    Injury Claim in South Cave


    Five Steps of a Motorcycle Injury Claim in South Cave

    In order to ensure that your motorcycle injury claim is successful, there are a few things you must do, starting at the scene. It is worth memorising these so that should you be in an accident, you will know exactly what you need to do, both to keep yourself safe and to make sure that you have a chance of making an injury claim in South Cave later.

    Step One

    The moment after your motorcycle accident, you should pull over or move out of the road to somewhere safe, where your bike is not going to prove a hazard for any other vehicles on the road. If you don’t do this then you leave yourself open to further injury, as well as risking other drivers having accidents. You should then assess yourself and other victims for injuries. If the police and ambulance services need to be called then do so, and make sure that your injury is noted as soon as possible.

    Step Two

    Exchange insurance and personal information with the other driver involved in your accident. Although it can be awkward and not seem like the most important thing to do at the time, it is important for both of your insurance providers that you have each other’s information. Plus, if you are going to make an injury claim in South Cave, you will need to know who you are claiming against.

    Step Three

    Take photographs of the accident as soon as you can. If you have a camera or mobile phone with you at the scene, take photographs there and then of the road and any damage. If the road was the reason for the crash (it was icy, broken, or had oil spills evident) then you may be able to make an injury claim, but only if you can prove what state the road was in. If you don’t have something with you at the scene, return ASAP.

    Step Four

    Report the incident to the police. You always need to report a road accident to the police to make it official, and police reports can come in useful for your injury claim in South Cave.
