What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident
Follow these steps after being in a motorcycle accident:
- Call 911: Most motorcycle accidents result in severe injury and vehicle devastation because motorcycles are so fragile and provide minimal protection to their riders. Therefore, 911 should be called after practically all motorcycle accidents.
- Exchange information: Speak with everyone who was involved in the accident to exchange information. You need to know names and insurance policy information, so you can file a claim correctly. If the driver who hit you tries to leave before being identified, then call 911 immediately again and let them know a hit-and-run is happening in real-time.
- Get evidence: You will need good evidence to show you did nothing wrong. Most of the time, such evidence is available in the moments immediately after the crash. Take pictures of the scene, injuries, vehicle damage, and traffic conditions. Also, write down the names and numbers of any eyewitnesses who stop to give a testimony.
- Receive medical attention: Do not go more than an hour or two without seeing a doctor after a motorcycle accident. If you aren’t taken to the hospital in an ambulance, you should take yourself to urgent care right away.
Colorado Motorcycle Laws
Motorcycle laws in Colorado can influence how your claim is formed and how it concludes. We can help you understand those laws and what they could do to your claim.
Two important Colorado motorcycle laws are:
- Helmet use: In Colorado, only motorcyclists under the age of 18 must wear a helmet. If you had to wear a helmet but were not, then your liability could increase. However, all riders should wear a helmet at all times, regardless of age. Your liability could increase if you willingly chose not to wear a helmet and understood that decision increased your risk of suffering a head injury.
- Lane-splitting: Colorado law does not allow for lane-splitting or lane-sharing, which means a motorcycle cannot ride between occupied lanes of traffic or immediately adjacent to another vehicle. If you were lane-splitting when your motorcycle accident happened, then your liability will probably increase.
