Motorcycle accident guide


The reality is…if you’re a Texas biker, it’s not a matter of if you’ll be involved in an accident, but when. Knowing the right (and wrong) things to do at the scene can be critical to ensuring your immediate legal and financial protection as well as your physical and emotional well-being down the road.

Just follow these simple rules:

Rule #1

Remain at the Accident Scene

Unless your injuries require otherwise, don’t leave the scene of an accident until you have called the police and they have documented the accident. It’s important to obtain the other driver(s) name, address and phone number. Write down the license plate and registration numbers of the vehicle(s) involved in the accident. Ask the other driver(s) to show you their license, give you their phone numbers, their insurance company name and policy numbers. Obtain the names, phone numbers and addresses of all eyewitnesses. Don’t say you are not injured until you have seen a medical professional.

Rule #2

no statements

Do not discuss the accident with anyone except the investigating police officer, and then, only the basic facts. Statements made to your lawyer are confidential.

Rule #3

take notes & Pictures

Take notes of important details; draw a sketch, take pictures to preserve skid marks, the position of the vehicles and other physical evidence that will likely disappear after the accident.

Rule #4

insurance reports & Notifications

CALL BIKER LAWYER before speaking or giving a statement to anyone. Remember, insurance companies profit by denying claims.

Rule #5

claims made against you

Refer all claims against you to your biker attorney. Do not pay or promise to pay any claimant. Immediately forward all papers to your attorney.

Rule #6

claims made by you

An attorney is best equipped to advise you as to your legal rights to recover a fair and reasonable settlement. Protect your legal rights and seek competent legal advice.

Rule #7

We protect our own. Because we are passionate about riding, we specialize in motorcycle accidents.
