Protect Yourself and Your Rights After a Motorcycle Accident

There are over 8 million motorcycles registered in the United States and make up only 3% of registered vehicles. Motorcyclists are a minority on the road. Because of that, many drivers do not give them proper road respect.

While motorcyclists make up a small percentage of drivers, they make up 10 to 14% of vehicle accident fatalities. Over 80,000 motorcyclists are injured in accidents every year. Over 4,500 lose their lives. The tragic truth is that around 80% of the time, it’s not the motorcyclist’s fault. 

Our attorneys for motorcycle accidents in Utah want to help you protect yourself and your rights after a motorcycle accident.

Motorcycle Accident FAQs

Here are answers to your motorcycle accident FAQs from our motorcycle accident lawsuit team.

If you’re a motorcycle rider in an accident, you should stay calm and get to a safe place. Call 911 and ensure that you and anyone else who is injured receives medical treatment. Take note of the vehicles involved in the accident. Take photos if you can. Get the other driver’s name, address, phone number, and most importantly, insurance information. Call your insurance company as soon as possible.

If you have been badly injured from a motorcycle accident caused by another driver, speak with a personal injury lawyer for motorcycle accidents to pursue a claim for compensation. They can help you process your claim while you focus on recuperating. Your lawyer will process the compensation claim on your behalf more efficiently, and this will save you from the pitfalls of insurance claims and the legal process.

Motorcycle Medical Payments Insurance is insurance that helps cover the medical-related expenses you or a passenger incur from a motorcycle accident, even if you’re at fault. It may cover things like deductibles, prescriptions, home care, co-pays, and more. It doesn’t cover the medical costs to treat injuries to others you may have caused when riding your motorcycle.

For motorcycle accidents in Utah, there is a comparative negligence policy that follows a 50% rule. Your fault should be less than 50% to be able to get compensation. Do not admit anything on the scene of the accident to the police or to an insurance adjuster. You might not be in the best shape to analyze what happened, and you might not have noticed some of the events. Let the investigation resolve the question of whose fault the accident was and get a personal injury lawyer to help your case.

If you’re in a motorcycle accident, you may use your insurance, the other party’s insurance, or your own health insurance. There may also be employer insurance or workers’ compensation available to you as well as a third-party legal claim. An attorney for motorcycle accidents can help you determine what insurance to use and if the insurance company is paying you fairly.
