovering from your injuries, and give you the strength needed to think about your riding future.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Some injuries are more common than others. Serious injuries, like traumatic brain injury, can sometimes result in fatalities or long-term disability. Broken bones are commonly diagnosed after a motorcycle accident. Although broken bones can be mended, treatment can mean weeks or even months of light duty at work. This can impact your income dramatically.
Even less severe injuries, like road rash, can require weeks to heal. Road rash, especially to sensitive areas of the body, can result in permanent scarring. Motorcycle crash victims are also likely to suffer from internal and soft tissue injuries.
We urge anyone injured in a motorcycle accident to seek medical attention as soon as possible after the crash. Medical care is expensive, and ongoing treatments and therapies only add to the cost. We will work diligently to get you compensation for your medical expenses as well as for your pain and suffering.
What to Do After a Wisconsin Motorcycle Crash
The moments after a motorcycle accident fly by. We urge anyone involved in a crash to call for police and emergency medical professionals immediately. Even if the person who struck you left the scene of the crash, it is important to have police document the accident. Never leave the scene of the crash without first speaking with the police.
As Wisconsin motorcycle accident attorneys, we have represented hundreds of injured bikers. A surprising number were not aware their injuries were significant until hours or even days after the crash occurred. Our bodies are excellent at protecting us from pain and suffering, and many times that initial adrenaline rush can numb the pain. It is important for all motorcycle riders to be professionally assessed for injuries after a crash.
Motorcycle accident victims should also collect the names and contact information from anyone that may have witnessed the crash. Often, these witnesses can be called upon at a later date to corroborate your story. This can be especially important when we work to determine the percent at fault in the crash. We always suggest that accident victims add the names and contact information of any witnesses directly to their cell phones. Papers can get lost in the shuffle and important information can be misplaced.
Be mindful when speaking with the insurance company after your motorcycle accident. Motorcycle crashes occur every day, and insurance issues are common. Often, the insurance agent you speak with will act as if they are your best friend. They will be caring, inquire about your health and wellbeing. But later, when it is time to make a settlement offer, you will find it is not even enough to cover your medical expenses.
Remember that the insurance company spends millions of dollars to train their agents to get you to accept and agree to as little compensation as possible. They win when they deny you fair and just compensation for your losses. Our motorcycle accident lawyers fight back against the insurance company. We want them to provide compensation that covers your losses, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
