Why dooring accidents are so devastating
Dooring accidents involving motorcycles can be caused by drivers or passengers who open their doors without regard for oncoming traffic. These crashes can happen on narrow residential streets or streets with heavy traffic. Since dooring accidents happen quickly, they can be hard to anticipate, thus causing a motorcycle crash at full speed. With little room to swerve out of the way, dooring accidents are often a recipe for disaster.
Motorcyclists can often sustain serious and life-threatening injuries from dooring accidents. They include, but are not limited to:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spine injuries
- Cuts, bruises and contusions
Why trust us?
In the event of a dooring accident, the last thing you want to do is deal with the negligent party's insurance company. Their only interest in mind is reducing their own costs. Anything you say to them can later be used to downplay or deny your claim.
If the negligence of a driver or passenger caused your dooring accident, you should take your claim seriously from the start. If you're able to, speak to witnesses and obtain a police report. Most importantly, you should always seek medical attention. Even if you seem fine after the accident, injury symptoms can appear hours or days later.
Don't be overwhelmed by the negligent party's insurance company. The experienced attorneys at Pajcic & Pajcic will take care of it. We'll fight to maximize your compensation, and if the insurance company refuses to pay, we'll be ready to take your case to trial.
