What should you do if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident?

If you are in a motorcycle accident you’re going to find that you experience quite a bit of confusion. Although everyone who rides a motorcycle knows that they are at a greater risk for getting into an accident, it’s rare for them to plan ahead as far as the steps they should take. As your DC motorcycle accident attorney, we would like to offer you a few steps that you should take if you ever find yourself to be the victim of a motorcycle accident.
Step 1: Seek medical attention
If you’re injured, or you think you have been injured, no matter how slight the injury, it’s still very important for you to seek medical help. Some injuries might not surface for a few days, or even a few weeks after the accident has taken place. It’s important for you to be seen by a physician so that you can rule out any potential injuries. In the event that you need to speak with an attorney, you will need to have the documentation from a local doctor as well.
Step 2: Get a police report
Once you have been seen by a doctor, you will want to get a copy of the police report from your local police department. Even if your accident seems to be a minor one, be sure to call the police to have a report done. This is important evidence that you will want to have in your possession.
Step 3: Contact a DC accident attorney
If you’re like many people, you’re not sure what your rights are after you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, or any type of motor vehicle accident. It is important for you to touch base with a qualified attorney who understands your legal situation, and who can advise you of your rights in your case. You should also seek legal advice to find out if you are able to receive compensation for your injuries.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in a motorcycle accident, following these steps gives you the best chance of receiving the compensation you deserve. You might not ever expect to be injured in an accident, but it’s important to be prepared.
