In the last post, we outlined the first steps to take following a motorcycle accident. It can be difficult to remain calm following a motorcycle accident, but following the steps outlined in this blog series will make sure everyone is safe and that you will be prepared to take any additional steps needed.
While taking pictures will provide documentation of the crash, you will want to collect as much information as possible from others involved in the crash and the police officer at the scene of the crash. Along with the pictures you take, this information can protect you or help you build a case after the crash.
Some of the most important information to collect includes:
Vehicle and contact information of all those involved in the crash
Insurance information of all those involved in the crash
The name and badge number of all police officers at the scene
The police report number
Gather Your Insurance Information
Bring all your insurance information to your attorney so that they can report the claims. Their office is not only ready and willing to report a claim to all insurance companies, they will report it in a way that doesn’t compromise the liability investigation that each company is doing. They can speak on your behalf, and protect and preserve the critical evidence that will help us recover your damages.
