What should I do in the event of a motorcycle accident? 

It is a reality that motorcycle accidents are more dangerous than car accidents. Most of these accidents can be fatal or cause serious personal injury due to the high speeds that can be reached with these vehicles and because the driver's protection at the time of an accident is limited to a helmet. In addition to speeding, many motorcycle accidents are due to distracted or aggressive drivers, deterioration of the roads, and even motorists' reckless and dangerous behavior, especially in California, where they are legally allowed to travel between cars.  Knowing what to do in these cases is vital to safeguard the victim's physical integrity and ensure that they can obtain a compensation that allows them to attend to severe injuries, payment of treatment and medical bills, and the inability to attend work, among other inconveniences. Under these circumstances, it is advisable to act as follows:

  • Get yourself to a safe place.

 The idea is that you stay away from the road or highway to protect yourself from possible collisions or other types of danger.

  • Seek medical attention.

If possible, check yourself and seek immediate medical attention so that your injuries are treated and to prevent more severe injuries. Do not make the mistake of not going to the doctor thinking that you have no injuries or that the injuries are minor.

  • Call the police to report the accident.

With the intention that the accident be documented and the witnesses and those involved are identified. If possible, and if you are not transferred to the hospital in an ambulance, try to obtain evidence: photographs of the accident scene, damage caused, weather and road conditions, contact numbers of those present.

  • Contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney.

Undoubtedly, a lawyer specialized in this type of accident is the one who can best represent you to protect your rights or that of your family member if this is the case. .
