Motorcycle Accidents


Committed to Helping Motorcycle Accident Victims Receive the Compensation They Deserve

Traveling by motorcycle can be an exhilarating way to explore the beautiful roadways throughout the Pacific Northwest. Whether you use your motorcycle regularly or you only take it out on the road from time to time, there’s no denying that motorcycle travel is a great way to nurture an adventurous spirit. However, the open air on the back of a motorcycle makes you more vulnerable to severe and even catastrophic injuries when an accident occurs. Motorcycle accident victims often suffer serious physical injuries that take weeks or months to heal. In fact, some injuries may cause permanent damage, forever impacting your mobility or cognitive function. Medical bills can start to pile up, leading to considerable stress and concern about your future. If you have suffered an injury in a motorcycle accident and you need help collecting the compensation you need to support your recovery, the dedicated and caring personal injury lawyers at Henderson Taylor Law Firm PLLC are ready to assist you. Together, we will assess the details of your case to determine the most strategic path forward to secure you the compensation you’re owed.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident in Vancouver or Portland

Motorcycle accidents can be chaotic and disorienting for all parties involved in the incident. The moment you are involved in an accident, it is essential that you first seek medical attention. The injuries that a motorcyclist receives in an accident can often be severe, so you must obtain the proper care as soon as possible. If you are not certain that your injuries are severe enough to call for an ambulance, you should still visit a doctor within the next few days for a comprehensive medical evaluation. These corresponding medical records can be used when you file your claim, as they will serve as evidence that quantifies the nature and extent to which the other party’s negligent driving behavior has impacted you physically and economically. At the scene, you should also immediately begin documenting all aspects of the incident, including the names of potential witnesses, the insurance information from the other parties involved, and even photos of your injuries or damaged motorcycle. The more information you can gather, the stronger your personal injury case can be. Even if you do not decide to pursue a personal injury claim right away, taking these steps at the scene of the accident ensures that you will have the necessary items in place in the event that you decide to pursue a claim in the future.

Compassionate Legal Support When You Need It Most

Motorcycle accidents can derail your life, especially if the injuries you suffered require intensive medical interventions and a long recovery period. As you cope with your painful physical injuries, it’s also important to make space for your emotional and mental recovery. Many motorcycle accident victims develop symptoms of depression, anxiety, or even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after experiencing such a traumatic event. If you experience symptoms like insomnia, racing thoughts, panic attacks, or other worrisome issues, consider working with a mental health therapist during this challenging time. Psychological and emotional symptoms may hinder your physical recovery, so it’s essential to seek out treatment for these concerns as well. Remember, you do not have to go through this difficult period alone—rely on your loved ones to reassure and support you as you start to piece your life back together. Additionally, the trusted and empathetic personal injury attorneys at Henderson Taylor Law Firm PLLC are ready to provide you with the compassionate and reliable legal guidance you need to recover the compensation you’re owed.
