What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

After a motorcycle accident, it is important to take the proper steps to protect your health and your legal rights. If you are able to do so, there are several things you should do at the scene of the accident to help build a strong case.

After a motorcycle accident, you should:

  • Call 911: If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you should call 911 right away. The police will come to the scene of the accident and create an accident report. This report can be used as evidence in your case.
  • Seek medical attention: Even if you do not think you have been seriously injured, you should still seek medical attention after a motorcycle accident. Some injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and internal bleeding, may not be immediately apparent. A doctor can evaluate your condition and create a record of your injuries.
  • Take pictures: If you can, take pictures of the accident scene, your injuries, and any damage to your motorcycle. These pictures can be used as evidence in your case.
  • Get contact information: You should get the names, phone numbers, and addresses of all parties involved in the accident, as well as any witnesses. This information can be used to contact these individuals and gather evidence.
  • Do not admit fault: After a motorcycle accident, you should not admit fault to anyone. Even if you think you may have been partially to blame for the accident, you should not say so. You may not know all of the factors that contributed to the accident.
  • Do not give a recorded statement: After a motorcycle accident, you may be contacted by the other party’s insurance company and asked to give a recorded statement. You should not do this. The insurance company may try to use your statement against you and reduce the amount of compensation you are owed.
  • Hire a motorcycle accident attorney: Motorcycle accident cases can be complex. An experienced attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options and guide you through the process. They can also handle all of the legal aspects of your case, so you can focus on your recovery.

How Our Bakersfield Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Can Help

Motorcycle accident cases can be complex. To recover full and fair compensation, you will need to prove that the other party was at fault for the accident and that their negligence caused or contributed to your injuries. This can be complex, especially if the case involves multiple defendants. Our Bakersfield motorcycle accident attorneys can help you gather the evidence you need to build a strong case.

Our attorneys can help you gather evidence such as:

  • Accident reports
  • Witness statements
  • Video surveillance footage
  • Medical records
  • Expert testimony

We can also help you calculate the full extent of your damages, including your current and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more. Our attorneys can aggressively negotiate a settlement with the insurance company on your behalf. If the terms of the settlement are not agreeable, we will file a lawsuit and fight for the maximum compensation you are owed. 

Make no mistake, our firm is not looking for a quick settlement. We are experienced litigators who prepare every case as if it is going to trial. But do not take our work for it, check out our results in the courtroom for yourself.
