What Is a Motorcycle Accident?

It is a simple question, but it always important to understand the legal basis for a motorcycle accident. A motorcycle lawsuit is similar to a car accident lawsuit. In legal terms, a car accident involves a claim for negligence.

Negligence requires an injured party to establish four elements, 1.) Duty, 2.) Breach, 3.) Causation, and 4.) Damages. 

Duty and breach establish who is at fault for the collision. A driver has a duty to operate their motor vehicle in a safe and prudent fashion.

A driver that does not drive in a safe and prudent fashion is at fault. For example, if a driver fails to obey a stop sign and hits another vehicle. That drive will have breached their duty and be at fault.

The third and fourth elements go to what are the damages caused by the collision. Damages include economic damages, non-economic damages, and physical impairment/scarring.

Economic damages are anything you can put a dollar amount to. These would include hospital bills, lost wages, and property damages.

Non-economic damages is pain and suffer and loss of enjoyment of life. These are the general damages related to you changes in daily behavior.

Physical impairment involves damages for impairment and any scarring you may have a result of injuries or surgeries.

Causation is the process of proving the collision caused the damages. Colorado law breaks down causation into direct and proximate causation.

Direct causation is a “but for” determination, i.e., but for the accident the person would not be injured. However, the damages also must be foreseeable and related.

What Are Common Injuries after a Motorcycle Accident?

Motorcycle accident victims will suffer some of the most significant losses involved in injury claims. The type of injury depends on the facts of the case, but the lack of protection surrounding the rider.

What to Do After an Accident

A motorcycle collision can have tragic consequences on a person’s life. Each case is different, and there is not a one size fits all approach. These are general suggestions that individuals should take to ensure the best possible outcome for their cases.

Get Medical Care

Your health is perhaps the most important thing to consider and worry about after an accident. Medical care is the first priority. If you are injured or hurt, seek medical treatment as soon as you can. Do not worry about investigating or getting information, your health takes priority.

The Lawrence Law Firm wants to help you get back to normal as quickly as you can. We are not medical doctors though, and we encourage people to follow their doctor's advice.
Document You Injuries

After an accident, it is important to photograph the damages. Take pictures of the location, debris, and damages to other vehicles involved in the collision.

Do the same for any injuries you sustain. It could be important to keep a journal of what you are going through and how it is impacting you.

Notify Insurance about the Accident

It is also important to start by filing a claim with the at fault driver's insurance. This way, the insurance company can start investigating on their end.

You will also want to notify your insurance company if you have Underinsured motorist coverage or medical payments coverage.

It is important to safeguard all potential pools of recovery. Most insurance policies will require notice to be given to ensure the police is not voided.

Medical payments coverage are benefits that will cover medical bills, regardless of fault. If you have Medpay, it could be used to limit upfront costs. The at fault insurance company will not pay your medical bills until you are done with treatment.

Collect Documentation

Evidence is crucial in any personal injury case. This can include taking pictures and talking to witnesses. An important part of any investigation is the traffic accident report.

These are usually generated by law enforcement. To get them, you need to speak with the police department that responded. If you hire an attorney, they will do that for you. Our firm routinely gets accident reports from the Aurora Police Department, Denver Police Department, and other agencies in the metro area.
