What should I do if I’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident?

If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, the first thing you should do is make sure you receive medical treatment. Not only will this help with your injuries, the medical record will be a vital piece of evidence in your claim.

If the police weren’t present after the accident, it’s also worthwhile contacting them as again this could prove valuable in your claim. Where possible, you should also record the contact details of any witnesses to the accident.
