What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents are unexpected and can leave you feeling overwhelmed and vulnerable. Knowing the right steps to take in such moments can make all the difference in protecting your rights, ensuring your safety, and setting the stage for a successful recovery. Here is a detailed guide on what to do after a motorcycle accident:

  1. Call 911: The safety of all individuals involved should be your top priority. Immediately dial 911 to report the accident. Provide accurate information about the accident’s location, the number of vehicles involved, and the condition of those injured. Follow the dispatcher’s instructions carefully.
  2. Collect Information from the Other Party(s): Exchange information with all parties involved in the accident. This includes obtaining their full name, date of birth, address, driver’s license number and state, vehicle license number and state, driver’s insurance company name and policy number, vehicle owner’s name and address, and vehicle owner’s insurance company name and policy number. Ensure that the information is accurate and legible.
  3. Capture Visual Evidence: Use your smartphone or camera to document the accident scene thoroughly. Take pictures of all involved vehicles, the damage sustained, the positions of the vehicles, road conditions, traffic signs, and any visible injuries. To provide a comprehensive view of the scene, take pictures from multiple angles. If possible, record videos, as they can be invaluable for reconstructing the events.
  4. Obtain Witness Information and Statements: If there are witnesses to the accident, gather their contact information, including their full name, phone number, email address, and home address. Ask them for a statement describing what they saw, and ensure they sign and date it. Witness statements can provide crucial support for your case.
  5. Check for Surveillance Cameras: Investigate the area for potential surveillance cameras. In today’s digital age, many public spaces, including gas stations, shops, restaurants, businesses, and residential areas, are equipped with security cameras. If any camera footage of the accident exists, request a copy for your records.
  6. Seek Immediate Medical Attention: Even if you believe your injuries are minor or not immediately apparent, seek medical attention without delay. Adrenaline and shock can mask pain, and some injuries may take time to fully manifest. A prompt medical evaluation not only ensures your health but also creates a documented record of injuries related to the accident.
  7. Avoid Discussing the Accident Online: In the age of social media, it is crucial to exercise caution. Refrain from discussing the accident or your injuries on social media platforms. Insurance companies and opposing parties may use your posts against you. Privacy settings are not foolproof, so it is best to avoid sharing any details online.
  8. Consult with Experienced Attorneys at FIELDING LAW: Before engaging with insurance companies or making any formal statements, consult with experienced attorneys at Fielding Law. We offer free, confidential consultations to assess the details of your case, discuss your rights, and provide guidance on your next steps. Insurance companies may seek to settle quickly, but it is essential to consult with legal professionals who can ensure your interests are protected before taking any action.

By following these steps, you can proactively safeguard your well-being, gather essential evidence for your case, and make informed decisions in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident. Fielding Law is here to be your trusted legal partner during this challenging time, advocating for your rights and helping you on the road to recovery.

Understanding Motorcycle Accident Types and Liability

Motorcycle accidents can occur in various ways, often leading to severe injuries or fatalities. Understanding the common types of accidents and how liability is determined is crucial in building a strong case. Here are some common scenarios:

Rear-End Collisions: When a motorist fails to maintain a safe following distance and collides with a motorcycle from behind, they are usually at fault.

Left-Turn Accidents: Motorcycles are often involved in accidents when other vehicles make left turns in front of them. The vehicle making the left turn is typically liable for the accident.

Intersection Collisions: Accidents at intersections can result from drivers running red lights, stop signs, or failing to yield the right of way to motorcycles.

Lane Splitting Accidents: In some states, lane splitting is legal, but it can still lead to accidents. Liability in these cases can vary depending on local laws and the circumstances.

Single-Vehicle Accidents: While not always the case, some single-vehicle motorcycle accidents can be attributed to road hazards or defects, making government entities liable.

Determining liability in motorcycle accidents can be complex. Our team at Fielding Law has the expertise to investigate the circumstances and establish liability accurately.

Why You Should Seek Legal Counsel After a Motorcycle Accident

Securing legal representation is crucial following a motorcycle accident. Here is why it is imperative to have an attorney by your side:

Thorough Investigation: Attorneys are equipped with the resources and expertise needed to conduct comprehensive investigations into motorcycle accidents. They meticulously gather vital evidence, interview witnesses, consult experts, and reconstruct accident scenes to construct a compelling case on your behalf.

Negotiation Prowess: Navigating negotiations with insurers can be formidable. Attorneys are adept negotiators who champion your rights and work tirelessly to secure equitable compensation for your injuries and losses.

Tailored Legal Strategies: Attorneys craft personalized legal strategies that align with your unique circumstances. They recognize that every motorcycle accident case is distinct and are committed to optimizing your chances of a favorable outcome.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fielding in the past, and I cannot recommend him and his team enough. They're true professionals from intake to close outs, and will make sure a difficult process goes as smoothly as possible. All-around great guy and one heck of an attorney.

As a fellow Arizona attorney, my interactions with Fielding Law was top notch. Both attorneys and support staff were friendly and helpful. Plus, their office in Tempe is brand new and very cool.

It was great to have Clark and his team in our corner. We were t-boned by someone that ran a red light. However, while we were being taken to the hospital, the other driver told the police that it was our fault. With things not looking good, Clark was able to get our side of the story reported to the police, deal with all the doctors and insurance people and get us a settlement. They went above and beyond what we thought was possible. Can’t imagine dealing with this nightmare without Clark and his team.
