Have You Been Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
Common advice given to new motorcyclists by experienced riders is, “Assume you are invisible and operate your motorcycle accordingly.”
Two-thirds of all car-motorcycle accidents are caused by the automobile driver, not the rider. Drivers either don’t see or don’t bother to look out for something smaller than the average car. Consequently, almost 70 percent of wrecks involving motorcycles happen at street intersections where cars turn in front of motorcycles or rear-end them.
The difference in size makes a collision between car and motorcycle especially dangerous for the rider, resulting in catastrophic or even fatal injuries.
The experienced lawyers at Heuser & Heuser will work with the victim and/or the family to figure out present and future needs and secure the maximum money damages for our client. We have been helping accident victims in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Alamosa, the Arkansas Valley, Pikes Peak and elsewhere along the Front Range for 25 years.
What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident
Make sure you and anyone else in the accident are not in danger of further injury from passing traffic, and that everyone who was hurt receives medical attention.
The next thing you should do is get the right legal protection. The motorcycle accident lawyers at Heuser & Heuser will start to work for you on day one, gathering and collecting as much information as possible about the scene of the accident, including witness statements and photos. We can use this information along with medical documents, police reports and other records to win your case.
To further support your claim, we may conduct an accident investigation to establish the sequence of events that led to the accident. Working with experts to reconstruct the collision can reveal details that are crucial to a successful case.
