The first thing you should do is seek proper medical treatment immediately. Because motorcycle accidents often result in serious, life-threatening injuries, many victims are taken straight to the hospital via ambulance. However, if you’ve been injured but were not taken to the emergency room, you need to see a doctor right away, in order to establish the extent of the injuries in case you do decide to file legal action. It also important to document as much as you can about the accident in its immediate aftermath.
That includes getting the names and license numbers of any other drivers involved in the accident, photographing the accident scene and your injuries, and writing down all the details you can remember before your memory fades. This is extremely helpful if you later decide to file a claim. If you are too injured to handle this on your own, ask a family member or friend for help. Contact one of the motorcycle accident attorneys at Demas Law Group, P.C., who can advise you what to do next.
