What Do I Do After a Motorcycle Accident?

Motorcycle Accident

Simply- what you do after a motorcycle accident can have a significant impact on your ability to maximize the compensation you receive for your injuries.

What you should do to protect your interests after a Motorcycle Accident

The most important thing to do when you sustain a motorcycle accident injury is to seek medical attention. There is nothing more important than your health and well-being.  Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, road rash, and disfigurement and amputations are common injuries in motorcycle accidents. It is important to have any injuries documented by the emergency room or hospital staff. If possible, have them document that the injuries were caused by a motorcycle accident.

Be careful what you say to the police.

So many times, the cause of a motorcycle accident is unclear right after the accident. Motorcycle accidents are usually jarring and remembering exactly what happened may not occur until hours or even days after the accident. Does that matter? Yes.

Insurance companies comb police reports for any evidence that the rider may have caused the accident. Statements made just after you are injured can be confused and inaccurate. Nonetheless insurance companies can use them to minimize your recovery during settlement negotiations or at trial.

Be careful what you tell your insurance company

It is sad to say, but many times, insurance companies don’t have your best interests at heart. They make settlement offers based on formulas, not on the individual circumstances. And they understand that there is a prejudice against motorcycle riders. Motorcycle accident attorneys understand how specific actions can help or hurt, jury verdicts and insurance claim settlements.
