Motorcycle Accident

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcyclists are at a greater risk than any other driver on the road due to their relative lack of protection. Errors on behalf of a driver in a larger motor vehicle can lead to a serious accident resulting in severe injuries to motorcyclists.

After an accident, it can be difficult to remain calm, especially if you are injured. Depending on the extent of your injuries, there are a few steps that you should take. Once you have called law enforcement and requested medical attention, assess the situation to the best of your abilities. If you are able to, take pictures of your injuries and the damage caused to your motorcycle. In the event that an insurance representative shows up and tries to get you to sign anything, refuse to do so without a lawyer present.

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Tailgating
  • Failing to yield

  • Distracted driving
  • Disobeying traffic signals


“I was represented by David Mills in a civil litigation and was so impressed by his work ethic that even though at one time I thought we had no chance to win, he researched the case so thoroughly that we won and even his legal fees were very fair. I would definitely recommend him and his firm.”
— Bob D.
“Recently, I was represented by Scott McBride as a defendant in a minor, but not insignificant, legal matter. We had never met before and I had no experience hiring an attorney. Needless to say, I was nervous about what it would cost and what would happen next, etc. I am relieved to say that nervousness was quickly replaced with confidence. Scott was professional, yet approachable. He explained things clearly, offered opinions based on experience (without sugar coating it), and I always knew where we stood with the case. When he wasn't immediately available, his staff kindly helped me. Other law firms may have done an adequate job, too. But I'm glad I chose this one.”
— Eric M.
