What Should I Do At the Scene of the Accident?

The moments following a motorcycle wreck can be pivotal to both your safety and the solidity of any potential claims or lawsuits you may have in the future. Thus, the way you handle the situation at the scene of the accident is crucial. Remember that it's important to remain at the scene of the accident until the authorities arrive. Call 911 immediately if anyone is hurt. Once you've ensured that you are safe and uninjured, as well as any other involved parties, take the following steps:

  1. If safe and possible, move your bike out of the way of traffic to a safe area; blocking traffic causes additional safety concerns

  2. Call the police to get an official accident report drafted, as it will play a significant role in any claim or case you may have going forward

  3. Once you have made sure that other parties are not hurt, collect the other driver's information, including their name, address, driver's license info, insurance info, license plates, etc

  4. Obtain any contact information and statements from witnesses at the scene

  5. If it's safe to do so, get photos of the accident and damages, including the surrounding area of the scene

  6. See a doctor, even if you “feel fine,” as injuries can show up days after the accident has happened

Remember to never admit fault or post photos to social media. Even seemingly innocent statements like “my bad” or “I should have been paying more attention” can come back to bite you down the road. Refrain from making “polite” statements to any party or insurance representative.

Damages: Who's Liable for a Motorcycle Accident?

Arizona and New Mexico are both fault states, meaning the party who caused the accident is liable for damages. This means that proving fault in a motorcycle accident is crucial. This could be an important reason to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer to ensure you can prove fault, especially if details seem murky or the negligent party or parties are refusing responsibility for the accident. Some items an attorney might gather to prove liability in an accident include: 

  • Police accident reports

  • Accident reconstruction analysis

  • Eyewitness reports

  • Video and photo evidence from the scene

  • Electronic crash data

  • Medical records and bills

If the fault is questionable or shared, consulting an Arizona accident law firm is the next best step for you. 

Motorcycle Crash Compensation

Depending on your specific case, a number of damages might be available to you. It's advisable to speak to an attorney to fully understand what compensation might look like for you, as they can help put a number on your reward and negotiate with the insurance company to ensure you get a sufficient amount of settlement to begin your recovery process. Some types of damages you may be able to recover, include:

  • Medical Bills - Often accidents compound medical bills. You can receive compensation for current and future medical expenses, including emergency visits, X-rays, MRIs, prescriptions, doctor visits, etc

  • Lost Wages - Plaintiffs can recover wages lost due to having to take time off from work following the accident

  • Emotional or Physical Trauma/Pain - A motorcycle wreck can hurt in multiple areas causing mental anguish or physical pain. A lawyer can help you put a value on these types of non-economic damages.

Securing sufficient compensation for your accident injuries is an important step to your recovery. Sometimes insurance companies can give victims the runaround and offer ridiculously low settlements. Don't settle for less than you deserve– call Impact Legal now.
