Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
While all driving is inherently dangerous, motorcyclists assume even more risk when they ride. From environmental hazards, like loose gravel and slippery surfaces, to the hazards other drivers create, such as unsafe maneuvers or inattention to their surroundings, many dangers exist on the open road. Even when wearing all necessary protection, like leather chaps and jackets or certified helmets, it is still possible to receive life-threatening injuries following an accident. If you are involved in a motorcycle collision, ensure you contact a Calgary motorcycle accident lawyer.
The dangers of the open road cannot be overstated. When involved in a motorcycle accident, injuries can range from road rash and scarring to facial disfigurement and spinal cord injuries. The sheer scope of possible injuries, however, is difficult to encapsulate as many factors (i.e. speed, weight, personal protective equipment) will influence which injuries are sustained. In some cases, these damages can leave people paralyzed and reliant on support from their loved ones and the healthcare system. Ensuring adequate compensation for the victims of motorcycle collisions is imperative for Timothy Dunlap.
In the aftermath of a motorcycle-related incident, your primary focus should be on ensuring the safety of yourself and those around you. If possible, collect contact information from those involved and take pictures of the scene. As soon as possible after the accident, contact our Calgary injury lawyer and set up a meeting. We will advise you on the next steps during the meeting, including the information needed to submit a successful claim. After assessing the full extent of your injuries and gathering the necessary evidence, our motorcycle accident lawyer will draft a letter of intent. Settlement negotiations may be required before your claim is accepted. If there is conflict or disagreement about the request, we will defend you during the litigation process.
What to Do Following an Accident
Every accident will be different, not only for the people involved but also the circumstances and location. So, while it is important to gather contact information, take pictures of the accident, call the police, identify any witnesses, and of course, contact your lawyer, injuries might not allow for these activities. If you are unsure if you sustained injuries, keep your helmet and riding gear on until paramedics and first responders arrive, as they can help assess you. As a final note, don’t admit fault to the other driver(s), witnesses or police.
