How Soon After Being in a Motorcycle Accident Should I Call an Attorney
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you seek out medical attention, then call an attorney as soon as possible. Although this is a painful time, it may be worth you or your family taking notes or pictures of the scene, in order to properly remember the details of the accident. These facts may be crucial to proving your case. By getting an experienced attorney involved quickly, you increase the odds of winning because there is a greater likelihood that all of the relevant evidence will be preserved, the relevant witness statements memorialized in writing, and that an investigation of the accident scene can be accurately conducted.
Regardless of when you decide to retain an attorney, it is very important that you do not make any statements to the police, insurance companies or other driver(s) related to what you may or may not have done wrong. These statements will be admissible in court, and can be used against you when it comes time to prove your case.
