Many different types of road accidents can threaten the well-being of a motorcycle rider, from texting while driving accidents to drunk driving crashes.

How a hit-and-run motorcycle accident occurs
A hit-and-run accident occurs when a motorcycle and a car, truck or other motorcycle are involved in an accident and one of the drivers leaves the scene. The driver who leaves the scene of the accident may be liable for the injuries sustained by the motorcycle rider or passenger, but that person must be found.
In hit-and-run motorcycle accidents, a witness may be key to finding the driver who flees. Additionally, if you are able to, you should write down any details about the vehicle that leaves the scene, including the license plate and make and model of the vehicle. You can even use your cell phone to record a memo.
Be sure to contact the police, who can help track down the driver and also create an accident report that may be helpful in a personal injury case.
