Orange County Motorcycle Accidents
FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Even if I feel that I wasn’t seriously injured, should I seek medical attention?
Seeking medical care after an Orange County motorcycle accident is of the utmost importance, even if you feel that you can “shake it off” and go about your day. Some motorcycle accident injuries take hours, days or weeks to surface, and getting checked out by a doctor early on can help prevent future complications.
Should I contact my insurance company?
Yes, you will need to report the accident to your insurance company so you can receive the coverage you need.
What should I do immediately after a motorcycle accident?
Immediately after a motorcycle accident occurs, remain at the scene. If you leave the scene of an accident, you may face criminal charges for hit and run. The only exception would be if you are seriously injured and are rushed to the hospital, particularly if you are unconscious. If you are able, however, remain at the scene and exchange driver and insurance information with the other parties involved.
You will also need to call 911 to report the accident and should obtain the information of any witnesses present if possible. Taking pictures at the scene and noting down what occurred is also helpful, as this can help you retain a clear understanding of exactly what occurred and can help your attorney build your case. Another important step to take is to contact an attorney.
How can an Orange County motorcycle accident lawyer help me?
A lawyer experienced in handling motorcycle accident claims can help by protecting your rights and interests immediately in the wake of your accident. This includes in dealing with law enforcement, the other driver and your insurance company. Your lawyer can handle your insurance claim and can take your case to civil court if needed in the attempt to seek the highest amount of financial compensation possible.
What if the other driver was not insured or was underinsured?
If you were injured in an Orange County motorcycle accident with a driver who is uninsured or underinsured, your attorney can look to other resources for your financial damages. This may include your own insurance policy as well as any other possible sources, which may vary depending on your particular case.
