If you receive medical care, that process is a natural next step following the scene of the accident. There are two major reasons why it is important to seek medical care following an accident involving a motorcycle. Firstly, doctors and medical professionals can identify injuries that are not obvious to the hurt individual due to them being internal or because of adrenaline masking injuries. Secondly, the emergency triage and subsequent formal medical treatment process provide documentation of physical outcomes that is legally significant. In fact, failing to seek medical care immediately following an accident doesn’t look good if a recovery is ultimately pursued.
A few examples of what can be pursued in your Redlands case with Peach & Weathers include:
Beyond these various types of injuries, a plaintiff might pursue punitive damages when the other motorist/motorcyclist’s negligence or error falls beyond the realm of typical negligence or involves some illicit activity. Also, damages against one’s property (typically a vehicle) can be pursued.
Life after a motorcycle collision can be very challenging. Job loss, permanent injury, medical bills, living without transportation, and dealing with memories of a harrowing incident are just a few of the worries that victims face.
