Motorcycle Accidents

Injured After a Motorcycle Collison?

Motorcycles are a great way to get around town, and are immensely popular in Southern California. However, since motorcycle riders are not protected by an enclosed cab, motorcycle accidents tend to be devastating and can lead to more significant personal injuries than collisions between two vehicles. At Sahar Malek APC, our first focus will be getting you well. After that, we will gather evidence and ensure that you receive the maximum damages possible. Motorcycle accidents can be life altering, which is why we are here to help.

Know Your Rights:

It is very common for motorcycle accidents to be caused by vehicle drivers who do not properly check their blind spots. Motorcycles are much smaller than cars and it is every driver’s responsibility to double check for small vehicles before they speed up, brake, merge, or change lanes. As a motorcycle rider, it is important for you to understand that in order for fault to be determined, you should not admit fault at the scene of the accident. Additionally, you have the right to call for medical help, a right to file a police report, and a right to speak to witnesses about what happened. You also have the right to legal representation, so call us right away for help.

Understanding your Injuries:

Motorcycle accidents almost always lead to injuries. Below are the most common injuries sustained by motorcycle accident victims. Understanding what you are most likely to experience can help to expedite your medical care following a collision.

  • Road rash (scrapes caused by your skin coming into contact with the road).
  • Broken bones.
  • Burns.
  • Facial Fractures.
  • Spinal cord injuries.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).

Safety tips

Always wear proper protective gear, even when it is not legally required. This can help prevent burns and road rash in the event of an accident, and helmets can prevent traumatic brain injury.
