Phoenix Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle riders are some of the most vulnerable travelers on Arizona’s roads. In fact, riders are about 35 times more likely than people in passenger vehicles to suffer fatal injuries any time they hit the roads. While this elevated risk of injury is related to the lack of protections riders have (like a lack of seatbelts and airbags, for example), it also stems from the facts that:

  • Riders can be difficult for other motorists to see and avoid, especially if the other motorists may be distracted or impaired.
  • Even low-speed crashes can cause catastrophic harm to motorcyclists (due to the lack of protections and the weight discrepancies between motorcycles and other vehicles on the roads).

At the Law Office of Richard Langerman, we have been dedicated to helping injured riders recover from wrecks for more than two decades. Our Phoenix auto accident lawyer, Richard Langerman, is skilled at helping injured riders pursue all options for recovery, and he will fight to help victims maximize their compensation.

What to Do after a Motorcycle Accident

Knowing what to do when a motorcycle crash happens can be crucial to protecting yourself and a possible claim for compensation. Some of the most important things to do after a motorcycle accident include (and may not be limited to):

  • Calling 911 and reporting the crash
  • Getting immediate medical care
  • Taking pictures of the crash damage
  • Collecting the names and contact information for all of the parties involved in the crash, including other motorists and/or any witnesses to the wreck
  • Reporting the crash to insurance companies
  • Contacting a lawyer to discover what else may be need to be done in order to secure the compensation you may deserve for your crash-related losses and injuries.

 

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

The physical damage that can result from motorcycle accidents will vary according to:

  • The point of impact of the crash
  • How fast a rider and/or other motorists were traveling prior to the wreck
  • Whether the motorcyclist was wearing a safety helmet and/or other safety gear.

Generally, however, some of the most common types of injuries that are caused by motorcycle accidents include:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Neck and shoulder injuries
  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • Disfigurement, scarring and/or loss of limb(s)
  • Paraplegia or quadriplegia
  • Nerve damage
  • Burn injuries.

These injuries can, in turn, result in psychological impacts and/or financial damages, making it challenging for motorcycle accident victims to pick up the pieces and recover from these wrecks.

Recovering from a Motorcycle Accident

While medical professionals can be essential to physically (and possibly psychologically) recovering from motorcycle crashes, attorneys can be the key to helping victims financially recover from the damage caused by these wrecks.

In fact, depending on the specifics of a crash, victims may be able to secure compensation for (and not necessarily limited to) their:

  • Medical bills, including future treatment needs
  • Lost wages, both past and future lost income
  • Property damage
  • Mental suffering.
