Filing A Claim After A Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle Accident Attorneys have expert advice on what to do immediately after an accident. If all goes well, careful attention to the road and other road users will keep you safe. No matter what, accidents can still happen due to other peoples’ negligence.

If you were injured, a motorcycle accident attorney might become an important ally, especially if there is any doubt about who was at fault or your injuries are serious. To make pressing a claim for damages a little easier, keep these tips in mind:

1. Never sign anything from the other party’s insurance company until you have consulted with an attorney. You could easily sign away your right to all or some damages without realizing it.

2. Take notes and pictures. As soon as possible after the crash, take notes on what happened, the weather, the road, the behavior of the other driver. Take a photo or two if you have a camera phone handy. Memories fade or change over time, but written notes and photographs will still be there.

3. Contact your insurance company just after contacting an attorney. Your claim could be denied if you wait too long.

4. Talk to the police with some care. Do not admit liability or fault in the accident. Get a business card from the officer who writes the report. Later, request copies of all written reports that pertain to the accident. You will also need to incident number for the accident.

Those action steps can both protect your rights and increase the odds of recovering damages from the other party’s insurance company, if they were wholly at fault in the accident.
