Motorcycle accidents can be traumatic experiences that leave you with physical and emotional pain. In Nashville, TN, Stillman & Friedland is here to help you understand what to expect after a motorcycle accident and guide you through the legal process to get the compensation you deserve.
Seek Medical Attention
The most important thing to do after a motorcycle accident is to seek immediate medical attention. Even if you feel fine, it’s essential to get checked out by a doctor. A doctor ensures that there are no underlying injuries that could become more serious if left untreated. Injuries are not always immediately apparent after an accident; some may take days or weeks to show symptoms. Seeking medical attention will create a record of your injuries, which could help you in case you decide to pursue legal action.
Contact the Police
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, it is essential to contact the police. The police will create an official report of the accident, which can be vital if you decide to pursue legal action. It is also important to exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver involved in the accident. This will help you if you need to file a claim for damages against the other driver or their insurance company.
Contact an Attorney
After a motorcycle accident, contacting an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the legal system and protect your rights is essential. At Stillman & Friedland, our team of attorneys has extensive experience representing clients who have been injured in motorcycle accidents. We can help you understand your legal options, such as filing a personal injury lawsuit or negotiating a settlement with the insurance company, and work to get you the compensation you deserve.
Document the Accident
When you are recovering from an injury, thinking about what documents to save and how to document your injuries appropriately is usually the last thing on your mind. After a motorcycle accident, it is important to document as much information about the accident as possible. This includes:
- Taking photos of the scene of the accident.
- Obtaining contact information from any witnesses.
- Keeping track of any medical bills or expenses related to the accident.
This information can help your attorney build a strong case and prove the other driver’s liability for the accident.
After a motorcycle accident, the insurance company representing the other driver contacts you. It is important to remember that insurance companies are in the business of making money. Insurance companies may try to offer you a settlement for less than you are entitled to. At Stillman & Friedland, we can help you navigate the insurance process and work to get you the compensation you deserve. We can also communicate with the insurance company to ensure you do not say anything that could jeopardize your case.
