Their knowledge and experience can help you get the compensation you deserve.

1. Assess the Damage

motorcycle accident Andalusia ALImmediately after the collision, assess the damage to both your body and your bike. Let first responders examine you, even if you feel fine—some impact injuries are not apparent right away. If you are physically capable of moving your bike to the side of the road, do so for safety reasons; however, take photos of your bike and the rest of the accident scene before moving anything.

2. Exchange Contact Information

Get the contact information of everyone involved in the motorcycle accident. This includes other motorists, passengers, and any witnesses who might have seen the crash. You should also get insurance information from the other drivers involved.

3. Call a Personal Injury Lawyer

The sooner you call an attorney, the stronger your case will be. If you want to pursue damages for the accident, call for legal help right away. Your attorney will help you negotiate a fair settlement and prevent you from making mistakes that might compromise your case.
