What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident
The steps you take after a motorcycle accident are vital to the success of your claim. It is important to remain calm and focus on injury treatment and evidence gathering during this time.
Injury treatment is the most important post-collision step. Not only does prompt care ensure you receive the medical attention you need, it establishes the severity of your injuries from the start. Delaying your medical treatment could signal to the other driver’s insurance company that you are exaggerating your claims.
The aftermath of your collision is also an essential time for evidence gathering. During this process, you can collect information about the accident scene, the other driver, and any witnesses.
You should take the following steps immediately after a motorcycle accident:
- Call 911 and receive medical attention as soon as possible
- Speak with the police and file a report
- Get the other driver’s contact information and insurance details
- Speak to any available witnesses and gather their contact information
- Take pictures of the accident scene and collect any other information about the collision
Statute of Limitations for Motorcycle Accidents
A motorcycle accident claim must be filed within the established statute of limitations. In the state of Georgia, the statute of limitations for motorcycle accident claims is the same as all personal injury claims. Claims must be filed within 2 years of a motorcycle accident. If an accident results in a death, the 2-year statute of limitations begins on the date of the victim’s death.
Should I Speak to the Other Driver’s Insurance Company?
Following a motorcycle accident, you may be contacted by the other driver’s insurance company. You should not speak to the other driver’s insurance provider on your own. Although it may seem that they are simply asking for your side of the story, their goal is to have you admit fault so they will not need to pay your claim. Without the guidance of an attorney, you may say something that the insurance company can twist to serve their own purposes.
Our Savannah motorcycle accident lawyers can guide you through conversations with the other driver’s insurance company or speak to them on your behalf. We will represent your rights throughout the claim process and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
Who is Responsible for Paying My Medical Bills?
Your outlet for recovering compensation after a motorcycle accident will depend on your insurance policy and who is liable for the collision. Georgia is a fault-based state, meaning the responsibility for damages will generally fall on the driver who caused the accident. You can receive coverage for your medical bills and other expenses by filing a claim with their insurance company. If your own insurance policy includes personal injury protection, you may be able to receive benefits through your own provider as well.
It is possible that another party could be liable for your damages. In cases of vehicle malfunction, the car or motorcycle manufacturer or a mechanic could be liable for damages. Other causes of motorcycle accidents that could be the fault of a third party may include road conditions and weather, intoxication (in which the business that supplied alcohol could be liable for damages), or construction and other hazards.
Compensation Available for Motorcycle Accident Victims
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident in Georgia that was due to someone else’s negligence, you might be entitled to substantial compensation.
Our skilled personal injury lawyers can help you file a claim to recover compensation for several damages, including:
- Past, present, and future medical bills
- Lost wages for missing work
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
- Costs associated with repairing or replacing your motorcycle
- Loss of future income earning ability
- Additional expenses incurred due to the accident
Proving Fault in a Motorcycle Injury Claim
Success in a personal injury claim is not easy. If you would like to collect money to help pay for your losses resulting from a motorcycle accident, you will need to prove that the other driver was negligent and at least 51% at fault for the incident.
Acts of negligence include:
- Running a stop sign
- Failing to yield
- Drinking and driving
- Being distracted
- Driving aggressively
- Failing to check blind spots for motorcyclists
On top of proving the other party’s fault, you will have to demonstrate that their negligence directly led to the accident and caused your injuries. If you are found to be 50% or more at fault for your accident, then you will not be able to recover any compensation for your injuries.
