Support for Motorcycle Accidents


Motorcycle riders have just as much right to use the road as everyone else. Unfortunately, most drivers are not looking out for them. As a result, many avoidable motorcycle accidents occur every day. If you've been the victim of another negligent driving, you should be prepared. Take the following steps if you're involved in an accident:

  • Gather as much information about the other driver(s) as you can including name, address, driver's license number, license plate number, & insurance information
  • Obtain the name, badge, & precinct number of the investigating police officer & request the case control or accident report number
  • Document information about the motorcycle accident itself, such as how the accident happened, who is at fault, street layout, presence of traffic signs & signals, & any other relevant information
  • Talk to witnesses & collect names, addresses, & whenever possible license plate numbers
  • Take down the address or location of the crash scene & note other information about traffic, weather, & road conditions - if you think road design or maintenance played a part in the motorcycle accident, record that as well
  • Get photos of the scene, the vehicles, skid marks, & debris in the road, & anything else you think might be pertinent to your case
