A Motorcycle traffic accident can be a very traumatic experience for those involved regardless of the severity of the crash. Injuries and fatalities bring a heightened sense of trauma. It is important that you know what to do before you are involved in an accident to be sure that you are taking the appropriate and necessary steps.

The following are crucial steps to take that will be helpful to you in the event of an accident.

If you have a camera, take photographs of the accident scene including any vehicle damage and any injuries to all parties.
Note the time of day, weather conditions, driving conditions, road construction, and other relevant information about the environment.
