Contact an injury attorney who has handled car vs. bike accidents before speaking with anyone about the accident. This is an emotional and traumatic time in which facts can be confused or forgotten. This is not the time to make a statement or speak to an insurance adjuster. When you communicate with the insurance company, they are gathering information to be used against you later.
