Secure Compensation for Your Motorcycle Accident Injuries with the Help of a Dedicated Lawyer
Motorcyclists are perceived by many people to be adventurous troublemakers and reckless thrill-seekers. As a result, when a motorcycle and a car collide, most assume that the motorcyclist is naturally the one at fault. Not only is this assumption incorrect. It is irresponsible to believe that all motorcyclists speed, drive impaired, drag race, and ignore lane laws when motor vehicle operators are often guilty of the same. Because of this bias, motorcyclists should seek the help of an attorney to present the facts indisputably on their behalf.
Motorcycle accident lawyer Roger “Rocky” Walton and his team in Arlington, TX, can build a case to defend the rights of motorcyclists and secure compensation on their behalf if they have been injured in a motor vehicle accident.
What to Do after a Motorcycle Accident
Immediately following a motorcycle accident, it is important to follow several important steps to protect your innocence and ensure the best outcomes in the future. After an accident, you should:
- Call 911: If anyone needs medical attention, call 911 first.
- Move out of traffic: If it is safe to do so, move your motorcycle out of traffic and turn on your hazard lights to let other drivers know that you are stopped.
- Call the police: Even if you are involved in a minor motorcycle accident, call the police to obtain a police report, which can be used as evidence later.
- Exchange information: Gather the license, contact, and insurance information of the other driver or drivers involved.
