What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

In an ideal world, there would be no motorcycle accidents at all. Unfortunately, crashes happen, so it’s important to be prepared no matter which party is at fault. There are a few steps everyone should take after experiencing a motorcycle accident, starting in the immediate aftermath. It’s just as important to seek assistance from a Florida motorcycle injury lawyer.

Right After a Crash
How you conduct yourself immediately after a motorcycle accident in Florida will often determine what happens next, including the compensation you are eligible to receive. As such, it’s important not to leave the scene of the crash. Make sure everyone is safe, and then seek appropriate medical attention for all parties, even if it appears no one has been severely injured. Dial 911, no matter how minor your injuries may appear.

Never, ever admit fault, apologize, or argue with other drivers about who caused the accident. Contact your local police department to report the incident and take photos of the damage to yourself and your vehicle. Don’t forget to include photos of license plates, and even the vicinity in which the incident occurred.

Even if you think you can handle the aftermath by yourself, it’s important to have a Florida motorcycle injury lawyer like Brad Sinclair of Sinclair Law on your side. Brad Sinclair is a biker himself, and he knows how critical it is to be adept at dealing with insurance companies and protecting the right to compensation for all motorcycle crash victims.
