Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Arizona | Common Injuries
Unfortunately, there is a bias against motorcycle riders. It is not fair at all, but some people think that motorcycle riders are riskier drivers. They also tend to think that these riders should know better because motorcycles are unsafe. It is a frustrating bias that your experienced attorney will know how to handle, but because it exists, drivers of vehicles like cars, trucks, or SUVs tend not to pay special notice to motorcycles on the road. The most frequent cause of these accidents is when cars merge without looking carefully. Some people are careless when sharing the road with motorcycles and that can cause the worst accidents. The types of injuries that we see a lot include:
- Broken bones and fractures
- Road burn
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Traumatic brain injury
- Concussion or contusion
- Internal organ damage
What to Do After a Crash
What you need to be aware of is how important it is to get these injuries taken care of. After the accident, it is important to get the police on the scene so that they can record the accident, and if you’re able to stay and take photos and talk to witnesses, that’s great, but if you’re so severely injured, you need to get on an ambulance. Even if you’re not in life-threatening condition, you need to know that immediate medical attention is a priority. You do not want to wait and worsen your condition. Also, is it important to seek medical attention because you want to be able to document that amount of damage the liable party cause you so you can show their insurance company that they owe you compensation for your injuries.
