Our Law Firm Will Gather Evidence for Your Case
Proving the cause of your motorcycle accident and the at-fault driver’s negligence depends on the evidence our team collects for you. Because our team understands the value of your evidence file, we make sure it includes:
- Medical records
- Law enforcement’s crash report
- Photos and videos
- Witness accounts
We will also add your written statement about your experiences since your accident. For example, you could note the changes in your physical appearance and abilities since the accident. These statements would show the crash’s toll on your state of mind and quality of life.
We Obtain Your Official Accident Report
Our investigation team obtains, reads, and reviews a copy of your crash report immediately. It will contain details about the direction you were traveling in, the road and weather conditions and points of impact, and the accident’s underlying causes. It will also contain:
- Accident date, time, and location
- Investigative notes and diagrams
- Police-generated photos and videos
In addition, your crash report will tell us how to contact the at-fault driver and their insurance company. It will also provide contact information for witnesses and their initial observations. We strive to locate and interview witnesses sooner rather than later to document their memories while they are still fresh.
We Locate and Interview Witnesses
Most people have smartphones these days and may intentionally capture the aftermath of your accident or unintentionally capture its cause. When we collect evidence for you, our team members canvass the accident scene and review your crash report to obtain contact information for witnesses who came forward.
In addition to witness statements, wherever possible, we also obtain access to any smartphone, dashcam, or residential and surveillance video that supports your case.
We Request Copies of Your Medical Records
Depending on the severity of your injuries, the medical care you require after a collision between your motorcycle and a full-sized vehicle can mean your medical records and bills come from various sources, including:
- On-site emergency medical care
- Ambulance transport fees
- Emergency room fees
- Hospital admissions
- Assistive medical devices
- Therapy and rehabilitation
You do not have to recover these documents on your own. Our motorcycle accident attorney will take care of collecting medical records and bills from every health care provider and facility where you were treated.
