Motorcycle Accident - What to do
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you should:
- Say nothing, or as little as possible about the accident.
- Preserve any and all evidence and information that you can while the memory is still fresh.
- Take care of any injuries that require medical attention immediately.
- Call the police to report the accident.
- Notify your insurance company.
- Contact an attorney.
The negligence of another driver that contributed fully or partially to the motorcycle accident allows compensation to be awarded. Depending on the severity and impact of the motorcycle accident, medical bills, lost wages, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and a loss of life enjoyment can be claimed.
Your motorcycle accident lawyer will then begin to investigate the accident in order to prove liability if the case presented appears to be strong. Despite safety precautions you may have taken to avoid a motorcycle accident, drivers cannot always avoid the negligence of others.The attorneys at Cycle Justice understand that it is often a challenge to combat prejudices that many people have against motorcyclists when an accident occurs.
