What should I do after a motorcycle accident?

If you are involved in a motorcycle crash, the first thing you need to do is to make sure that everyone is okay. If someone is injured, you should call 911 immediately. You should also ask police to make an official report of the accident. You also need to be sure that you collect the names, addresses, phone numbers, driver’s license numbers and insurance information for all parties involved the crash. You should also talk with witnesses and collect their contact information because we may need to contact them in the future. If you have access to a cell phone or camera, take pictures of the damages to your bike and all other vehicles along with the road conditions and traffic signs and signals at the crash site.

Should I contact an attorney if I have been injured in a motorcycle crash?

One of the most important things you should do after a motorcycle crash is to contact a motorcycle personal injury attorney experienced in handling motorcycle accident claims. While your first thought may be to contact your insurance company to report the accident, you should always speak with a qualified motorcycle accident lawyer first before contacting any insurance carrier. Your motorcycle injury lawyer will explain how the claims process works and will protect you from saying anything that might hurt your claim. Your lawyer will also evaluate your case and discuss all legal avenues that may be available to help you collect the compensation you need to recover from your injuries and move forward with your life.

The insurance company is offering me a settlement, what should I do?

You should never accept a settlement or sign any papers from the insurance company without first speaking with a qualified Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyer. While you may believe the insurance company is on your side, insurance companies are in the business of paying as little as possible so that they can maximize their profits. These companies are notorious for offering quick “low ball” settlements when victims are confused and vulnerable. A skilled motorcycle crash attorney will protect your rights and vigorously pursue the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve.

What are some of the most common causes of motorcycle crashes?

Like car accidents, motorcycle accidents can happen as a result of countless behaviors and conditions. Some of the most common reasons for motorcycle accidents include:

  • Distracted Drivers
  • Drunk and Impaired Drivers
  • Speeding and Other Dangerous Behaviors
  • Motorcycle Lane Splitting
  • Poor Visibility and Hazardous Road Conditions
  • Head On Collisions
  • Rear End Collisions
  • Left Turn Collisions
