I Was In A Motorcycle Wreck! Now What?

What Should I Do in the Event of a Motorcycle Accident?

  1. Contact Police: Give a brief statement to the police officer, admitting nothing and signing nothing. Ensure a Police Report is filed.
  2. Identify the Driver: Obtain the other driver’s name, address, vehicle registration number, driver’s license details, and insurance information.
  3. Seek Medical Treatment: If injured, seek immediate medical treatment and maintain records of all services provided.
  4. Witnesses: Gather information from witnesses, including their names, phone numbers, and addresses. Ask for written statements about what they observed.
  5. Insurance: Contact your insurance agency as required. Avoid speaking to the other driver’s insurance company.

What LawBike Does:

Our office will investigate your motorcycle accident, collecting evidence such as photos, witness statements, and police reports. We’ll send letters to all available insurance companies, seeking coverages.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage: If the other driver is uninsured or underinsured, you may make a claim under your insurance policy. Report the accident to all applicable insurance policies in your household.

Dealing with Insurance: Refrain from discussing details with the responsible party’s insurance. Direct all inquiries to our office.

Medical Records: We’ll request medical records and bills from providers. Keep us informed of any prior injuries or statements made to insurance representatives.

Settling Property Damage Claim: We’ll settle your property damage claim at no cost, ensuring fair compensation for motorcycle and personal property damage.

Settlement Demand: We’ll work to settle your case with insurance companies, waiting to assess the full extent of your injuries before determining a specific amount. We won’t settle without your permission.

Filing Lawsuit: In Georgia, you have two years to file a lawsuit. We typically wait until the permanency of injuries is known or until the two-year period is about to expire.

Please feel free to call us with any questions, and we’ll keep you informed about the progress of your case.
