What do I do if I have a motorcycle accident?
Being involved in an accident can be a stressful experience, so we’ve created a step by step guide to help you know what to do.
- Firstly, make sure everyone is safe. In an emergency call 000 for police and ambulance assistance, for example if there's major damage, a person is injured or debris is blocking the road. You can also call 000 if anyone involved has failed to exchange details.
- Ensure you are in a safe location away from traffic. If possible, try to prevent further loss or damage by moving your motorcycle off the road and putting your hazard lights on.
- Record the following details:
- date, time and location of the accident
