Like any auto accident, documentation is key following motorcycle accidents. However, due to the severity of many motorcycle accident injuries, documenting the scene is often impossible for motorcyclists and their passengers. If you are unable to document the scene following your accident, one of our Connecticut injury attorneys will gather the necessary information during the investigation phase of your personal injury claim.
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, please contact Penner Law Firm or call 203-878-1254 today to schedule a free consultation with one of our Connecticut injury lawyers.
On the Scene
Your first priority should always be your health and safety. Get the medical treatment that you need on the scene. When possible, you should also try to gather evidence at the scene of your motorcycle accident:
- Contact 911 – cooperate with police and EMTs, but do not admit fault
- Photograph the scene – shoot the scene from multiple angles and include as much information as possible
- Gather info from the other drivers – get vehicle, insurance, and contact information
- Gather contact info from any witnesses
- Contact your insurance company to report the accident
Your insurance company may wish to send an adjustor to the scene. Do not admit fault to the phone representative, the adjustor, or anyone else involved with your insurance company.
After Your Accident
Seek medical assistance as soon as possible following your motorcycle accident, even if you were cleared by EMTs. There are a number of serious personal injuries that can take longer to show symptoms.
If you suffer a serious injury in a motorcycle accident, you will want an injury lawyer on your side as soon as possible. Your lawyer will be essential for ensuring you are treated fairly and offered the actual compensation you deserve.
