What To Do After a Motorcycle Accident
After a motorcycle accident, it’s important that you stay calm and follow this procedure. Once you’ve checked everyone for injuries, call 911. In some states, you are legally required to call the police even if it’s a minor fender-bender. The police officers will document the scene and fill out an accident report. This report will help you with your claims process so make sure you obtain a case ID from the police officer evaluating the scene.
In order to gather full information about the accident, it’s important that you yourself also document the damage done to both vehicles, preferably by taking pictures of both vehicles and the accident scene. Exchange information with the other driver, such as full name and contact information, insurance company and policy number, driver’s license number, license plate number, and the type of vehicle’s involved in the accident.
If the authorities do not arrive at the scene, it is even more imperative that you obtain as much information at the scene as you can in order to avoid any issues with filing your claim.
