Did you put your motorcycle down to avoid hitting a car that cut you off? Maybe you were run off the road or struck a car, curb or pole because a car cut you off but did not hit you.
The driver of the car may have done the right thing and stopped, but now you find that the police officer did not identify the car on the police accident report!
If you or a witness didn’t write down the license plate number, you can’t sue the driver because you don’t know their identity and you can’t file an uninsured claim because the car didn’t contact you or your motorcycle (But we still may be able to get money for you).
Why didn’t the police officers identify the other car on the police accident reports? Because they don’t understand the law. I just sent a letter to the NYC Police Commissioner requesting a change in their policy.
Until then, if you put your motorcycle down because of a car that did not contact your bike, take a photo with your cell phone of the car showing the license plate number; ask someone to write down the license plate number of the car; make sure that you get the names and telephone numbers of all witnesses and call us immediately at 1-800-487-8911.
Even if you don’t know the identity of the car that cut you off and there was no contact, we may be able to help you. We got money for quite a few clients in this situation! Just call us immediately at 1-800-487-8911.
