Following my motorcycle crash, are there things I should do to make sure my claim is strong?

If you were hurt in a Illinois motorcycle crash that was caused by the negligence of another driver, there are many things you can do to help ensure the strength of your personal injury claim including:

  • See a doctor as soon as possible. It is vital to seek medical treatment immediately after the wreck for your own health and for the strength of your personal injury case.
  • Collect evidence. If you are able to do so, take pictures on your cell phone following the wreck. The photographs should include the damage to your bike and the other driver’s car, as well as capturing the accident scene. Also, if there are any witnesses at the scene of the accident, ask for their contact information.
  • Do not discuss the case. It is critical to the strength of your Gurnee personal injury claim that you do not give a recorded statement to the insurance company or discuss the case with the other driver so that your words cannot be used against you.
  • Talk with an accident attorney. It is important to consult with a lawyer about your accident details, injuries, and what to say and not to say to the insurance company. Strategizing with an attorney can help make your case stronger and ensure a larger recovery for your injuries.
