What to do after a motorcycle crash

How bad is the bike

Getting into a motorcycle accident is something that no rider wants to encounter.  It can be very scary and dangerous. For a lot of us the thought of having an accident isn’t about how hurt we are, its how bad is the bike? Below I have listed a few steps that I think are the best way to handle a motorcycle accident.

  1. Make sure you’re ok. Did you hit your head? Are you bleeding? Was anyone else involved?
  2. Call 911 if you are injured or anyone else involved is. Its important to call the police anyway.
  3. Take pictures of the accident.
  4. Obtain a police report. This doesn’t mean you’re in trouble, this just means that the officer will be able to come up with an honest report, if you have to protect yourself.
  5. Move the bike out of the way.

Hopefully you’ll never have to use these tips, but if you do, they’ll ease the pain of the accident.
