You know that you didn’t cause the motorcycle accident that resulted in your injuries. Unlike the end of a friendship or romantic relationship, when you might say, “No, really, it’s me—not you,” the opposite is true here. It was truly the other driver and not you who caused your accident, but you are left with the physical, emotional and financial injuries. What can you do?
Know How to Protect Yourself
Even though you didn’t cause your accident injuries, you are going to have to be proactive about protecting your recovery. You can protect yourself by:
- Getting immediate and ongoing medical help as necessary to treat your injuries.
- Following your doctors’ orders. This includes not returning to work or your regular daily activities until you have medical clearance.
- Watching what you say to an insurance adjuster. The insurance adjuster is not on your side. Instead, the adjuster’s job is to pay you as little as possible for your accident injuries.
- Understanding your legal rights. An experienced Illinois motorcycle accident lawyer can help you understand and protect your rights.
It is also important to remember that the actions you take now can have a profound effect on your future.
