Defending your rights in a crash in 3 easy steps

On Behalf of | Feb 26, 2015 | Motorcycle Accidents |

When you think of a motorcyclist, what type of person typically comes to mind? For a lot of people here in California and across the nation, they think of a young man. These people also often assume that because he drives a motorcycle, he must be reckless behind the wheel as well.

But what most people don’t realize is that this stereotype is far from the truth. Motorcyclists can be any age and any gender for that matter. More to the point, not all motorcyclists are reckless. Many take great pride is operating their vehicle as safely as possible. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for a majority of other drivers on our roadways.

As we have said before in past posts, California’s roadways are a dangerous place for motorcyclists. From unsafe roadways to distracted drivers, crashes happen across our state regardless of how safe the motorcyclist was trying to be. But if riders who are reading today’s post follow these three easy steps, they can make sure that their rights are protected in the event they become involved in a crash.

Commit the accident to memory and know what happened

It’s important to commit as many details to memory as possible because these may help the police and eventually your insurance company assess fault in the crash. It’s also important not to be influenced by what the other driver is claiming. They might try to make up details that make you look like you’re at fault. If you know you had the right of way though, make sure you reiterate that and stand your ground.

Get the other driver’s information

If you were injured in the crash and believe you are owed compensation, then you’ll want to make sure to get the other driver’s information before leaving the scene. Because some people have been known to give false information after a crash though, you may want verify the information they give you as well.

Seek the help of a lawyer

Filing compensation claims can be frustrating, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the law and your right to compensation. With the help of a lawyer though, you can make sure you’re not only getting the compensation you deserve but an amount that will cover a fair amount of the damages as well.
