You didn’t cause your motorcycle accident on Fond du Lac Freeway in Milwaukee. That responsibility belongs to the distracted driver who claims that he didn’t see your bike and crashed into you. Yet as you recover from your own injuries, you can’t help but feel bad for the passenger who was on our bike.

You Couldn’t Prevent the Accident, But You Can Help Now

If your passenger as injured in the Fond du Lac Freeway motorcycle crash, then the first thing that you need to do is to let go of any guilt. You need to remember that you did not hurt your friend or relative. You are not responsible for her pain and suffering. You have nothing to feel guilty about.

However, you may be able to make her recovery period easier by:

  • Providing her, or her lawyer, with reasonable information needed to make a claim.
  • Making sure she can get to her medical appointments.
  • Providing help around the house, or with her other responsibilities, if she needs it.
  • Assuring her that you support any legal action that she takes and that it will not affect your relationship.

Let her know that you are on her side.

You Can Also Help Her Understand Her Legal Rights

This may be the first time that your passenger was involved in a serious motorcycle accident. Whether or not she is a rider herself, it is important that she understands her rights so that she can make informed decisions about her future.

You can help provide her with the information that she needs by sharing this library article with her, by requesting a copy of our FREE book, The Ultimate Guide for Motorcycle Accident Victims, for her, and by encouraging her to visit our website to watch our free videos.

As you protect your passenger, we also encourage you to protect yourself. Your own recovery is also important. Please contact us today if we can be of assistance to you.
