However, it’s essential to remain calm, step back, and gather your thoughts. After that, you can logically approach the situation and take the appropriate steps, which include: 

  1. Get to Safety: If you are physically capable of it, get yourself and your motorcycle out of danger by moving off the road and out of traffic.
  1. Call For Help: Call 911 immediately and tell them if anyone is injured so they can send first responders to treat the wounded. Even if you don’t believe you are injured, it’s always a good idea to be checked out either by responding medical personnel or an emergency room. Some injuries don’t show up immediately after an accident.
  1. Take Photos: After your motorcycle accident, use your cellphone to take pictures of the accident scene. Although the police will write a report, you need to have your photographs as well in case any legal action is necessary at a later date.
  1. Get Contact Information: If there are any witnesses to your motorcycle accident, you should get their contact information and ask them what they saw. Additionally, you will want the contact and insurance information of any other driver involved in your Florida motorcycle accident.
  1. Do Not Admit Fault: No matter whom you talk to, the police, the other drivers, and your insurance company, never admit that you were at fault for the motorcycle accident. Don’t even say that you feel okay, or you’re not hurt that badly. Anything you say can and will be used against you at a later date.
  1. Call an Attorney: The knowledgeable and experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Stevenson Klotz are there to explain your options after your Florida motorcycle accident. The sooner you contact an attorney after your accident, the more likely you are to recover the maximum amount of monetary compensation to which you are entitled.
