LET JARAMILLO AND ASSOCIATES, P.A. FIGHT FOR YOU

The Hurt Report did a massive study on motorcycle accidents. They collected data from Los Angeles and surrounding communities. They discovered 75% of accidents involved a motorcycle and passenger vehicle. They also found out that a major cause of these accidents was a passenger vehicle driver’s failure to see motorcycles in traffic. Motorcycle accidents can result in a variety of injuries and are extremely dangerous for motorcyclists:

  • Brain damage or a concussion
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Soft tissue damage from sliding across asphalt
  • Facial disfigurement
  • “Biker’s arm”- a term used to describe the damage to the upper arm caused by a fall from a motorcycle
  • Broken bones

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

  • Take photographs of the scene where the incident occurred.
  • Call 911 and wait for the police to arrive on scene so that they may properly document the incident.
  • Make sure to get a copy of the “Driver Exchange of Information”. This is typically filled out by the police officer on scene and contains vital information about the accident such as the at-fault driver’s name, address, and insurance information
  • Do NOT leave the scene without the at-fault driver’s name, license plate number, and insurance information – Even if you feel the damage to your motorcycle was minimal or you are not in pain at the scene, you must always get the other driver’s information. There may be internal damage to your vehicle that may not reveal itself right away. Further, there may be physical injury to your body that may not reveal itself to you right away. An accident is a traumatic event. Traumatic events typically cause us to an experience an adrenaline rush which masks the symptoms of physical injury, the primary symptom being pain. Often, victims of accidents do not feel pain at the scene right away. Instead, later that day, the next morning, or even later that week (or month), may be when victims first begin to feel pain, after the adrenaline rush finally wears off.
  • If physically injured, seek medical attention right away. Even if you do not feel pain at the scene, you owe it to yourself to get checked out by a doctor. A Walk-in Clinic (or Emergency Room) is usually a good place to start.
