Fast Facts: Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

Helmets do help

Helmets do help to prevent head injuries and fatal brain injuries in motorcycle accidents.
Just because you were wearing a helmet does not mean that you avoided having a motorcycle accident head or brain injury, and even if you had a brain injury while riding without a helmet that does not automatically mean that wearing a helmet may have made a difference.

The Facts need to be Understood!

The facts and evidence, medical records, speed, road surface and many factors need to be understood and appreciated by a qualified motorcycle accident injury lawyer.

In a head and brain injury motorcycle accident case, a brain injury trial lawyer who has litigated these cases may be a good choice.

I am, frankly, both.

Jury selection is important

Jury selection is very important in motorcycle accident lawsuits.
What do the jurors think about motorcycles? Are they upset to share the road?
Do they feel that motorcyclists are “asking for it” by riding on I-95 or choosing to ride a motorcycle?
Have they ever owned or operated a bike?
Jurors need to be constantly reminded that your rights are equal, and identical to motorists’ rights.

Leave your bike where it is

In case you are reading this just for general information and not for an accident that happened, if you are injured in the future (no jinx, I hope it never happens to you) and can move without getting really extra hurt… get out of the road!
Do not get run over waiting for the police to arrive. If you have to, leave your bike where it is, and get to safety.

Keep the Evidence!

Save the helmet. Do not sell, repair, or trash the bike.
These are now important pieces of evidence; ask your motorcycle crash accident attorney what to do with the helmet and bike.

Do not discuss the case

Do not post information about your motorcycle accident on Facebook or MySpace. Do not discuss it with folks in your bowling league or softball team.
Such conversations can be misquoted or even become damaging to your case later down the road.

Be informed about your legal rights

Do not speak with the insurance company investigator until after you have contacted, and had a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer.
You should be informed about your legal rights, and know about what to expect.

Motorcycle ownership and riding skills are not mutual

Motorcycle ownership and riding skills are not mutual. You could own twenty bikes, yet still be an unsafe or unskilled motorcycle rider.
Your riding experience, habits and actions may be a big factor in terms of what a jury may do when it comes time to deciding who is at fault, or, if both you and the car driver are at fault.

Visibility is a key factor

Most motorcycle accidents that are fatal happen at night, in an intersection.
There are many different fatal motorcycle accident circumstances, such as tractor trailers cutting off the lane; opening parked car doors into an oncoming bike and failure to look for, seeing, and comprehending that a motorcycle is nearby.
Visibility is often a key factor as well, in motorcycle death lawsuits and motorcycle injury lawsuits.

You shared the road, the car driver did not!

You shared the road, the car driver did not. Motorcycle personal injury attorneys need to understand motorcycle riders and riding, you need to understand that a motorcycle accident attorney should be consulted as soon as possible.
