If you're hit, do you know what to do next?

Motorcycle crashes are among the most dangerous. As a rider, you're exposed directly to the impact of another vehicle, the road and other objects. Depending on the gear you're wearing, you could suffer from road rash, get a concussion or have other serious injuries, even if the collision was relatively minor.

There are things you can do to reduce the likelihood of an accident, like wearing bright or reflective clothing and trying to make eye contact with drivers, but there's no way to completely prevent every crash.

What should you do when you're hit by another vehicle?

In this case, your life could be hanging in the balance, so the most important thing is to do anything that helps you stay safe. If you're thrown from your motorcycle, it's best to stay where you are and stay still until help arrives. If it's not safe to stay where you are and you think you can move, do so slowly and as little as necessary.

Try to remember who hit you as well as the license plate number or driver's information. In some cases, drivers may leave the scene and flee, so being aware of who hit you could help you and the police find the person responsible for your injuries.

After a crash, always go to the hospital, even if you don't think you're hurt. The cost of your visit should be covered by the at-fault driver's insurance so that you don't have to worry about getting the care you need. Your attorney can help with the legal aspects of your case, so you can focus on recovering.
