Take photos of EVERYTHING.

Get contact details from anyone who may of witnessed, or of been involved.

pick up ALL the pieces from your bike, should you decide to repair it, it will make things a LOT easier.

Do not feel pressured in to tow trucks, or anything else of the sort.

DO go get checked over by a doctor, if you have any suspect you may of damaged something, especially when dealing with your head.

Replace your helmet if it hit the deck.

Make not of what caused the accident, and how best you can prevent it from happening in the future.

Makes notes of what people say (mainly other parties involved in the accident). Record them saying it if you must... (this WILL piss them off).

Be polite and curteous to everyone involved, it will help.

Call the police if you feel the need.

Call your insurance company ASAP if you plan on going through them.

Please add the things which I have missed :)

Technically any road traffic accident has to be reported, not whether you feel the need to or not. Any damage to any property needs to be reported as well, even street signs, etc.

Suppose that depends on what you define as a road traffic accident?
Would you call, falling over at a traffic light an RTA?

And if that is the case, then how about knocking the bike off my side stand whilst working on it?
Where do they draw the line?

If you are going to the extent of taking photographs and getting witnesses, that would in it's self suggest a situation far larger than a traffic light topple or knocking the bike of it's side stand.

Now I'm going to even correct myself as it is now phrased as a Road Traffic Collision (RTC), I should know better
