Injured in a Motorcycle Accident? Here’s What to Do Next.
- Be sure to report the accident to the police and your insurance company. This gets the ball rolling so you have a record of what has happened.
- Get the medical help you need and do it soon. Toughing out the pain, thinking it will go away, will just slow your recovery. If you don’t know who to see, we can recommend some medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and therapists.
- If possible, get someone over to the scene of the accident to take pictures. Evidence disappears quickly, so those first pictures can be important.
- If the police didn’t impound the bike, have someone put it into storage. Get pictures and a good report from a mechanic about damage before anything gets fixed.
