You knew that riding a motorcycle was a risk. You knew that if a car, a truck, or even another motorcycle hit you that the chances of being injured were significant. However, you did not expect to be hit and left there. You did not expect the driver who caused your injuries to leave you on the road.
What To Do When You Realize the Other Driver Has Left the Accident Scene
What you do immediately following your accident depends on the how badly you are hurt and the circumstances of your crash. If you are physically able to do so and your cell phone is still working then it is important to call 911 and to report that you were injured in a crash, the location of the crash, and the fact that the other driver left the scene of the crash. The police should come help you and try to find the other driver.
Unfortunately, it isn’t always possible for you to make that call. If you are unable to call then it is important to try to flag down another driver who can make the call for you and help protect you from further injury until the first responders come. Of course, if you are unconscious or otherwise not able to flag down a driver then you will have to wait until someone comes to your rescue.
