San Diego Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accident San Diego Overview

Compared to occupants of passenger vehicles, motorcycle riders have little to no protection when they are struck by other motor vehicles. As a result, the injuries sustained by motorcycle riders are often quite serious, if not fatal. Even when the rider survives, the motorcycle accidents can be physically, emotionally, and financially devastating.

If you or a loved one have been in a motorcycle accident in San Diego, Walker Law P.C, is here to help. Our attorneys understand how to fight for justice for motorcyclists and represent their clients with passion, vigor, and the skill necessary to get them the compensation they deserve.

Steps You Should Take After A Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle riders may have many questions and be confused about where to begin after an accident. While the time following a motorcycle accident can be filled with emotions, victims should take the time to collect themselves as the actions immediately following an accident can make or break a case. The following actions are advised to take right after an accident occurs:

  1. Get out of the danger zone.
  2. Contact 911.
  3. Document the scene and take photos.
  4. Exchange information with the other party.
  5. Get the police report.
  6. Contact a lawyer.
  7. Prepare to give a statement to the insurance company.
