Rochester Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
In 2007 the federal government reported that there were 123,000 motorcycle accidents; 5,154 resulting in fatalities. A surprising aspect of these accidents was that 50% were not the fault of the motorcyclist. In many of these accidents, the fault lies with the driver of the car, van or truck that caused the accident – and usually it’s a matter of the driver not being able to see the bike. Our Rochester motorcycle accident attorneys understand that the injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident can change your life forever. We have helped countless victims recover the compensation they deserve for the injuries they suffered.
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident you should follow these steps:
- You or someone else on the scene should call the police immediately
- As soon as the police officer arrives make sure he starts his police report
- Even if you think your injuries are minor, you need to seek medical treatment
- Get the license plate number, personal information and the insurance coverage of the driver that hit you
- Seek out any witnesses who can provide details of the accident
If you have a serious injury at the scene of the accident you will not be able to follow those steps, but that doesn’t mean a family member or whoever your passenger is can’t gather this info. After you have gathered this information you should contact an attorney and tell them what happened to see what your legal rights are.
