What type of evidence do you need to collect to win a motorcycle crash case in Virginia?

A motorcycle accident is different from a car crash. Because motorcyclists have only their clothes and helmet to protect them, their injuries tends to be more severe. If you are a victim of a motorcycle accident in Virginia and hope to obtain the compensation you deserve, you need to gather the right evidence.

It is important that you start by collecting evidence at the scene of your motorbike accident if this is possible. You may need this to establish the cause of the accident, the injuries you suffered and the amount of compensation you deserve to receive. Here are the kinds of evidence you should try to gather, if possible.

Police report

The police officer who arrived at the scene of the wreck will conduct an investigation and compile a police report. This report can contain useful information to help you support your version of the events that took place during the accident.

Pictures of the accident scene and witness information

Take photos of the damage to your motorcycle, the crash scene, skid marks, your injuries, weather conditions and anything else than may help strengthen your case. You may request a bystander to take photos if you are too injured to do so. Make sure that you get witness contact information from those who were present at the time the accident occurred.

Proof of your damages

You will need to prove the expenses and damages for which you’re seeking compensation. This can include the medical bills, proof of lost income as a result of the accident and repair costs for your motorcycle. Any of these damages can potentially be recovered after a crash, but you need to be able to show that the accident was responsible for these damages and expenses that you have incurred.

A motorcycle crash can have a long-term consequence for the victim. Relying on the skills of an experienced attorney can help you go through these difficult times and get the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.
