Get the Justice You Deserve From a Motorcycle Accident | Chappell Law Group

So you’ve been in an accident while riding your motorcycle; now what? First and foremost is making sure you’re okay. Yes you might have had all the proper safety equipment on, but if you have been thrown from the motorcycle you could very well have injuries you haven’t realized yet. Adrenaline and shock can mask many injuries while your body is in survival mode. Seeking out a medical evaluation and treatment should be your first priority! If it is possible, take as many pictures of the accident as you can. If you are too injured to do so, try to have someone else take pictures for you. Once those two have been taken care of, we strongly urge you to write down all of the details about the accident you can. Going a step further if you can draw out a simple diagram of the accident and location is even better! Finally, do not admit guilt! Many times individuals will apologize and blame themselves during the confusion and chaos of a motor vehicle accident. The problem with this is, even if you weren’t at fault admitting guilt makes your case significantly harder. After all, who wants to be blamed for someone else’s lack of judgment? So to sum up what to do after a accident is: Make sure you’re not hurt, seek out medical help, take pictures and draw diagrams of the situation, and do NOT admit guilt. The more information you have at your disposal will make it much easier for you to get the help and justice you deserve.
