What to do if a negligent driver hits your motorcycle

Motorcycle riders are more susceptible to injuries than other automobile drivers. This is because a person on a motorcycle is completely exposed, with the exception of the head. In case of an accident, motorcycle riders are the ones that may suffer the most. If you have been hurt in an accident while on a motorcycle, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention. Even with a helmet, head injuries are very common in motorbike accidents.

Medical treatment of injuries can be very expensive. If you have been hurt in an accident, you can file a negligence claim against the other driver. If your claim is successful, you will receive compensation for all the expenses you have had to incur.

It is important to consider  four basic elements when filing for a negligence claim.

  • You must prove that the defendant had a legal obligation to exercise care to ensure your safety.
  • You must prove if the defendant violated a law.
  • You must prove that the defendant's actions have caused you the pain and suffering.
  • You must show that you were harmed because of the defendant's actions.

Your case might become stronger if the defendant was intoxicated at the time of the accident. Driving while intoxicated is seen as negligence. All the damages that you have faced need to be shown in court in order to get compensation. The court often provides monetary compensation for property damage and medical expenses. It is advisable that you seek help from an  experienced attorney. An attorney would fight for your rights and ensure that you get fully compensated.
