When You’re Injured in a Motorcycle Accident, You Want Lancaster, PA’s TOP Motorcycle Attorneys to Help You Get Maximum Compensation

As freeing as they can be, we know motorcyclists are at a greater risk of injuries than other motorists. Many times, people involved in a motorcycle accident suffer catastrophic injuries—injuries that are life-changing. When motorcyclist accidents lead to serious injury due to the neglect of another driver, our attorneys aggressively fight for the injured bikers’ rights.

There are several crucial factors every motorcyclist should be aware of, in the event they are injured in an accident.

Steps to Take Immediately After Being Involved in a Motorcycle Accident

After being involved in a motorcycle accident, an experienced personal injury attorney can help you recover compensation for any property damage or injuries that took place as a result of the accident. To ensure favorable results, you should:

  • Be Mindful of What you Say– When someone is involved in an accident, it is easy for emotions to take over. Often, accident victims say things at the scene of the crash that hurt them later. It is critical that you pay attention to the words you are saying when you are talking to police, witnesses, and insurance companies after the crash. Your words CAN BE USED AGAINST YOU! Never admit fault, even if you are not initially sure of who caused the accident. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney before speaking to an insurance company.
  • Seek Medical Attention– If you are injured as the result of a motorcycle crash, do not downplay your injuries. If you refuse treatment and then your injuries worsen (which they often do when the adrenaline wears off), the insurance company will maintain you had no injuries as the result of the collision. This can prevent you from recovering full compensation needed to cover your medical expenses.
  • Call the Police – If you are injured, or your bike is damaged, police should be called. This is another critical step when it comes to filing a personal injury claim. Keep a copy of the police report and double check it for errors as soon as possible and then notify an attorney of the discrepancies.
  • If Possible, Document the Scene – A picture can be worth a thousand words, and when it comes to personal injury cases, it can be worth thousands of dollars in compensation. Document everything you can. Property damage, the crash site, your injuries—take pictures and notes on everything! Debris can be cleaned off roads, damaged motorcycle parts can be lost, and injuries can heal over time. Documentation will give you a stronger and, very likely, a more valuable case.
  • Take Notes on Everything Following Your Accident – Injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash can have a major impact on your everyday life. You may be unable to return to work, school or your social world until you completely recover from your injuries. Be sure to document the times and dates of these events that have been missed, along with any lost income resulting from your injuries.
  • Call a Personal Injury Attorney Right Away – at Georgelis Injury Law Firm, we review each case for free, and there is never a fee until we secure money for you. The sooner you call an experience attorney following an accident, the better your chances of winning your case. We will help guide you through the entire process, making certain there are no missteps along the way.

When Do I Have a Case?

If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident and it was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to make a monetary recovery by pursuing a personal injury claim. In fact, you may be entitled to financial compensation even if the accident was partially your fault.

Every case is unique, and the circumstances surrounding the various fact scenarios are all contributing factors when deciding if you have a case. Some of the most common types of damages awarded in a motorcycle accident include:

  • Reimbursement for out-of-pocket medical expenses
  • Compensation for projected future medical expenses
  • Past and projected lost wages or income
  • Pain and suffering
