I Was Injured In a Motorcycle Crash, What Now?
After a motorcycle crash, it's important to take the right steps to protect your health, your rights, and your future. If your injuries are severe, call for help or ask someone else to call an ambulance immediately. Don’t move until medical professionals can assist you. If you do not think you were injured, you should still call 911 to report the incident to police, and if you do not use the service of an ambulance, you should seek a medical evaluation immediately, just to be sure. Some injuries, like head injuries, internal injuries, and whiplash, can remain unnoticed for hours or even days, especially if you’re experiencing a surge of adrenaline after the crash.
Once you’ve taken care of your medical needs, you should exchange information with other drivers involved, request a copy of the accident report from the officer, and take photos of the crash site and vehicular damage. Next, you’ll need to call your attorney to discuss your options.
