If you were in a Motorcycle Accident, Time is of the Essence

Following any type of motor vehicle accident, especially a motorcycle wreck, seek medical treatment as soon as you are able. This is not only crucial to your health and wellbeing, it is important to whatever case you may have down the road. Be honest and consistent when describing your symptoms and injuries to various medical care providers such as first responders, emergency medical personnel, hospital physicians, etc.

Similarly, it is very important to remain consistent in how you describe the accident and preceding moments to police officers, insurance company representatives, and anyone else. If you are unsure of what happened, do not be afraid to indicate as such.

In addition to the physical pain caused by the motorcycle accident, you may also experience disorientation, confusion, the inability to think clearly, and even temporary or permanent bits of memory loss. During this extremely challenging time of crisis, a quick call to your attorney may help you calm down, collect your thoughts, understand your rights and legal implications, as well as how to communicate effectively with your insurance company in the days, weeks, and months following the accident.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
