What to Do after a Motorcycle Accident
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, seek medical attention. It is important to have your injuries documented by the emergency room or hospital staff. Motorcycle accident injuries tend to be severe and include broken bones, road rash, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. After your injuries have been attended to,contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney. Seek a Certified Specialist in Injury/Death cases (the top 1% of Arizona attorneys). It can be extremely important to speak with qualified legal counsel before speaking with any insurance company, especially the other driver’s insurance company. Under no circumstances should you give a statement before you speak with an experienced injury attorney. If possible, take pictures of your injuries, bumps, bruises and lacerations. Take pictures of the property damage to your bike.
What Happens if You Wait to Seek Legal Advice?
You may waive certain rights if you talk to an insurance company. If you make statements (sometimes deemed admissions) to an insurance company, it may complicate the claims process. As part of the comprehensive services we provide to injured people, we are knowledgeable about insurance law and provide representation to people who are underinsured or do not have insurance.
