After a Motorcycle Accident

Steps to Take Following an Accident

If you have a motorcycle accident that involves another vehicle there are several important things that should be done. The first is to call the police (911) for help and emergency medical care for you and any others who are injured. Because every motorcyclist is more exposed to the elements they are much more likely to be seriously injured in a highway accident. As with any type of accident, gather as much information as possible on the other vehicles and drivers involved and be careful what you say to others at the scene. It is best to speak only to the police, your insurance company and your own attorney about what happened.
