Riding a motorcycle carries with it a higher burden of responsibility than for most drivers on the roads. You are not encased in a steel frame and you do not have the added protection of seatbelts and airbags. Riders must exercise extra caution as they are more vulnerable to more serious and different types of personal injuries. For this reason it is also important to know what to do after you have been in an accident. If you have been in a motorcycle accident in Ottawa, you should seek medical attention and consult an Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer to ensure you are taken care of in any pending settlements.
Motorcycle injuries can often be very serious. Some injuries, while still serious, may not be as easy to spot as fractured bones or severe cuts or lacerations. Muscle, tendon and nerve injuries can often take days or even weeks to present any symptoms. Concussions are also known to not show symptoms in the early stages after a motorcycle accident. Nevertheless, all these injuries can have tragic effects on your ability to work and live for many years down the road. Seek medical help and have a thorough post- accident examination immediately. The sooner injuries are discovered and treated, the sooner you are can be on the road to recovery.
