Motorcycle Accident Do’s and Don’ts

Though most bikers don’t head out onto the open roads expecting to get into an accident, it is always smart to be prepared. So our accident lawyer put together some “do’s” and don’ts.”  Just in case you happen to find yourself getting into an accident.

  • The first thing you want to do is check for any injuries. Make sure you are able to move and if there are other party’s involved, make sure everyone is safe. If anyone is injured, call 911 immediately.
  • If possible, move out of the way of other vehicles on the road – this is so there isn’t a back-up of traffic but also to prevent any other accidents. Used hazard lights, flares, or any other kind of warnings to alert traffic.
  • Exchange information with any other party’s involved. Get any names, addresses, phone numbers, insurance information, etc. from all party’s. Also make sure to note any plate numbers, car make and model.
  • If anyone is seriously injured, call the police. Filing a police report at the scene will be vital in the efforts to recover any damages to your bike, clothing, or even injuries sustained.
  • Try to remember specifics of the accident. This may be difficult to do right after an accident, but if you can, try to recall when, where, how, etc. Since memories fade, especially during times of stress, gather as much information as you can immediately following the crash.
  • Don’t admit fault. This is very important! Most of the time, it is unclear what the cause of the accident was. That is why it is crucial to contact the police – after the police have gathered the statements of all party’s involved – that is when “fault” can be determined.

Each step can be difficult to remember after an accident, especially if you have been injured – just remember that the most important thing is to make sure you are okay and to seek medical attention if you need.
