Motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic. You will need to be prepared no matter the outcome. We at Robinson, Seiler & Anderson in Provo can be there to help. We have experienced personal injury attorneys that can review your case and help you to obtain the compensation you need. Below are some steps for you to follow if you do find yourself in a motorcycle accident.
Report the Accident
Call 911 to report the accident, even if you are afraid you will be blamed. Many state laws require that you report an accident right away. Leaving the scene of an accident without waiting for the police to come is a crime in many states. Reporting the accident is also important if someone has been injured, and needs immediate medical attention. A police report will be necessary if your personal injury case gets to court. This will provide an accurate and truthful description of what happened.
See a Doctor
You will want to see a doctor as soon as possible after your accident. Even if you don’t have any noticeable injuries right away you will want to be evaluated to prevent injuries that can occur hours of even days afterward. A doctor will be able to provide you with a report of your injuries and how extensive they are.
Notify your Insurance Company
Notify either your insurance agent or your insurance company's claims office of the accident, and of the possibility of a claim. Instructions on how to report a claim-including the person or office to whom it must be reported-will be found in your insurance policy. You may be entitled to compensation to fix your motorcycle and get help paying for your injuries.
