6 Important Steps to Take after a Motorcycle Accident
Stay on the Scene
You should not leave the scene of an accident without speaking to other drivers or the authorities. If possible, move any vehicles involved out of traffic.
After a motorcycle accident, you should contact the police for an incident report and seek medical attention for anyone who was injured.
Exchange contact and insurance information with anyone who was involved in the accident. If you can, speak to those who witnessed the crash as well.
Taking pictures or video of the accident scene, including any property damage and injuries, can significantly increase your chance of a positive resolution to your case.
Do Not Apologize
Even a simple apology could be used against you after a motorcycle accident. Do not admit any fault while on the scene.

Identifying the Cause of a Motorcycle Crash Can Improve the Outcome of Your Case
It is not always easy to pinpoint the exact cause of a motorcycle accident. In some situations, there may be multiple factors which led to your injuries, but the causes of the incident can impact the way you pursue compensation.
For example, if you were injured because a car recklessly changed lanes, their insurance company should pay for the damages. However, if the accident was related to a defective part in your motorcycle, you may have a case to sue the manufacturer for your injuries.
Our Daytona Beach motorcycle accident attorneys have been helping injured bikers collect compensation for over 30 years. We can thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to your injury and determine the best course of action based on your needs.
As all riders know, motorcyclists face unique threats on the road. In particular, other vehicles often fail to spot motorcycles on the road; this often leads to collisions with cars and trucks. These collisions tend to be far more devastating than other auto accidents because motorcyclists have little to protect them apart from leather clothing and a helmet.
The victims of motorcycle accidents, then, often require significant medical attention. This leads to heavy medical bills, long-term physical therapy and significant periods of missed work — factors that could put a financial strain on any family.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you should consider taking legal action. We have the skills and experience to thoroughly investigate your case, taking the actions necessary to secure the maximum possible settlement.
Many of the same laws that protect injured motorcyclists also apply to other motorists. Moped and scooter accidents can be just as devastating as accidents involving motorcycles; those who have been injured in this way should consider taking legal action.
