After being in a motorcycle hit and run, you are likely in for the fight of your life, especially if your injuries are very serious. These injuries are likely not going to heal on their own without some serious medical care. Further, you need an attorney who can help you negotiate with the insurance company, which is likely going to be yours if you are unable to identify the driver who hit you.
WHAT TO DO AFTER A MOTORCYCLE HIT AND RUN
After you have been hit while on a motorcycle who keeps driving, the first and most important thing to do is get the medical attention you need to make sure you are okay. This could mean being transporting by ambulance to a local hospital or it could mean walking yourself into a walk-in clinic or waiting until the following day to see your chiropractor or doctor.

From there, you must call the police and make a record of what happened. Or you may have to go to the police station in person yourself. Regardless of whether you go in person or wait for the police to come to you, you need to explain everything that happened to the police and recount what you do remember about the driver who hit you. This is the make and model of the car, the color, the license plate if you remember it, really anything that will help the police find the car and the driver who hit you. After you do this, then you need to notify your motorcycle insurance company and let them know about the motorcycle hit and run. They can then see if you have what is called UIM coverage, which stands for Uninsured Motorist Coverage.
