Have you been involved in an I-5 motorcycle accident and don’t know what the proper actions to take during a motorcycle accident are? If you haven’t already done so, the very first and most important thing that you should do is dial 911. Then wait for the police to arrive.
Get as Much Information as You Can
Meanwhile, if there are no serious injuries after an I-5 motorcycle accident, you need to gather as much information as you can and be certain to write everything down. The proper actions to take during a motorcycle accident include:
The names, addresses and phone numbers of everyone involved
The insurance information of everyone involved (Including passengers and pedestrians)
The names, addresses and phone numbers of any witnesses
The make, model and tag numbers of all automobiles involved in the accident
If it is at all possible use your cell phone to take photographs of everything at the scene of the accident. The more information you gather the better off you will be if your case were to end up in court.
Insurance Adjusters Are Not Your Friends
After an I-5 motorcycle accident you can safely assume that you will be contacted by the other party’s insurance adjuster. Do not agree to speak with them, and don’t answer any of their questions, not even on the phone. Chances are good that the phone call is being recorded in an effort to gain evidence against you. Remember that an insurance adjuster’s job is to get you to say something that will put you at fault for the accident, even if you’re not.
