If you were involved in a motorcycle accident you should do a number of things, including the following:

  • Call 9-1-1.

  • Exchange information with other people involved in the accident, including names, addresses, telephone numbers, insurance information, license plate numbers, etc.

  • Get names, addresses and telephone numbers of witnesses, and find out what they saw.

  • Take pictures of the accident scene, damaged vehicles and other property, and any visible injuries.

  • Go to a doctor regarding injuries you suffered or may have suffered.

  • Contact your insurance agent.

  • Review your insurance coverage.

  • Submit any traffic accident reports required by law.

  • Obtain copies of any police records regarding the accident.

  • Get estimates regarding what it will cost to fix your motorcycle.

  • Save all receipts and other documents showing expenses and losses you suffered as a result of the accident.

  • Be careful about the information you put on social media sites, in text messages, and in emails; and what you tell others; regarding the accident and any injuries you might have sustained. The information you give might be used against you later.

  • You SHOULD NOT accept any settlement offer or make any statements regarding the accident (except to the police or to your insurance company) without consulting an attorney. The attorney you contact should be very familiar with motorcycle accidents because, in some states, there are significant legal differences between motorcycle accidents and accidents involving other types of vehicles. Many attorneys provide a free initial consultation.

    I am thinking to buy a heavy bike but my budget is a little bit low so I landed to your web page. I am amazed to see the review about this bike which lead me to make a final decision after discussing with my family members.
