What should you do after a motorcycle accident in New Orleans?
The first thing to do in any accident is to make sure you and anyone else that is involved are not injured and don’t need medical treatment. Many times in accidents people are hurt but they don’t realize that because they are in shock. If you are not injured try to take pictures of the accident if possible and get the contact and insurance information of the other party.
You can also write down notes tor record any information that you may forget later. Next you should always wait or contact the police to file an accident report. The police report will be very important to your claim especially if you are not the at fault party. They can also reach out to emergency medical help if needed.
