After a Motorcycle Accident, Protect Your Rights
If you have been in a motorcycle accident you may be wondering what you should do to protect your case. There are some simple steps you can take to make sure your rights are protected.
- Do not repair or dispose of anything before consulting with a motorcycle accident attorney. If your bike is not kept in post-accident condition, your attorney may have difficulty establishing who is at fault and whether or not a products liability case exists.
- Be sure that your bike's location is secure and can be accessed by only a limited number of people. Otherwise the defense may claim the bike had been tampered with or damaged since the accident.
- Retain your owner's manual, maintenance manual, and repair information even if the bike is a total loss.
- If anyone at the scene of the accident identifies themselves as an eyewitness, take down their name, address, and phone number. It is not safe to assume the police will question everybody, and the witness may even leave before the police arrive.
