After A Motorcycle Accident When To Call An Attorney?

On behalf of greg

Getting into a motorcycle accident can be scary in the aftermath can be confusing. Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries, and it may be necessary to secure an attorney in order to get the compensation you deserve. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., we are going to investigate what happened in your accident, prove the other driver’s liability, and get you back on your feet. Call us when you need a Philadelphia motorcycle accident attorney.

Motorcycle accidents are not uncommon

According to data from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, we know that there were 2,714 total motorcycle crashes during the latest reporting year in the state. Out of these incidents, there were:

  • 164 motorcycle crash fatalities
  • 2,611 motorcycle crash injuries

When looking at those numbers, you can see the vast majority of motorcycle crashes result in an injury or fatality for motorcycle riders and their passengers. These incidents often lead to serious injuries such as the following:

  • Spinal cord trauma (possible paralysis)
  • Head injuries/traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or road rash

Your first steps after a motorcycle accident

The first step you need to take after a motorcycle accident occurs is to seek medical assistance immediately. This may require taking an ambulance to the hospital. Even if you do not feel any pain immediately following a motorcycle crash, please understand that many motorcycle accident injuries do not show signs or symptoms until hours or even days after the crash.

After any injuries are tended to, and the initial emergency is over, you may need to search for an experienced Philadelphia motorcycle accident lawyer to take your case. It is important to involve an attorney early in the process. It may be difficult to secure the compensation you truly are entitled to, even if somebody else was at fault for your motorcycle crash. Insurance companies can be aggressive, and you may not want to pay the amount you are entitled to in a settlement.

  • Talk to an attorney before you call your insurance carrier and before you speak to the other driver’s insurance carrier.
  • A free consultation with a Philadelphia motorcycle accident attorney will help you understand the process of the insurance settlement and what you are up against.
