Injured in a Motorcycle Accident? Here’s What to Do Next.
- Be sure to report the accident to the police and your insurance company. This gets the ball rolling so you have a record of what has happened.
- Get the medical help you need and do it soon. Toughing out the pain, thinking it will go away, will just slow your recovery. If you don’t know who to see, we can recommend some medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and therapists.
- If possible, get someone over to the scene of the accident to take pictures. Evidence disappears quickly, so those first pictures can be important.
- If the police didn’t impound the bike, have someone put it into storage. Get pictures and a good report from a mechanic about damage before anything gets fixed.
Now your job is to get better. Leave the rest to our Tupelo motorcycle accident attorneys.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Many insurance companies do a pretty good job of paying property claims for a damaged or totaled motorcycle. The problem usually comes when the motorcycle crash caused serious injuries or the wrongful death of a biker, or when the at-fault driver is uninsured.
Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries for which you may need compensation include:
- Broken bones
- Crush injuries
- Laceration or abrasions from the road (“road rash”)
- Head injury and/or traumatic brain injuries
- Severe burns
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis

The more serious the injuries, the more medical-related expenses you will likely have, and you should be reimbursed for all of them. You can be reimbursed not only for doctor and therapist visits, medicines, and medical equipment but also for adaptations to your home or your vehicle caused by a disability, travel and parking expenses, and other costs related to your injury. You can also get money for time lost from work, as well as your pain and suffering.
After a motorcycle accident, the expenses can quickly add up—and all your expenses should be covered by the at-fault driver’s insurance company. If you were hit by an uninsured driver and you have uninsured/underinsured coverage, you can also seek compensation through your own insurance coverage
