Ted Babbitt, Florida personal injury lawyer, wrote an article for the Palm Beach Post on what you should do immediately after being in a motorcycle accident.
Steps you should take following the crash:
- Gather evidence– photographs of the crash scene, statements from witnesses, notes of any injuries, the names, phone numbers, and addresses of anyone involved as well as the witnesses.
- Get the police report– you want your own copy of this. In Florida, you can order this report online via the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
- Visit a doctor– even if the injuries are minor. Report all of your injuries to the doctor and obtain copies of all medical records and care.
- File a claim– there is no PIP coverage for motorcycle drivers so you will need to report the accident to your insurance carrier to start the claims process.
