3 tips for handling a motorcycle crash in Colorado.

There are many things you need to do after a motorcycle crash, but at that time, you may feel too traumatized to do much at all. Keep in mind that if you're hurt, you should call for help and wait for medical assistance.

If you're not hurt, then there are several things you need to do. Educating yourself ahead of time makes it easier to remember these steps in the future.

Check on others involved in the crash.

The first thing to do is to check on the others involved in the crash. It's a good idea to make sure everyone is okay. If someone is hurt, do what you can to help the person until medical care arrives.

Collect Evidence

The next thing you should do is collect evidence. Get the other party's insurance information, name, address and additional identifying information. Get the car's license plate number and the driver's license for identification.

Get a Copy of the Police Report

Next, get a copy of the police report to review it for errors. If there are mistakes, you need to speak to the police about correcting them.

Motorcycle accidents can happen almost anywhere, and the likelihood is that the person on the motorcycle will be more significantly injured than those in their vehicles. Whatever you do, it's important first to call 911, so you know that help is on the way. Your health is the most critical factor, while everything else can be addressed later. Focus on getting the medical care you need, then worry about the rest later. Our site has more on the steps you should take if you're hit.
