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: HOW CAN I PROTECT MYSELF AFTER A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT?

If you are wondering what to do after a motorcycle accident, we encourage you to get in touch with us first. We will personally guide you through the steps that you can take to protect yourself and ensure that your right to pursue compensation is not compromised.

Motorcycle accidents, though not necessarily more frequent than other types of accidents, are more likely to result in serious injury. Motorcycles lack any sort of surrounding protective structure such as air bags, which makes bikers more prone to suffer severe or fatal injuries when they are involved in a collision. Motorcycle accidents can result in brain injuries, broken bones, or even death. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2015, 4,976 people died in motorcycle crashes in the United States. In addition, 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in 2015 as well. Motorcyclists are, on average, 27 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled, and are over five times as likely to be injured.

These some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents are as follows:

Unsafe lane changes – Because motorcycles are smaller, they can be difficult to see. When other drivers fail to see a motorcycle, either because of blind spots or failure to lookout, accidents can easily occur. It is the responsibility of all motor vehicle operators to watch the road properly and be aware of other drivers, including motorcyclists.

Speeding.  Speeding is a leading cause of all types of motor vehicle accidents. Speeding reduces a driver’s chance of seeing and reacting to other drivers in time to prevent a collision. The greater the speed, the greater the impact, and the more severe the consequences are.

Driving under the influence. Driving while impaired by alcohol or drug use is a concern in any type of motor vehicle. However, motorcycles require a high level of concentration to maneuver and drive properly, and impairment can cause devastating accidents.

Texting drivers not seeing motorcycles. The National Safety Council reports that cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year. Nearly 330,000 injuries occur each year from accidents caused by texting while driving. 1 out of every 4 car accidents in the United States is caused by texting and driving.

Sudden stops. A motorcycle rear-end accident can often be deadly. Sudden stops can cause the bike to flip end-over-end, throwing the rider off the bike and resulting in serious injury.

Left turn accidents. 40 percent of all motorcycle collisions that occur in the United States are the result of a driver turning left in front of a motorcyclist who has the right of way. A car fails to see a motorcycle or judges the speed incorrectly, and turns in front of the motorcyclist at an intersection.

Dangerous road conditions. Crumbling or uneven pavement, potholes, and debris, can all increase a motorcycle rider’s chances of losing control of his or her vehicle.

Motorcyclists face far greater risk for fatal or serious accidents on the road.  Motorcycle riders can increase safety by being aware of the common causes of accidents and taking steps to reduce or avoid risks. If you or someone you know is injured because of a motorcycle accident, we encourage you to contact Proner & Proner law offices to discuss your potential case. You may be entitled to compensation for your past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and more.

What not to do after a motorcycle accident

The wrong move can make it extremely difficult to get the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies are looking for opportunities to limit or deny you compensation. We encourage you not to give them any.

  • Do not make a statement to or sign anything given to you by an insurance agent. Do not even talk to an insurance agent. When you discuss the accident to the police, be very straightforward and limit your discussion to the facts.
  • Do not apologize to or argue with the other driver. Limit your discussion with the other driver to an exchange of information. Do not sign anything.
  • Do not get your bike repaired. Doing so before an attorney has had a chance to have the bike properly inspected and photographed is essentially erasing one of the most important pieces of evidence in your case.
