Motorcyclists are less protected than motorists who are in enclosed vehicles. Therefore, when a motorcyclist experiences an accident, for example, with a collision with a car or a truck, they usually suffer more serious injuries than vehicle occupants.
According to the Insurance Information Institute (III), 5,172 motorcyclists died in accidents in 2017 alone. The III also states that motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to die in an accident than passenger vehicle occupants.
Protect Your Rights
After an accident, especially if another driver’s recklessness or negligence is responsible for the crash, you can take some important steps to protect your rights.
Consult with Your doctor
If you have not yet seen a doctor, you should get a medical evaluation as soon as possible after an accident. Consider that some injuries may not be immediately apparent. According to the Mayo Clinic, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be a serious head injury that, in some cases, may go undetected for days and even weeks. Something you might consider harmless, such as a persistent headache, could be the sign of a serious condition.
Also, consider your legal rights. If you wait too long before seeing a doctor and later decide to take legal action against a negligent driver, it can be tough to prove that your injuries stem from the accident. Seeing a doctor right away can provide you with the necessary evidence detailing injuries from the accident.
