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: WHAT HAPPENS IF A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT IS CAUSED BY AN ANIMAL?
We pride ourselves on examining every motorcycle collision case from every angle to determine any possible routes of recovery. Our accident lawyers are happy to review cases involving bikers colliding with animals, because we realize these often result in serious injury or wrongful death. However, these can be extremely challenging cases.
If the accident involves a motorcycle rider hitting a deer, it is unlikely that there is anyone to take action against. The government is not responsible for controlling deer populations.
If the accident involves a motorcycle rider hitting a dog or being knocked off the bike by the dog, there may be an opportunity for compensation. Many states have leash laws that specifically requires dogs to be leashed and kept out of the road. If a dog is not on a leash and runs into the road, causing an accident, the dog owner could be held accountable.
If the accident involves a motorcycle rider colliding with livestock, there may be avenues for compensation. The owners of the livestock may be obligated to keep the livestock from straying onto a road or highway. If they failed to fulfill that obligation, they could be held accountable for the harm caused by their animal.
First of all ride like your invisible. You might think that the driver the car sees you but oftentimes they make that left turn right into your path. If you ride assuming that they can’t see because you’re invisible, you tend to take more protective action to avoid collisions. So protect your own skin.
When you get to an intersection and you see that car signaling for the left turn, slow down, take your hands off the throttle, make sure your foot is over the brake, and be prepared to make an emergency stop. Same thing when you see a car approaching a stop sign at an intersection where you don’t have the stop sign. The fact that you had the right-of-way will help you in a lawsuit but it’s not going to help you heal any faster from your hospital bed.
Another consideration take is to practice your emergency stop. Make sure you know where the horn is on your left thumb. Make sure you use both brakes when you stop. Riders that use too much rear brake are losing 70% of the stopping power that the front brake provides.
Before you go out, make sure all your lights and directional signals are working. Make sure your tires have good tread. Make sure your brakes provide good stopping and are not “spongy”.
If you do find you’ve been in an accident, go to get hospital to check out all of your body. The adrenaline that might be pumping after motorcycle accident could mask some of your injuries. After you stop at the hospital get in touch with an experienced attorney. If you would like a free consultation with us we are always available.
