Motorcycle Accidents

Among all highway drivers, motorcyclists are the most at risk of suffering serious injury due to the actions of another party. If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, it’s important that you understand your rights and receive the full compensation you’re owed.

For a motorcycle accident lawyer in Greater Cincinnati, Hamilton, and Northern Kentucky, contact The Richards Firm today.

The open road can be a dangerous place, especially for motorcyclists. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 84,000 motorcyclists are injured every year. Motorcyclists are also 27 more times likely to experience a fatal accident than car drivers, resulting in the deaths of 5000 motorcyclists annually. If you’ve been injured as a motorcyclist or you’ve lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, you need professional legal guidance.

Motorcyclists are often seen as reckless thrill seekers. When accidents involving a motorcycle happen, many are quick to blame the motorcyclist. This can result in underpaid compensation, or worse, denial of valid claims.

It’s important for you to understand your rights and the options available to you, especially when you’ve suffered due to the actions of someone else. As an experienced motorcycle accident law firm, we are well-versed in Ohio and Kentucky traffic laws and accident liability. Contact The Richards Firm today and make sure your needs are met and justice is obtained.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, the first thing you should always do is take care of your immediate needs. Even if the accident doesn’t appear to be serious, it’s best to dial 911. Whether or not you need immediate medical assistance, they’ll send a police offer who will create a record of the incident and capture information at the scene. It’s also important to gather your own information and evidence if you’re physically capable.

This typically includes the following:

  • Gathering witness contact information
  • Taking photos of the scene of the accident
  • Writing down all the details you remember
  • Contacting your insurance company (don’t admit fault)
  • Getting a police report

It’s also very important that you don’t wait to take care of your medical needs, vehicle repairs, etc. It’s almost always a good idea to have yourself checked out by a physical therapist or chiropractor. They may find issues you don’t immediately notice. They can help you look out for physical issues that don’t become prevalent until days or weeks after the accident.

Finally, you should speak to a trustworthy motorcycle accident attorney. They will help simplify the complexities of fault, legal liability, insurance claims, medical bills, and more. With everything going on after an accident, it can be difficult to stay on top of everything. This typically results in claims being underpaid. The longer you wait to speak to an attorney, the more difficult your case will be to build.
