- Never admit that it was your fault
- Note the driver’s name, address, vehicle registration number and insurance details
- Take names, telephone numbers and addresses of at least two witnesses
- Report the accident to the police
- If injured ensure that you seek medical advice from a hospital or your GP
- Photograph visible injuries
- Keep any damaged clothing and bike parts and try to obtain a written assessment of the damaged items
- If you incur any expenses as a direct result of the accident, make sure you keep a full record of these along with receipts where appropriate
