The Importance of Gathering Evidence and Building a Strong Legal Case

One of the most important tools you can have when it comes to fighting for compensation in a motorcycle accident claim is building a strong case based on evidence. When you work with a motorcycle accident attorney from the Law Offices of Jack M. Shapiro, we will conduct a thorough investigation into your accident to gather all available evidence.

However, there is a moment during which you can gather the most evidence and that is precisely when the accident happens and you are still at the accident scene, providing your injuries allow you to remain at the scene until police arrive. Otherwise, call 911 and have an ambulance transport you to a healthcare facility.

The police will evaluate the scene and issue an accident report. They will likely ask you questions and, when they do, your answers should be polite and to the point. There is no need for you to speculate as to what happened since whatever you say may later end up being used against you. Avoid the possibility of incriminating yourself and answer with short and courteous responses.

Exchange Information

Getting all the information on the other driver is essential. Focus on getting their contact details and also their driver’s license, insurance policy, and their vehicle’s make, model, year, color, and license plate. Keep in mind that, no matter how friendly the other driver acts towards you, they are not your friend. Do not engage in conversation with them since this may result in you giving them grounds to turn the case against you. Act politely but keep chatter to a minimum.

Document the Scene

Using your phone, take photographs of yourself and your injuries. Photograph your motorcycle and the damage that the other vehicle sustained, as well as their position on the road. Take pictures of anything that might have contributed to the accident such as an oil spill on the road or overhanging branches. Make note of any cameras that might have recorded the accident such as those present in retail establishments nearby. If your injuries allow it, approach them and ask for a copy of their video.

As soon as possible, write down everything that happened including the date, time, and location of the accident and anything else you do not wish to forget. Write it down or record it while it is still fresh in your mind.

If there are any witnesses around, get their testimonies as well as their contact information. You may want to reach out to them in the future when you file your claim. Keep all the information you gather in a safe and secure place.

Get Medical Attention

If your injuries are extensive and severe, request an ambulance to take you to the nearest emergency facility. If your injuries can wait, get a full physical checkup as soon as possible. You may have internal injuries that may turn out to be catastrophic if left untreated and you may not be aware of them. Make sure the doctor specifies in your medical record that these injuries are a direct result of the motorcycle accident in Vernon Hills.

Follow all medical instructions and keep a detailed file of your recovery and all the medical expenses you have incurred.

Inform the Insurance Company

The insurance company needs to be informed about the accident as soon as possible. They will want to hear your story but it is important not to accept any offer from them or sign any documents until you have had a chance to share them with your Vernon Hills accident attorney from the law office of Jack M. Shapiro.

Our firm is committed to providing all our clients with personalized and compassionate service and we will do the same for you. Schedule an initial consultation today and let us hear your story. We will fight for your legal rights and the maximum compensation to which you might be entitled. Call us today.
