Motorcycle accidents tend to be quite different from most other vehicular accidents. The small size of motorcycles and the exposure of riders produce different physics in an accident. Due to the lack of protection during impact, the potential for serious injury in a motorcycle accident is high. You do not have the metal frame or airbags to take some of the impact like you would in a car accident.

If you or a family member were injured in an auto/truck/motorcycle accident, then you should take the necessary steps to seek medical attention and protect your legal rights to compensation.

Check for injuries – Your first priority is your health and the health of those around you. If you are able to, then check for injuries and call an ambulance if needed. You should also move out of the way of any traffic if you are not badly injured. If you are hurt, then you should stay put until emergency responders arrive at the scene.

Call the police – Under Florida law, you must call the police to the scene of an accident that involves personal injury or serious property damage. They will fill out a police report that will be important in your case.

Gather evidence – If you are not too badly injured, then gather evidence by taking photos of the vehicles involved, the road, injuries, and anything else that could be relevant to your case.

Contact information – If you are able to, collect the contact information of the police at the scene, any witnesses, and the other drivers, including their names, phone numbers, vehicle registration numbers, and insurance information.

Seek medical treatment – If you did not receive immediate medical attention, then you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Some injuries may not show up right away, and it is important that you don’t do anything to make your injuries worse.

Seek a free consultation with a reputable law firm – It is important that you seek legal counsel with an experienced accident lawyer, even if you think you could be at fault for the accident. You may not have all of the information right away, and the other driver may also have contributed to the crash. At the very least, seek a free consultation so that you can advise you on your next steps.

Speak to your insurance company – Most insurance companies require you to inform them of an accident within 24 hours. Be careful about what you say and stick to the facts without admitting fault. Insurance companies will look for ways to devalue your claim, and it is important that you don’t give them any ammunition to do so.
