What should I do right after a motorcycle accident?
When a car or truck hits a motorcyclist, it's often very injurious to the rider, if not fatal. The first step is administering proper medical aid and making sure there are no internal damages to the rider. This can only be done by medical professionals in a hospital setting with advanced medical tools. The next step is to protect the rider's rights by hiring a lawyer to start the investigation of the accident by finding witnesses while memories are fresh.

Do I need to see a doctor or go to a hospital after after being hit by a car?
The smart answer is of course! When a large vehicle made of metal and weighing 2-25 times the weight of your motorcycles hits you, there is an extremely high likelihood that you have sustained major injuries, even if not readily detectible or obvious. Further, the law states you need to mitigate your damages by making sure your injuries don't get worse due to your own doing or neglect. Thus, you must find out if and what types of injuries you have sustained. We can help you. Call us at (714) 321-9999.
When should I hire a lawyer for my motorcycle accident?
The statute of limitations for filing and injury claim in California is 2 years for injuries and 3 years for property damage. However, if you wait too long (more than 2 weeks) to seek medical help from your injuries from the date of the accident, you run the risk of insurance companies thinking it's not a legitimate injury. Why suffer in pain only to find out that not only things are getting worse but you're also no being believed. Seek both medical and legal help as soon as an accident occurs!
