Injured in a motorcycle accident?
Here's What You Need to Know.
Even though the police will document the accident as well, always be sure to take your own pictures.
It's only human to want to apologize, but this may be used against you later on.
You might not feel injured.
Once the adrenaline wears off, you might feel injuries that initially didn't cause any pain. Get checked out by a doctor if you feel any pain or soreness after the fact.
Motorcycles have the same rights as cars and trucks.
Motorcycles are much more vulnerable in collisions and are often the victims of other drivers’ negligence. Injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are often much more severe, leading to greater financial loss, missed work, pain and suffering and emotional trauma.

With high gas mileage and a low cost of entry, motorcycles are a more popular mode of transportation than ever.
Unfortunately, bikers are at an increased risk of serious injury or death in a collision with other vehicles. No matter how much safety gear is worn or how much caution a biker exercises, there’s no way of avoiding the higher risk from being unprotected in a crash. Even the most skilled driver can be taken by surprise when other drivers fail to keep a lookout or make hasty maneuvers.
The Louisiana motorcycle accident lawyers at Rozas Injury Law can help seriously injured drivers get their medical bills paid and receive compensation for their pain and suffering.
Frequently Asked Questions
"The insurance adjuster for the at fault driver is asking for a recorded statement, do I have to do it?"
You are not obligated to give the at-fault driver’s insurance company a recorded statement. If you do voluntarily, the statement could be used against you later. You should never agree to a recorded statement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company without legal representation.
"I did not hurt at first from the wreck but a few days later I am now really in pain, will the insurance company of the at fault driver still pay for my injuries?"
Yes. But it is important to get diagnosed for all of your injuries as soon as possible so that an adequate treatment plan can get you back to pre-accident health. A substantial gap in treatment can be used by the insurance company to try and diminish your injury claim, but at Rozas Law Firm we will work diligently to make sure you are paid the true value of your claim.
"Do you charge for a consultation on my case?"
At Rozas Law Firm, we never charge for a consultation. Most of our cases are handled on contingency fees which means we do not get paid unless we recover money for you. If you think you have a case, call us and let us help you.
