After a motorcycle accident in Maryland, there are certain steps you should follow to get help and protect your rights. First, check yourself over, call 911 to report injuries, and don’t leave the scene of the accident.
Exchange contact and insurance information with the other motorists involved in the accident and get contact info from any witnesses. But don’t talk at length about what happened and don’t admit any fault.
Get medical assistance for your injuries and follow your doctor’s orders. Work with the police to obtain a copy of the police report but don’t turn it over to the insurance company yet, even if they hound you. Your next call should be to a qualified Maryland motorcycle accident attorney.
Make your health a priority as you recover from the motorcycle accident. Your lawyer can help you seek compensation for your medical bills, bike repairs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
