What You Should Do After a Motorcycle Accident

There are several important steps to take in the time immediately following a motorcycle accident. Taking these steps will have a positive impact on the outcome of your claim and your ability to recover full financial compensation for the injuries you have experienced and the damage your bike has sustained.

  • Remain at the scene – not only is it the law that you must remain at the scene of an accident you are involved in (even if you did not caused the accident), but this is your opportunity to get the information of the other driver or drivers involved for your insurance claim.
  • Report the incident to law enforcement.
  • If possible, take pictures at the scene and get the contact information of any witnesses who observed what occurred; they may be able to help support your side of the story and the other party’s responsibility for causing the accident.
  • Report the incident to your insurance company.
  • Refrain from discussing the cause of the accident with the other driver’s insurance company or law enforcement to avoid saying or doing something that would indicate you should be held liable.
  • Seek medical attention.
