What should I do if I have a motorcycle accident?

If you are involved in an accident that was not your fault while riding your motorcycle, you should know that you will be entitled to compensation for the expenses that have arisen. The person who caused the accident will be the one who must pay for this compensation.

Before receiving such compensation, you must file a lawsuit against the other party. However, you should keep in mind the following actions as they will help you prove the negligence of the responsible person. 

After you’ve made caring for your injuries and your overall health your number one priority, some of the actions you can take to gather evidence are:

  1. Call the police so they can provide you with the report you will need to present your case.
  2. Get as much information as you can on both the car (s) involved and their drivers, such as name, telephone, license plate number, model, etc.
  3. If possible, document everything with photographs so that it can be included in your case.
  4. In case there are witnesses near the place, try to obtain their information such as name and telephone number, in case they are required to testify.
  5. Finally, in case your injuries have not been so severe, go anyway to a hospital where you can have a medical evaluation to corroborate the damage and so your reports can also serve as evidence.

Consider filing the complaint immediately, as this will help you avoid issues with statutes of limitations. Your lawsuit would be more valid, and there would be fewer problems regarding the time between the accident and the lawsuit. 

Subsequently, it is recommended that you contact a personal injury attorney so they can help you handle your entire case. Because these are difficult situations, the knowledge of an expert in the field could be of great help when filing a lawsuit.

Finally, when you know the steps to take, your attorney can fight to recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional damages.
