Investigating Motorcycle Accidents Requires Expertise, Experience and Resources
Investigating a motorcycle accident requires a significant amount of time and resources. The investigating attorney not only must have an extensive, specialized knowledge about motorcycle accident law, but they must also have a firm understanding of investigation techniques, evidence handling practices, a high level of attention to detail, and the financial resources necessary to conduct a thorough investigation. When you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need a team of lawyers that has years of experience building a strong case supported by solid evidence and facts.
A number of experts will likely need to be consulted during a motorcycle accident investigation as well. In particular, medical professionals and specialists will be relied upon to perform a comprehensive medical examination and provide a detailed report regarding the severity of any injuries sustained during the motorcycle accident and whether those injuries have a likelihood of causing more medical problems in the future.
In most motorcycle accident cases, there is likely a need to locate witnesses and obtain their statements about the accident. Similarly, there may have been a traffic camera, security footage or someone’s vehicle dash cam that incidentally video recorded the accident. Photographs need to be taken at the scene of the accident, and your statements about the accident need to be recorded in writing.
Furthermore, the police report concerning the motorcycle accident needs to be procured, as well as medical records concerning your injuries and any doctor prognosis, recommendations or reports. Your legal counsel should be able to collect all of this evidence and more to help bolster the strength of your case.
Common Types of Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents usually cause serious harm to those involved in the accident, with the motorcyclist likely to sustain serious bodily injury since there is very little in place to protect him or her from direct impact with the asphalt or another vehicle. The types of injuries that can be sustained as the result of a motorcycle accident vary greatly, and can include, but are not limited to, injuries such as:
Being thrown from a motorcycle is very common in a motorcycle accident, which can cause the motorcyclist to sustain fractured and/or broken bones, serious contusions or internal bruising, and even internal bleeding if he or she impacts into a vehicle or the ground with sufficient force.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Closed head injuries are often associated with motorcycle accidents. If the motorcyclist hits his or her head during an accident, the force could cause a bruise, contusion or bleed in the brain, which, if untreated, could become a serious medical condition.
Spinal Cord Injuries and Paralysis
Significant Cosmetic Injuries
Many times, motorcyclists are traveling at a great rate of speed during an accident, which causes them to skid along the asphalt, causing serious road rash to the skin, possible disfigurement, and the possibility of a lost limb.
The worst possible scenario involving a motorcycle accident is that someone dies as a result of the accident.
