What should I do immediately following my motorcycle collision?
It’s very important to seek medical attention. If you’re unable to speak with a lawyer right away, don’t answer any questions about the crash until you have done so. If possible, document the scene of your wreck and gather evidence, such as witness statements, police reports, and medical documentation.
Should I speak with insurance companies after my Baton Rouge motorcycle crash?
You can notify your insurance company that you’ve been involved in a wreck, but don’t answer any of their questions about the crash or allow them to record your statements. These are the first things they’ll request, but submitting to them isn’t often a good idea. Your attorney can speak with insurers on your behalf.
