Motorcycle accident victims may be entitled to compensation for their injuries and/or property damage. Even if you do not feel injured, be sure to accept any medical treatment offered at the accident site. Often, injuries do not become apparent until after the adrenaline subsides. By refusing medical care, you risk compromising your future financial entitlements.
Additionally, before taking your bike in for repair, be certain to photograph its damages. Also, photograph all your body’s physically visible injuries. This visual evidence will enhance the monetary value of your personal and property claims.
Many times, motorcycle accidents occur due to another driver’s carelessness. This can be due to the driver turning left in front of you, changing lanes into you, or hitting you from behind.
A Car Turns Left In Front Of You
• The most common motorcycle accident. A car fails to see you or judges your speed incorrectly, turning in front of you at an intersection. This can be due to inattention, distraction, blind spots and even psychology; a driver looking for cars perceives merely an absence of cars, not the presence of a motorcycle.

A Car Changes Lanes Into You
• You’re riding in traffic when a car in another lane suddenly veers into the space you’re occupying. Remember, tiny motorcycles can easily fit into blind spots and drivers looking for cars aren’t psychologically programmed to see motorcycles.

A Car Hits You From Behind
• You come to a halt at a stop sign/cross walk/intersection when, the driver behind you doesn’t see you or doesn’t stop and plows into you at high speed. The most common car accident is a “fender bender.” A fender bender can change a motorcyclist life forever. If you’re injured because a car hit your motorcycle from behind and you’re wondering- “What Do You Do Now?” you’ve got rights and we’ve got answers- that pay.
