Avoid these common mistakes after a motorcycle accident in Georgia to make sure you are eligible to recover the full compensation you deserve.
What mistakes should I avoid after a motorcycle accident in Augusta?
I met recently with a man who was involved in a serious motorcycle vehicle accident on Mike Padgett Highway. In meeting with this client, I learned about some mistakes that he had already made in his case before consulting with me. If you’re reading this, you may have questions or need help in deciding what to do in your case. I’ll tell you what I told him.
One significant mistake he made was not to try to get the names, addresses, and cell phone numbers of any witnesses to the accident. You should always do this, and also try to take photographs of the scene that will help preserve the scene of the accident. There may be important information in those photographs. Also, seek immediate medical treatment, which this man had not done, and make sure you follow the doctor’s advice.
Lastly, the client had given a recorded statement to the insurance adjuster. I advise all clients not to give recorded statements to insurance adjusters because these insurance adjusters are trained to get information that is helpful in their case and is negative toward the injured victim’s case.
All these issues are time-sensitive, and I encourage all motorcycle vehicle accident victims to consult with an experienced attorney without delay. We’re experienced in motor vehicle accidents. If you have any questions, give us a call. We’d be happy to help you.
