What to do after a motorcycle accident
If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, it’s important to take the following steps:
- – Always call 911 if anyone has been injured in the accident to make sure you and others involved receive timely medical care
- – Take down information on the make, model, and license plates of all the vehicles as well as contact information for other drivers or pedestrians involved in the motorcycle accident
- Make sure your insurance company reviews the damages to your motorcycle before you make any repairs
- Consult with a motorcycle injury attorney to see what rights you have and if compensation is an option for you
According to the Wall Street Journal, twelve people die every day in the United States due to injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents. Motorcycles offer no protection in a crash and so it is important to always check your motorcycle’s condition before hitting the road. While wearing a helmet is not required by law in Illinois, it is critical to preventing serious injury in a motorcycle accident. When driving a car or truck, it’s also important to be alert to motorcycles, especially with many older riders returning to motorcycle use, sometimes after not riding for several decades.
