What You Should Do After A Motorcycle Accident

A motorcycle accident can happen quickly, and you may be significantly disoriented after it occurs. The first and most important priority in any accident is always safety and attending to your health and wellbeing. If the scene where the accident occurred is unsafe, seek out a protected location. Once you are in a safe place, the next steps you should take are as follows:

  1. Determine Injuries and Seek Medical Help. Following a motorcycle accident or any auto accident, it is urgent that you immediately determine if you or others need medical assistance. If you or others appear to be injured, call 911 at once to request help. Even injuries that may appear minor may need medical care, especially for traumatic head injuries. Without prompt medical treatment, a head injury can become life-threatening.
  2. Collection of Insurance and Personal Information From All Parties Involved. You must gather information from everyone that is involved in the motorcycle accident. Information that you will want to collect includes names, addresses, insurance information, phone numbers, and driver’s license numbers for all involved drivers.
  3. Contact Law Enforcement. After you have assessed your health and gathered all vital information from others involved, contact law enforcement. Having the police on the scene as soon as possible can help create a better legal case. Law enforcement will create reports about the accident that will be key to your case.
  4. Take Notes. Gathering information about the time, location, and surroundings will also be important in building your case. If you have your phone and can safely do so, take photos of the surrounding area where the motorcycle accident occurred. Even minor details may become useful later.
  5. Contact An Expert Motorcycle Accident Lawyer. Calling an experienced attorney with the knowledge and determination to effectively handle your accident case is one of the most important calls that you will make. Seeking competent legal advice is a crucial step to you receiving the compensation and justice that you deserve. You can trust that Bracken Lamberton will thoroughly investigate the accident, gather information, and take the appropriate legal recourse against the negligent parties.
  6. Contact Your Insurance Company. Notifying your insurance company about the motorcycle accident is an important step to recovering damages. However, speak with your attorney first before providing any statement to your insurance carrier. The language you use describing the accident immediately after it has occurred may have implications on your legal case. Our office will be able to help you effectively communicating with the insurance company.

Why Should You File A Motorcycle Accident Claim

When a motorcycle accident occurs, numerous consequences occur, ranging from mental anguish to property damage and serious or permanent injury and even death. These consequences and losses – physical, monetary and psychological – can quickly mount up and become detrimental and harmful to a person trying to recover from a serious and possibly life-changing motorcycle accident. Worrying about paying your bills and covering all the staggering expenses that may result from an accident is not beneficial to the healing process.

Possible expenses that you may experience after having a motorcycle accident include: 

Physical: undergoing treatment for a serious injury that requires long-term care and rehabilitation, paralysis, loss of limbs, disfigurement, and serious brain trauma and injury.

Financial: costs to cover hospital care, other medical bills, medical transportation, motorcycle repairs or replacement, and lost wages.

Psychological: effects of ongoing and possibly long term pain and suffering and the mental anguish that occurs as a result.

A motorcycle accident claim may be an effective way for you to ensure that you are compensated for all of these losses.
