Getting into an accident while riding a motorcycle can be a very traumatic experience. First and foremost, the most important thing is the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved in the accident. Once it is established that those who have been injured are under the proper care, there are some key steps that you must take:
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important to contact the police immediately. Doing so will help document what happened, why it happened, how it happened, and which parties are at fault. It will also allow for an immediate investigation of the scene while the evidence is still available.
As soon as all of the people who are injured receive medical care and information is gathered from all involved parties and witnesses, you should contact an attorney who is experienced in handling personal injury matters. We will always meet with you right away for a free consultation, so you can get your questions answered and get immediate legal assistance. If you decide to retain our services, we will have an investigator conduct a thorough investigation of the accident, so that no evidence goes undetected or is lost.
The above is not legal advice. That can only come from a qualified attorney who is familiar with all facts and circumstances of a particular, specific case and the relevant law.
