There is something wonderfully freeing about riding a motorcycle in Colorado. It gives you the sense that you are one with the road, nature and your surroundings. But riding a motorcycle isn’t all flowers and roses, as each time you get on the bike, you are taking risks on the road. It’s important to be a cautious driver, following the rules and driving defensively, but what if that’s not enough?
If you are a motorcycle rider in Colorado who has recently been involved in an accident with an Amazon delivery driver and they were the negligent party, then you could have a strong Denver, CO personal injury claim. Here are the tips you can use to help prove they were negligent in the accident.
Call the Police Immediately After the Accident Takes Place
The first step to take after any traffic accident is to call the police. By doing this, they will write out a report, which will be essential in building your personal injury claim. This will be an official document that can be submitted as evidence.
Take as Many Photos as Possible at the Scene
While a police report will be very important to your claim, photographic evidence is also incredibly strong.
A few things to focus on with your photos include:
- Close-ups of your injuries
- The damage to your motorcycle
- The accident scene from far away and close-up
- The delivery driver’s vehicle
- The license plate of the delivery driver
- Contact information and insurance details of the delivery driver
- License plate and contact information of witnesses
Seek Medical Attention – Get Everything Documented
Adding to your paper trail of evidence, you also want to seek medical attention at the nearest Colorado-based clinic/hospital. Again, this will provide you with official documentation that can support your personal injury claim. Within your medical report/files will be the details of your injuries, what they were caused by and your treatment plan.
Because the aftermath of your injuries may be ongoing, you’ll need to keep careful records not just of the medical files but of the bills related to treatment. These costs will factor in to how much compensation you ask for.
