WHAT TO DO IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT
Make sure everyone is okay. Check on everyone involved in the accident. If possible, apply first aid to those who have been injured.
Move away from the road. Get to a safe location, but stay at the motorcycle accident scene. Use hazard lights or flares to alert oncoming traffic and prevent further collisions.
Call 911. Unless nobody is hurt and nothing is damaged, get the police and an ambulance on the scene as soon as possible. The ambulance will bring immediate medical attention to those who are hurt. The police will fill out an accident report that may prove critical later. Answer questions truthfully when officers arrive — but do not make any admission of guilt.
Get medical attention. The sooner you can get treated, the sooner you can get better, which is ultimately the most important thing. With adrenaline flowing, you may not think you are injured. That might not be the case. Do not refuse treatment.
Doctor’s Orders: Follow your doctor’s advice as closely as you can, to demonstrate that you are making a good faith effort to recover from any injuries that you sustained. Also, do not leave out any complaint that you have when you talk to a doctor. Even minor aches and pains can develop into debilitating, chronic conditions. It is important to get those complaints documented as soon after a motorcycle accident as possible.
Gather information. Get names, addresses, phone numbers and license numbers from the other driver and witnesses. Get the other driver’s insurance information. If possible, take photographs of the motorcycle accident scene and injuries.
Contact a lawyer. The motorcycle crash attorneys of Proner & Proner offer free initial consultations and respond quickly to accidents throughout the country. We take fast action to protect your rights and start pursuing the compensation you need.
FAQ: WHO WAS AT FAULT?
Our lawyers frequently field questions from bikers who are not certain whether the other driver was at fault or not. We are happy to answer these questions and to take action against the other driver if he or she was at fault.
The answer to this question may depend on the state where the accident took place. For example, one of the most common motorcycle accident scenarios involves a car pulling over to the right side of the road as if about to take a right turn. A motorcycle rider begins to pass the car on the left, only to be hit by the car when the car veers back into the lane and continues driving forward. In most states, it is illegal for two vehicles to share the same lane. When the biker drove forward, both drivers may have been breaking this law, meaning both are partially at fault. So who is to blame? Perhaps both drivers. In some states, there is a comparative negligence rule. The question needs to be asked, how much was each party at fault? Perhaps the driver of the car was more at fault, and thus would be liable. Perhaps not.
We carefully review every case to determine and prove fault, building a strategy designed to maximize compensation for the victim of motorcycle injuries.
