A motorcycle accident is different

There is a lot that can go wrong when driving a motorcycle. Motorcycle riders are more exposed than auto drivers. So, the injuries they sustain can be more severe. Also, there is somewhat of a stigma attached to bikers that doesn't help your case. Overall, there are characteristics unique to motorcycle accidents that are helpful to know if you're ever in one.

When you get into an accident, there may be a lot hiding below the surface. You could have injuries that won't show themselves for days, weeks or even months. Thus, it is important to see a doctor right away, even if your injuries seem minor.

Also, there is often a bad reputation associated with motorcyclists. People think that they are reckless, speeding, or weaving in and out of traffic in a dangerous way. But it is usually auto drivers that cause the crash. It could be that the driver didn't see the motorcycle. The driver could have also made a mistake of his own, such as running a stop sign or not changing lanes in the correct way. Professional investigators and accident reconstructionists can examine the scene. They can also use witness accounts to help determine liability. If the crash was the fault of someone else, you might have a lawsuit that goes in your favor.

Furthermore, motorcycle insurance often doesn't cover lost wages and medical expenses. If your insurance did not cover you in full for an accident, it is still possible to get treatment now. You could get service now by spending cash later from the settlement money you may receive, for example. You also may be able to get money from other insurance sources as well.

Of course, it would be difficult to do all this on your own, especially after a traumatic accident.
