If you are the unfortunate victim of a collision, there are some steps you can take to make the best of a bad situation.

What Should You Do After a Motorcycle Accident?

Remain Calm

The most important thing to do is to remain calm and clearheaded. With a clear head you can properly identify if you have any injuries and focus on what needs to be done.

Get Off the Road

If you can, move your bike and yourself to the side of the road so that you are not in danger of being hit by traffic. If you are injured, stay put and ask that any witnesses ignite flares or place other signals around the accident scene.

Call for Help

Call for medical or police assistance if you need to. If you are injured and unable to reach a phone, assign someone on the scene to call for help.

Gather Information

If you are able, get contact information of everyone involved in the motorcycle accident. Gather names, phone numbers, addresses, and insurance information of the person who hit you. Record names and phone numbers of witnesses. This information will be valuable to you later on.
