The first thing that you should do is to get medical attention. If you came into contact with the hot engine of your motorcycle, if a fire started when a car collided with your bike, or if you were otherwise burned in a motorcycle crash, then you need an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

And you need them both as soon as possible.

The Risks of Delaying Medical Care

If you delay medical attention then you risk:

  • Continued pain.
  • Infection.
  • Complications from the initial injury.
  • Psychological harm.
  • Permanent disability.

There is no benefit to delaying medical treatment after a motorcycle accident burn.

You Have Treatment Options

Treatment for your burn is going to depend on whether you are diagnosed with a first degree, second degree, or third degree burn. Treatment options may include:

  • Skin grafts.
  • Pain medications.
  • IV treatments.
  • Antibiotics.
  • Physical therapy.

Each individual burn victim requires individualized treatment. Accordingly, it is important to consult with a doctor who can diagnose and treatment your burn injuries promptly so that you can recover to the maximum medical extent possible.

Don’t Neglect Your Other Needs

Controlling your pain and preventing further medical complications should be your primary concerns. However, it is possible to protect your health and your financial interests at the same time. An experienced lawyer can investigate the motorcycle accident that resulted in your injuries and help you recover damages from the person whose negligence caused the crash.
