What to do Following a Motorcycle Accident

Kingston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

The moments following a motorcycle accident can be, without a doubt, some of the most frightening you will ever face. However, in the midst of it all, keeping a clear head and knowing what to do can play a significant role in your ability to collect proper compensation.

On the Scene of the Accident

If you are able, call 911 right away. Even if your accident seems minor, you will want police reports and EMT evaluations before you leave the scene. Try to collect the name and contact information of any witnesses to the accident. Also gather the vehicle information, name, contact and insurance information of all other involved motorists.

Take pictures of your accident from multiple angles while waiting for emergency services. Try to include as much of the surrounding environment as possible. This will be valuable to your accident attorney. You may also wish to contact your own insurance company at this point to allow them to send an adjustor to document the scene.

When police and EMTs arrive, cooperate, but do not admit fault. Get the badge number and business card of any officers you speak to.

Following Your Motorcycle Accident

Get in to see your doctor as soon as possible after your accident. Your doctor will be able to perform a more thorough examination to determine if you have sustained any serious injuries.

You should also contact motorcycle accident attorney Charles Rock as soon as possible. Attorney Rock will begin an investigation into your accident to determine where fault should lie and work to build a strong case on your behalf. Do not accept a settlement from insurance. Only an accident attorney can do what’s necessary to get you every penny you deserve.
