Your Quick Guide to Legal Steps After a Motorcycle Wreck

Legal steps after a Texas Motorcycle Accident

What You Must do When You’ve Been in a Wreck

Across the country, motorcycle wrecks claim innocent victims daily.  These victims should not have to worry about any of the medical bills, lost wages, and should be reimbursed for their pain and suffering.  When following the right legal steps, your case can be handled quickly and efficiently by the Car Crash Captain.

Legal Steps to Take Following a Texas Motorcycle Wreck

Assuming that your injuries have not left you unconscious or otherwise incapacitated, following these steps will allow your claim against the at-fault party’s insurance to go much more smoothly.

Stay Calm and Be Safe

Panic elevates your heart rate, which can make injuries worse if you’re already bleeding.  Try to take deep breaths and know that the accident happened, and now it’s time to make sure everyone is safe.

Move out of the flow of traffic, and assess the situation.  See what happened, who was around, and identify the other vehicle or vehicles involved.

Call for Emergency Personnel

Your safety and health are the number one priority.  Call to have the police and emergency medical crews come to the scene.  They can all help organize the chaos that may be unfolding, and if you’re seriously injured (or even if you don’t think you are, there can be hidden injuries) you need treatment right away.

Get Others’ Information

Get information from the other motorist.  Take pictures of insurance documents and driver’s licenses if they have them available.  Get contact information from any witnesses that may have seen the accident – especially if they have a dash cam that recorded what happened.

Take Pictures of the Scene

Before vehicles are moved, snap some quick pictures of the scene.  These can help recreate the accident if necessary.  They will also provide a better idea of what happened, and if your settlement negotiations end up going to court, they can be used to help prove your case.

Get Medical Attention

No matter how minor the accident may have seemed, you will have sustained some injuries.  It may just be scratches and some bruises, but until a medical professional thoroughly checks you over, the extend of the injuries may be hard to determine.  Seeking medical attention right away starts the records that shows your injuries were a result of the accident, and it’s much harder to argue otherwise later.
