Milton Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

In Milton, there are really only a few months of every year that allow motorcyclists to get on their bike and enjoy their passion for riding. Once spring and summer hit, motorcyclists are anxious to dust off their bikes and hit the road once again. It is important that motorists of other vehicles keep an eye out for motorcycles during these months, as motorcycle accidents can be deadly for the motorcyclist.

That being said, sometimes keeping an eye out is not enough to protect you from negligent drivers. A qualified local personal injury lawyer can be an invaluable asset if you do sustain an injury as the result of negligent driving. Your lawyer can help you pursue damages. If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you speak to a Milton motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible after the accident.

Common Motorcycle Injuries

Motorcyclists are extremely lucky if they are able to walk away from an accident with just a few cuts and bruises. This is because motorcyclists are almost completely exposed, with only a helmet to protect them. Too often motorcycle accidents are fatal for the cyclist and if they do survive the accident, the injuries they sustain are typically very serious.

Injuries to the legs and feet are the most common in motorcycle accidents for a couple of reasons. The first is that these areas of the body are often closest to other vehicles, and can become crushed if a vehicle sideswipes them. Accidents in which the motorcycle is hit in the side are also the most common type of motorcycle accident, with the motorcyclist’s legs feeling the most impact.

Injuries to the legs and feet are also common due to the fact that motorcyclists are often thrown from their bike in an accident. This can cause the legs to scrape the pavement, causing things like road rash, broken bones, and even serious cuts that could lead to infection. When a motorcyclist falls onto the pavement during the course of an accident their head may also hit the pavement, and usually with great force. It is for this reason that head injuries are the second most common type of injury suffered by motorcyclists, and it is why motorcycle helmets are mandatory in Ontario.

These are just the two most common types of injuries suffered by motorcyclists in the event of an accident. Injuries to the chest, back, shoulders, hands, arms, pelvis and hips may also be present after an accident. Anytime injuries are present after an accident, motorcyclists need to speak to a Milton motorcycle accident lawyer.

Steps to Take after a Motorcycle Accident

The moments after an accident can be very stressful, with a lot happening and possible injuries to keep victims from being fully aware and focused on what to do next. Of course all information should be exchanged between drivers, including contact information, driver’s license information, and insurance information.

As soon as possible, those involved should also seek medical treatment, even if they do not think they have been injured. Some injuries take some time to show symptoms, but a doctor may be able to diagnose them with simple tests.

Once these basics have been taken care of, there are still steps injured parties should take in order to help them with a claim they may be filing. These are:

  • Taking regular pictures of all injuries
  • Recording notes about medical treatment received including doctor’s notes, medical prescriptions, and notes about pain resulting from the accident
  • Documenting the length of time the injury has kept injured parties away from work
  • Recording other expenses incurred as a result of the accident
