What to Do After an Accident
Here are a few tips to remember after any car accident:
- See a doctor: If you are in an auto accident, you should immediately seek proper medical attention. Obtaining prompt medical care not only ensures your health but also helps in documenting the injuries you sustained as a result of an accident. This documentation will play a critical role in your case and may affect the ultimate result in your case.
- Exchange contact information but do not admit fault. If police officers are not dispatched to the scene of the accident, you should try to obtain the license plate numbers of all vehicles involved in the accident, the name and address of the driver, and the name of their insurance company, including the policy number. It is wise to refrain from entering into any conversation with the other driver. Statements you make may be used against you. DO NOT APOLOGIZE FOR ANYTHING OR ADMIT ANY FAULT.
- Document the evidence. Following an accident, you should take photographs of any damage to your vehicle and other property, your physical injuries (if they are apparent), and the accident scene. Take notes on how the accident occurred and any statements the other parties made. If your accident takes place in a dark or badly lit area, immediately call the police and do not exit your vehicle until they arrive.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Even if motorcyclists are operating safely, accidents can still occur at any time due to a variety of factors.
An accident can occur as the result of:
- Poor Communication: Motorcyclists sometimes travel in groups, but they must communicate clearly to avoid colliding to moving into other lanes of travel
- Inattentive Drivers: Motorcyclists can be difficult to spot on the road if you’re not paying attention
- Road Hazards: Motorcyclists may sometimes run into potholes or loose gravel or asphalt, creating dangerous conditions for all on the road
If you’ve been injured, it’s important that you seek legal representation. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses, which means your best interests aren’t their priority – money is. Our New York motorcycle accident attorneys put our clients and their needs first, no matter what.
