What are the first steps I should take after a motorcycle accident

If you're involved in a motorcycle accident, you must take specific steps to protect your well-being, gather important information, and preserve evidence for any potential insurance claims or legal actions.


How Can I Protect My Claim and My Rights After a Motorcycle Collision?

Here are the steps you should take after a motorcycle accident:

Check for injuries. Your safety and the safety of others involved should be your top priority. Check yourself and others for injuries, and if anyone is seriously injured, call for emergency medical assistance immediately.

Move to safety. If possible, move yourself and your motorcycle to a safe location away from traffic to avoid further accidents or injuries.

Contact the Police. Report the accident to the police and wait for them to arrive at the scene. They will document the details of the accident and create an official accident report, which can be crucial for insurance claims and legal proceedings.

Exchange Information with the other driver. Exchange contact and insurance information with the other parties involved in the accident, including drivers and any witnesses. Collect names, phone numbers, addresses, license plate numbers, and insurance details.

Document the scene. Take photos or videos of the accident scene, the damage to your motorcycle, and any injuries you've sustained. These visuals can serve as valuable evidence later.

Gather witness information. If there were witnesses to the accident, obtain their names and contact information. Witness statements can be crucial in supporting your version of events if there is a dispute.

Do not give a statement. Be cautious about making statements regarding fault or responsibility for the accident. Anything you say may be used against you in any subsequent legal proceedings or insurance claims.

Seek medical attention. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, it's essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent, and a medical evaluation will help document any injuries for insurance purposes.

Report the accident to your insurance company. Notify your insurance company about the accident, providing them with all the relevant details. Be honest and accurate in your account of the events.


Will a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Help Me Obtain a Fair Settlement?

If you suffered significant injuries or there are disputes about fault, consider consulting with a motorcycle accident attorney experienced in motorcycle accidents. They can advise you on your rights, handle communications with insurance companies, and help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries and damages.

The steps you take after a motorcycle crash can have a significant impact on any potential claims or legal actions. Acting quickly and seeking appropriate advice from an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer will help ensure that your rights are protected and that you have the best chance of receiving fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
