What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries. There are certain steps you should take following the accident to ensure that you receive the most compensation possible for your losses.

If you are the victim of a motorcycle accident, you should:

  • Get to a safe location
  • Contact law enforcement to report the accident
  • Refrain from taking off your helmet and gear until paramedics arrive
  • Take pictures of your bike and the accident scene
  • Exchange information with any drivers involved in the accident
  • Collect statements from any witnesses to the accident
  • Seek medical attention even if you feel okay
  • Consult with our skilled personal injury attorney

Remember, insurance companies are not your friends. If the at-fault driver’s insurer tries to contact you for information about your crash and injuries, do not speak to them. They want to try to get you to say something that could limit their liability. An insurance adjuster could even try to offer you a low-ball settlement. Please do not fall for it. It is better to let our legal team handle these negotiations on your behalf. One simple mistake could cost you thousands of dollars.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics

In the U.S., about 5,000 motorcycle riders are killed in accidents every year. Approximately 85,000 individuals per year incur injuries from a motorcycle crash. The Hawaiian Islands are no stranger to motorcycle accidents that result in severe, catastrophic, or fatal injuries. On average, 25 riders are killed in a motorcycle accident in Hawaii every year, and around 1,300 more incur non-fatal injuries.

Regardless of the specific cause, when someone else is responsible for your injuries, you are entitled to fight for fair compensation. Our legal team can help you recover payment for the cost of medical bills, lost income, scarring, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and wrongful death.
