What To Do After a Clark County Motorcycle Accident

What you do immediately following a personal injury in Clark County can have a significant effect on your ability to recover compensation. Generally, it is a good idea to take the following steps:

  • Get yourself to safety. If you are able to, remove yourself from any dangerous situation. If you are in the middle of the road and are able to move, remove yourself out of the roadway. If you notice flammable liquids or other hazards nearby, take steps to protect yourself. Your safety should be your number one priority.
  • Seek medical attention. Even if you feel okay or do not have any noticeable injuries, it is still a good idea to get evaluated by a medical professional. You may have suffered internal injuries. It may be more difficult to prove an injury was caused by the motorcycle crash if you wait before seeking medical treatment.
  • Gather as much information as you can. In addition to writing down your recollection of events, try to gather as much information as you can. Information regarding the other driver or drivers involved, any witnesses who may have seen the accident, and photographs of the accident scene can all be very useful later when you seek compensation.
  • Speak with a Clark County motorcycle accident lawyer. Any sort of vehicle accident case is complicated, and motorcycle accidents are no exception. It can be particularly complex to identify all the causes of a motorcycle crash and to minimize the damage caused by any negligence of the motorcyclist. The sooner you retain an attorney the better, as important evidence can be lost if quick action is not taken to preserve it.
