Make sure everyone is okay. Check on everyone involved in the accident. If possible, apply first aid to those who have been injured.
Move away from the road. Get to a safe location, but stay at the motorcycle accident scene. Use hazard lights or flares to alert oncoming traffic and prevent further collisions.
Call 911. Unless nobody is hurt and nothing is damaged, get the police and an ambulance on the scene as soon as possible. The ambulance will bring immediate medical attention to those who are hurt. The police will fill out an accident report that may prove critical later. Answer questions truthfully when officers arrive — but do not make any admission of guilt.
Get medical attention. The sooner you can get treated, the sooner you can get better, which is ultimately the most important thing. With adrenaline flowing, you may not think you are injured. That might not be the case. Do not refuse treatment.
Doctor’s Orders: Follow your doctor’s advice as closely as you can, to demonstrate that you are making a good faith effort to recover from any injuries that you sustained. Also, do not leave out any complaint that you have when you talk to a doctor. Even minor aches and pains can develop into debilitating, chronic conditions. It is important to get those complaints documented as soon after a motorcycle accident as possible.
Gather information. Get names, addresses, phone numbers and license numbers from the other driver and witnesses. Get the other driver’s insurance information. If possible, take photographs of the motorcycle accident scene and injuries.
Contact a lawyer. The motorcycle crash attorneys of Proner & Proner offer free initial consultations and respond quickly to accidents throughout the country. We take fast action to protect your rights and start pursuing the compensation you need.


We pride ourselves on examining every motorcycle collision case from every angle to determine any possible routes of recovery. Our accident lawyers are happy to review cases involving bikers colliding with animals, because we realize these often result in serious injury or wrongful death. However, these can be extremely challenging cases.

If the accident involves a motorcycle rider hitting a deer, it is unlikely that there is anyone to take action against. The government is not responsible for controlling deer populations.

If the accident involves a motorcycle rider hitting a dog or being knocked off the bike by the dog, there may be an opportunity for compensation. Many states have leash laws that specifically requires dogs to be leashed and kept out of the road. If a dog is not on a leash and runs into the road, causing an accident, the dog owner could be held accountable.

If the accident involves a motorcycle rider colliding with livestock, there may be avenues for compensation. The owners of the livestock may be obligated to keep the livestock from straying onto a road or highway. If they failed to fulfill that obligation, they could be held accountable for the harm caused by their animal.

According to a study sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the most frequent motorcycle accident occurs when a passenger vehicle obstructs the right-of way of the motorcyclist at an intersection. This generally entails a passenger vehicle turning left in front of an oncoming motorcycle without looking to see it coming. While this sort of incident should concern all who operate a motor vehicle or motorcycle, the results are much more devastating for the latter.

It seems quite simple, but the best way to avoid this nightmare scenario is to be aware. Always be cognizant of your positioning on the road so that you can have a clear sight of left-turn lanes and oncoming traffic. Keep your distance from a driver in front of you so he or she doesn’t impede your view as well. You’ve heard it time and time again, but it’s important that you don’t speed. Not only does this make it more difficult for them to see you when turning, but it’s also more difficult for you to put the brakes on in time. The window for you to find your escape route in a vulnerable situation is limited, so try to maximize it as much as possible. Also, if a light just turned green for you, the motorcyclist, then it must have just turned red for an anxious driver trying to beat the light at an intersection. Make sure to keep your bearings in such a circumstance.

However, even with taking these precautions, some accidents are unavoidable. If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, call us at (212) 986-3030 and you may be able to receive compensation for you injuries.

What not to do after a motorcycle accident

The wrong move can make it extremely difficult to get the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies are looking for opportunities to limit or deny you compensation. We encourage you not to give them any.

  • Do not make a statement to or sign anything given to you by an insurance agent. Do not even talk to an insurance agent. When you discuss the accident to the police, be very straightforward and limit your discussion to the facts.
  • Do not apologize to or argue with the other driver. Limit your discussion with the other driver to an exchange of information. Do not sign anything.
  • Do not get your bike repaired. Doing so before an attorney has had a chance to have the bike properly inspected and photographed is essentially erasing one of the most important pieces of evidence in your case.
