What to do following a motorcycle accident
First and foremost, in instances such as these, your health and well being is always the first priority.
The most common type of motorbike accident injury is to the head. Often, there is a violent movement of the head on impact which causes the brain to shift in the skull. This can stretch and squeeze the brain tissue and blood vessels, causing damage. Therefore, the first thing you need to do is seek medical assistance to assess your medical condition and attend to any injuries.
If the other party was at fault for the accident, once you’ve received medical attention, it’s extremely important to consult with a personal injury solicitor who is experienced in motorbike accident claims.
Unfortunately, when it comes to pointing the finger and determining fault, there is a great deal of bias toward the motorcyclist. This is due to generalisations that motorcyclists drive too fast and too dangerously. Therefore, if you want to make a motorcycle accident claim, proving your side of the case may be more difficult and require more evidence than other road traffic accident claims.
Our specialist motorbike accident solicitors have been through all this before. They will be experienced in these types of cases and will know what it takes to get the compensation you deserve.
