If you were involved in an accident as a passenger on a motorcycle, your health is your first priority. Then, you must take immediate action to ensure that your rights are protected and you may be compensated for imminent and future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Injuries to passengers on motorcycles can be devastating and even life-threatening. It’s important to call 911 and accept any and all medical attention, as the shock and adrenaline rush of an accident can effectively mask the pain of certain types of injuries. Internal bleeding is not always apparent by pain, and some traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) may not produce symptoms for days or even weeks following the accident.

Accepting immediate medical attention is also important because its documentation will prevent the insurance company from falsely alleging that your injuries were caused by something other than the accident in question. Never provide a statement to an insurance investigator, even if one shows up at your front door or hospital bedside until you’ve spoken with an attorney.

Time is often critical in these cases, so it’s imperative to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
