12 Aug WHAT SHOULD YOU DO AFTER A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT?
“What to do after a motorcycle accident?”
Hopefully, you will never need to ask yourself that question, but if you do, we want to make you aware of some basic steps to take in the aftermath of an accident.
Over 40 percent of motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle turning left into a motorcycle going straight. This is an obvious example where the motorcyclist is not at fault and, therefore, deserving of indemnification after a dangerous situation.
What do you do after an accident like this? You should take these specific steps after you’ve gotten off the accident scene and to a safe location:
- Assess For Injuries And Seek Medical Care
- Collect Personal And Insurance Information
- Contact The Police
- Take Note Of Your Surroundings
- Call A Motorcycle Accident Attorney
- Notify Your Insurance Carrier
Once you’ve had a chance to regain composure and recover from the shock of the accident, you may want to seek the services of a motorcycle accident attorney. This could have a major impact on the outcome of the case. You should not go about this alone without guidance.
Motorcycle accidents are a profoundly serious matter in the U.S., where motorcycle riders are 28 times more likely to die in a traffic crash even though they encompass a small portion of overall collisions.
