A motorcycle accident claim can be hard to prove since the other person’s insurance company usually states that their driver was not entirely at fault. The other driver may try to say they never saw the motorcycle coming which adds to this denial of fault. It is imperative to follow these three (3) important things to best help your motorcycle accident claim.
- Take evidence from the scene of the accident – If it is possible, make sure to gather the information from the other driver including name, contact information and insurance. Take pictures from the scene of the accident including your property damage and visible injuries. If there were any witnesses in the area, get statements from them as well as their contact information. All of these will be useful to your motorcycle accident lawyer.
- Get medical attention right after – Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries. Even if it does not appear that you were seriously injured, you should still get checked out as some injuries do not manifest until days or even weeks later. This step will also be evidence you can present for your motorcycle accident claim. Give all of the details to your doctor about how you were injured so they can document everything properly.
- Speak with a motorcycle accident lawyer – Especially since these accidents can be difficult to prove, it is to your benefit to contact a motorcycle accident lawyer to assist you. If you follow the above two (2) steps, you will make this a very smooth process for your lawyer. Let them focus on your case while you focus on what is important; your recovery.
