Motorcycle Accident Injuries in Cary
Trust Our Experienced Attorneys To Help You Through This Difficult Time
Riding a motorcycle can be a freeing and affordable method of transportation, but when things go wrong on a bike, the repercussions can be life-altering. Bikes offer less protection in an accident than other motor vehicles, which leaves the rider more susceptible to serious, life-threatening injuries, even in a minor accident. That said, if a motorcycle crash is caused by some act of negligence or mistake, like a defective wheel or a drunk driver, the injured party has a right to take legal action.

Types of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles share a common weakness; they’re less visible to passenger vehicles, and they offer less stability than their 4-wheeled counterparts. That said, if another driver fails to spot a nearby motorcycle rider and they cut into their lane, swipe them, or otherwise intercept them, they can cause the rider to lose control and slide, roll, or become crushed beneath their bike. Likewise, dangerous roadside debris, or mechanical defects can endanger the motorcyclist and cause them to crash.
Many motorcycle accidents are caused by the following:
- Road hazards
- Mechanical defects
- Defective wheels
- Brake failure
- Collisions with a fixed object
- Lane changing
- Reckless driving
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
Any of these dangerous issues could cause serious, if not deadly, injuries. Common motorcycle accident injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, broken bones, burns, road rash, lacerations, contusions, and muscle damage. If you suffered any of these injuries in a motorcycle crash caused by someone else’s carelessness, our firm wants to hear from you.
What Should I Do After a Motorcycle Crash?
After an accident, the most important thing you can do is call 911, or ask someone nearby to call for medical attention. If you were injured, even if your injuries don’t seem serious to you, you need a professional. Some injuries, like whiplash or brain injuries, might remain dormant because of the adrenaline you experience from the shock of the crash, so seeing a medical professional is absolutely crucial.
Once you’ve received medical attention, your next order of business should be to gather evidence by collecting a copy of the accident report and exchanging information with the other drivers on the scene. Gather their contact information, the name of their insurance provider, and take pictures of the crash. Be sure to pay special attention to the damaged vehicles, any damage to the crash site, and anything else that might help point to the cause of the crash. If there were any witnesses, collect a short statement from them as well, and write down their name and information.
Now that you’ve left the scene of the crash, you should contact your attorney to discuss the details of your motorcycle accident while everything is still fresh. Write everything down that you can remember, make a folder with all of the evidence you’ve gathered so far, including copies of any medical treatment you’ve received.
