Advising Motorcycle Accident Victims throughout the Florida Panhandle Area
Knowing what to do after you have been involved in a motorcycle accident can be incredibly difficult, especially when you have been seriously injured. In many cases, however, victims who have taken the proper steps immediately after an accident have greatly increased their chances of recovering compensation for their injuries and all losses resulting from the accident.
If you have been in a motorcycle accident and can remember, you should take several steps, including:
- Contact the police immediately
- Do not admit fault or place blame
- Contact a family member
- Take photos of the scene of the accident
- Gather witness statements that demonstrate the cause of your accident
- Seek medical attention, even if no injuries present themselves immediately
- Contact an attorney
