Q:
What if I cannot remember what happened during and after my Vancouver motorcycle crash?

A:

You need clarity on what caused your Vancouver motorcycle crash, so you can obtain proper compensation and justice. Unfortunately, you do not remember what happened or why. Following are four strategies for dealing with this problem:

 

  1. Stop wrestling with this stuff by yourself. You are not a motorcycle accident attorney. Even if you were, no good injury lawyer would take his own case! You are too confused, injured, and otherwise compromised to think clearly. Recognize that you lack the education to strategize effectively, and get help, as soon as possible.
  2. Realize that there are often many roads to victory in motorcycle accident cases. For instance, your testimony might be excluded because of your brain injury. However, a witness may have seen what happened, and her testimony can help you. Perhaps a traffic camera captured the crash on film. Maybe the forensic evidence can speak for itself. Do not dismiss your chances before talking with a good attorney!
  3. Make the most of your hazy, disjointed memories by writing down your thoughts and recollections right away. You might be surprised at how helpful this exercise can be. For instance, you may jot down a vague, random memory of the crash. This note may spark an epiphany in your attorney, who can then call in a special investigator to identify crucial forensic evidence that helps you win your case. Start by getting something down on paper. Don’t worry if you make sense or not. Don’t worry about rambling. Just start recording, and let your attorney sort the wheat from the chaff.
