Motorcycle accidents are an unfortunate part of riding motorcycles. Because many accidents involve passenger vehicles, they typically cause the victim to sustain severe injuries. It is not uncommon to suffer head trauma, broken bones, road rash and back injuries. These injuries often require attention from a medical professional.
For many accident victims, being involved in a motorcycle crash means suffering a large financial loss. This can be due to damage to the motorcycle, medical bills, and loss wages. Fortunately, these losses can be recovered by seeking compensation in a motorcycle accident lawsuit.
When seeking compensation there are a few things that will play an important role during the case. One of these items is a strong witness statement. To make sure you have what you need from your eyewitness you will need:
- Contact information. When speaking with an eyewitness at the scene of the accident, it is important to get his contact info. His name, phone number, address, and email address should be gathered to be able to get in touch later on.
- Statement. The witness should be able to give a detailed rundown of what exactly took place during the accident. The statement from the witness should be not only detailed but also as accurate as possible.
- Agreement. To be helpful, the witness should be on the side of the victim. He should be in agreement on not only what took place during the accident but also who was at fault.
Although a witness is not the only thing the case will be built on it is important that, if there is a witness, you should be able to get these three things from him.
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and sustained injury or financial loss you may be entitled to compensation. For free case evaluation, you need to call 800-800-5678 today or to fill out the contact form on this page.
