Joel Bieber sold motorcycles at a Harley Davidson shop, to help put himself through law school. During those three years, he learned a lot about equipment and safe driving. Now, he couples that information with knowledge of the law, to effectively represent those who have been hit while riding a motorcycle. 

What to Do If You Have Been In A Motorcycle Accident

After a motorcycle accident, it is crucial that you act safely and intentionally. Follow these steps immediately following an accident to ensure you are setting yourself up for a successful motorcycle accident claim:

  1. Move to a safe and secure area.

    Immediately following an accident, it is important to secure a safe location if you are not too injured to move. By moving to a safe location, you are preventing further damages and protecting your best interest.

  2. Call the Police.

    The police will be able to file an accident claim and act as a resource moving forward with resolving your motorcycle accident claim. While the police will document the accident scene and gather information, do not rely on their report for your own accord of the accident.

  3. Exchange information with all those involved and document the accident scene.

    If you are able, it is extremely important to gather information from the other drivers, such as their vehicle registration and insurance information. We recommend that you take pictures of the accident scene, any vehicles involved, the surrounding areas, and gather the contact information of any witnesses.

  4. Seek medical attention and document your injuries.
