Orange County Motorcycle Accident FAQ

What is the first thing I should do if I am involved in a motorcycle accident?
You should always call 911 immediately after being involved in a motorcycle accident. A police agency will create a report and make a determination of who was at fault as well as contact emergency services if there are any accidents or injuries. If you or someone else involved in the accident has suffered injuries, you must seek medical attention immediately.

Do I need to exchange information with the other driver?
It is vital to exchange information with any other drivers involved in the accident. You should obtain their name, address, phone number, insurance company, agent, agent contact information and policy number. It is also recommended that you get the make and model of the vehicle, the license plate and any identifying markers.

Should I contact witnesses to my motorcycle accident?
Witnesses could be vital to your case. They may have seen erratic or reckless driving by the other motorist prior to the accident or witnessed the cause of the accident. You should always get the names and numbers of any witnesses and try to get them to write down what they saw. The longer time that transpires between the incident and when a statement is needed means the less likely that the witness will remember everything.

Do I need to hire a personal injury attorney?
If someone else was at fault for your motorcycle accident, then you should hire a qualified personal injury lawyer that can assist you with getting the compensation that you deserve. Failure to hire a skilled attorney could mean that you settle for less money than you deserve.

Should I speak with an insurance agent if I am involved in an accident?
If someone else was at fault for the accident that you were involved in, then you should contact a competent lawyer prior to speaking with the insurance agent and making any recorded statements that could be detrimental to your case.

What kind of damages will I be compensated for?
Generally, you can be compensated for any measurable damages if someone else is at fault for the accident. This means that all medical expenses should be covered. In addition to medical related expenses you may be able to receive compensation for lost wages, expected future wages, rental vehicles, repairs to your vehicle and pain and suffering.

The best way to determine what damages you will receive in your motorcycle accident case is to contact an Orange County personal injury attorney.
