What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident Injury
I have helped clients across the state of Kansas receive fair compensation for their motorcycle accident injuries. Many bikers who have personal injuries caused by other vehicles will need to do the following to ensure their legal rights are protected:
Stop: Once you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important you stop. Failure to stop may constitute a felony charge or hit and run.
Check to See if You and Other People Have Been Injured: It’s important to call the police and an ambulance if necessary. Medical treatment should be obtained for injuries.
Do Not Admit Fault: The police need information about the accident, and if you admit fault to anyone, including the police, insurance company, or other drivers, the statements can be used against you. You have the right to obtain compensation for your injuries, and admitting fault gives the police and insurance company reasons to NOT compensate you.
Gather All Names of Drivers and Witnesses: They can provide testimonies.
Obtain Pictures of the Accident: This can be used as evidence.

Important information if you are injured by a hit and run or uninsured automobile in Kansas:
Every auto and motorcycle policy in Kansas includes at least $25,000 in insurance to protect you if you are hit by an uninsured vehicle. (Note: You may specifically, in writing, waive this required coverage when you first take out your policy.)
If you own more than one vehicle, you get to take the highest uninsured motorist coverage available. (Example: Your motorcycle has $25,000 uninsured motorist coverage and your car has $100,000 uninsured motorist coverage. If you are hit on your motorcycle by an uninsured or hit-and-run motorist, you will have $100,000 coverage. Warning: If you waived the uninsured coverage on your motorcycle but have it on your car, you will not be able to get the uninsured driver coverage from your car.)
Your insurance may deny coverage if you cannot provide some proof (other than your own statement) that the accident was caused by a vehicle that left the scene.
