What Should I do Immediately Following a Motorcycle Accident to protect my Claim?
Immediately following your motorcycle accident, the responsible party’s insurance investigators may attempt to take advantage of you in your vulnerable state. Don’t speak with them or give them any type of statement. They will try to use it against you. If you aren’t seriously injured, focusing on collecting evidence to strengthen your case. Here are some steps you can take to protect yourself:
- Do not give a written or oral statement to any insurance agent.
- Do not sign anything
- If possible, take pictures of the scene (skid marks, off road tire tracks, yaw and scuff marks, etc.)
- Get the names and contact information of any potential witnesses
As soon as possible after a motorcycle accident, you should contact a motorcycle accident claim attorney to ensure that critical evidence is preserved. The truth is that in most cases motorcycle accidents are largely the fault of someone other than the motorcycle rider. A report put together by the European Association of Guarantee Institutions found that most motorcycle accidents are caused by human error. The most frequent error, however, was not from the motorcyclists. It was a failure by drivers in other vehicles to see a motorcyclist either due to inattention, a view obstruction, or general trouble seeing riders.
What type of Injury is most prevalent in Motorcycle Accident Claims?
One of the biggest risks to motorcycle riders is head injuries. Helmets are not bullet proof. The IIHS points out that helmets are about 37% effective in preventing deaths in a crash and 67% effective in preventing brain injuries. Missouri has a strange love-hate relationship with helmet laws. Missouri Statutes Section 302.020 provides that a motorcycle operator or passenger must wear “protective headgear” at all times the vehicle is in motion. The fine for a violation is only $25, though. Additionally, a violation does not result in any points to your license. Even with these light penalties, there has been strong momentum to repeal the law in recent years because many riders feel that it infringes on their rights. A repeal bill passed the state House of Representatives in early 2017, but that bill died in the Senate.
