What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident? Protect Your Rights

The moments following a motorcycle accident are critical, not just for your physical well-being but also for safeguarding your legal rights. The chaos and confusion that ensue can cloud judgment, making it essential to have a clear plan of action. Here’s what we suggest you to do to preserve your right to compensation:

  1. Prioritize your safety and that of others involved. Assess for any injuries and call for medical help. If possible, move to a safe location away from traffic to prevent further accidents.
  2. Call the police. It’s crucial to report the accident to the Chesterfield Police Department. You can reach them for non-emergencies at 804-748-1251. An official police report can be invaluable to your case.
  3. Collect names, contact details, insurance information, and vehicle details from all parties involved. Take photographs of the accident scene, your injuries, and all vehicles involved. This visual evidence can be crucial.
  4. If there are any witnesses, gather their contact information as they can provide valuable statements later.
  5. Before dealing with insurance companies, consult with a lawyer at Tronfeld West & Durrett who specializes in motorcycle accidents to understand your rights and options. Insurance companies may ask you to provide recorded statements and later try to offer lower settlements that won’t cover all your injuries.

Taking these steps can significantly impact the outcome of your case, ensuring that your rights are protected and you are positioned to receive the compensation you are entitled.

Prevalent Factors Behind Motorcycle Accidents

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles reports that in 2023 alone, there were 68 motorcycle accidents in the area, four of which tragically ended in fatalities. In such circumstances, understanding the common causes behind these accidents is the first step toward setting precedents for negligent drivers and protecting our community’s motorcyclists. Overall, these are the most common causes we handle in our clients’ cases:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving: Attention diverted from the road, whether by mobile devices, other passengers, or external distractions, can cause car accidents and harm motorcyclists.
  • Failure to yield: Misjudgments or failures to yield the right of way at intersections are common causes of collisions between motorcycles and other vehicles.
  • Lane splitting: Riding between lanes of slow-moving or stopped traffic can lead to accidents, especially when other drivers are not anticipating such maneuvers.
  • Alcohol and drug use
  • Poor road conditions

No matter how big or small your case is, we are here to hold the responsible accountable and build a strong case on your behalf. We’re big enough to handle any case – small enough to have a personal feel.
