If you're involved in an accident, it's important to get as much information as possible. However, personal safety is the first priority if you or anyone else has been injured.
Call for the emergency services if they are needed. If you decide to continue riding you must first check the condition of your motorcycle. Turn it off if it is still running and check for any fluid leaks. Check critical nuts, bolts and the handlebars, levers, forks, and wheels. Ride slowly as your bike may have suffered damage that is not immediately apparent.
If you’re injured or in a state of shock you may not be able to get all the information you need at the time. However, by returning to the scene of the accident at a later date – as soon as you can – you can make some notes and still provide some information.
This will assist your claim and help your insurance company obtain the best possible outcome at a later date. It’s recommended you carry a pen, paper and a digital camera. If you have a camera on your phone, use it to help you accurately record the accident details.
