Injuries and Damages in a Motorcycle Crash
The range of potential injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash is huge. Common injuries that motorcyclists may sustain include:
- Head and traumatic brain injuries;
- Back and neck injuries;
- Soft tissue injuries;
- Bone fractures;
- Injuries to extremities;
- Crush and amputation injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Internal injuries;
- Psychological injuries; and
Of course, these injuries don’t just mean physical losses – they also mean economic and noneconomic losses in the form of lost wages, medical expenses, property damage costs, and pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
Who Pays for Damages After a Motorcycle Accident?
Unlike the drivers of standard motor vehicles who are required to file a claim with their personal injury protection insurance provider before turning to the tort system, motorcyclists maintain the right to pursue damages against the liability insurance provider of the at-fault driver or file a lawsuit against the at-fault party.
Liability–and who will pay for damages–is based on fault. A motorcyclist will need to prove that the driver involved in their crash (against whom they are filing a claim) did something negligent that caused the accident. Examples of negligence include speeding, driving too fast for conditions, drinking while driving, and performing an illegal maneuver.
Steps to Take Right Now
If you are in a motorcycle crash, important steps to take afterward include:
- Filing a police report with the police;
- Seeking medical care;
- Calling your insurance provider;
- Gathering as much evidence as possible;
- Calling a Land O’Lakes personal injury attorney.
You only have so much time to act after a crash! If you wait too long to file your claim or take legal action, your right to recovery may be barred.
