FAQs About Motorcycle Accidents

Are There Important Steps to Take — and Things to Avoid — After a Wreck?

If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident and are wondering how to find the best motorcycle accident lawyer, and what steps you should take, we can help. The basics include:

  • Prioritize your own and others’ safety right away if you are able by clearing the roadway, giving assistance and calling for help.
  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible.
  • If you are in good enough shape to do so, take pictures of the accident scene and do what you can to preserve evidence and get information from witnesses.
  • Do not discuss fault for the accident with anyone, give a statement to insurance company representatives or sign anything at all without consulting a qualified lawyer.

What If I Am Sore But Believe My Injuries Will Heal on Their Own?

There is a good chance you have been extremely fortunate. However, please do not underestimate the potential seriousness of sore joints, a sore back, or especially any type of head injury. This is not the time to “tough it out,” because many injuries become apparent or worsen in the days after a crash and you could find yourself facing major medical expenses. Please get checked out.

How Much Will It Cost for a Lawyer to Represent Me After a Crash?

When you turn to our attorneys for honest, experienced legal counsel, there are no up-front fees and you take no financial risk. If we believe your claim is valid and can represent you, we will do so on a contingency basis, charging only a percentage of the settlement or verdict when we succeed on your behalf. If there is no recovery, you owe nothing.
