SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION
Injuries are common with motorcycle accidents, go to the hospital immediately after being involved in an accident. Doctors and medical staff will record your injuries and can verify that your injuries were a result of the accident, which will help you receive proper compensation.
REPORT THE ACCIDENT TO AUTHORITIES
Motorcycle accidents involve public safety. After being involved in a collision, report the accident by calling the police or highway patrol. Also call and let your insurance company know that you were involved in a accident.
EXCHANGE INFORMATION WITH OTHER DRIVERS
Record the other motorist's information, such as their phone number, address, license, car description, and insurance information. This information is necessary to file for compensation.
After you are involved in an accident, record as much evidence as possible. Collecting evidence while on the scene will help you prove that the other motorist is liable and increase your compensation.
Take pictures of all the vehicles involved before removing them from the road. Take pictures of the damage to all the vehicles and the roadway, including skid marks, parts of vehicles, and injuries.
Document the weather, broken guardrails, damage to the roadway, missing signs, or any other obstacles in the road. Your attorney will use this evidence to build a strong case to maximize your compensation.
