- Note the driver’s name, address, vehicle registration number and insurance details
- Take names, telephone numbers and addresses of as many witnesses as possible
- Report the incident to the Police
- Take photographs of the accident scene and visible injuries
- Keep any damaged clothing and bike parts and try to obtain a written assessment of the damaged items
