What to do after a Motorcycle Accident
What happens immediately following a motorcycle accident can affect what kind of compensation you may be eligible to receive. If you are able, the best possible course of action following a motorcycle collision is to:
- Remain at the scene of the accident. Leaving the scene of an accident, even if you were not at fault, may lead to charges.
- Contact police.
- Leave injured people where they are unless life-threatening risks like fire or oncoming traffic require them to be moved to safety.
- Seek medical attention. Not all injuries are immediately recognizable after a collision, and only qualified medical personnel can make the determination as to whether you and other accident victims are alright.
- Collect pertinent information from other drivers (and witnesses, if possible), including:
- Their names
- Phone numbers
- License plate numbers
- Vehicle information
- Insurance information
After a motorcycle accident, do not delay in contacting an attorney. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer may be able to help you recover some of the damages associated with the accident, including medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering.
