If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important to take the right action to protect yourself and ensure you get all of the compensation that you are due. If you are lucky enough not to be seriously injured call the police immediately. Most motorcycle accidents are caused because other road users simply do not see the motorcyclist. Unfortunately, not every motorist involved in this kind of accident will admit that they did not see the rider. Even if they do so at the scene, they often change their mind later. If the police are there they can properly assess the scene and collect details you could use later for your claim.
Collect contact details
You need to collect the contact details of any witnesses and the others involved in the accident. This includes the make, model and plate of the other vehicle or vehicles.
Record the scene
Even if you have called the police, it is still wise to take photos at the scene. Drawing a sketch is also handy if you can do it. Note down anything you remember about how the accident happened and make a note of weather conditions and the condition of the road surface, signs and markings.
Seek legal advice
