IF YOU ARE IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT REMEMBER THESE ROAD RULES
Road Rule #1: REMAIN AT THE ACCIDENT SCENE
Unless your injuries require otherwise, don’t leave the scene of an accident until you have called the police and they have documented the accident. It’s important to obtain the other driver(s) name, address and phone number. Write down the license plate and registration numbers of the vehicle(s) involved in the accident. Ask the other driver(s) to show you their license, give you their phone numbers, their insurance company name and policy numbers. Obtain the names, phone numbers and addresses of all eyewitnesses. Don’t say you are not injured until you have seen a medical professional.
Road Rule #2: STATEMENTS
Do not discuss the accident with anyone except the investigating police officer, and then, only the basic facts. Statements made to your lawyer are confidential.
Road Rule #3: TAKE NOTES AND PICTURES OF THE ACCIDENT
Take notes of important details; draw a sketch, take pictures to preserve skid marks, the position of the vehicles and other physical evidence that will likely disappear after the accident.
Road Rule #4: INSURANCE REPORTS AND NOTIFICATIONS
CALL BIKER LAWYER before speaking or giving a statement to anyone. Remember, insurance companies profit by denying claims.
Road Rule #5: CLAIMS MADE AGAINST YOU
Refer all claims against you to your biker attorney. Do not pay or promise to pay any claimant. Immediately forward all papers to your attorney.
Road Rule #6: CLAIMS MADE BY YOU
An attorney is best equipped to advise you as to your legal rights to recover a fair and reasonable settlement. Protect your legal rights and seek competent legal advice.
