WHAT TO DO IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT
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.
EXPERIENCED PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS REPRESENT CLIENTS HURT IN MANY COMMON TYPES OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES
The statistics are in – and they are sobering. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are five times more likely to be seriously injured in an accident than those in car crashes. Further, bikers are 26 times more likely to die in a crash than people in a car accident. There are many reasons why motorcycle accidents occur and many of them involve the driver of the other vehicle simply “not seeing” the biker.
Unfortunately, regardless of the reasons motorcycle accidents happen, most have one thing in common. The injuries sustained by a surviving biker can be very severe and impact them for the rest of their lives.

COMMON CAUSES OF MOTORCYCLE CRASHES IN THE US
As we have investigated the causes of our clients’ motorcycle accidents over the years, certain themes have emerged. Over time, our motorcycle accident lawyers have discovered that, in general, many motorcycle crashes occur for reasons such as these:
The Driver of the Other Vehicle Didn’t See the Motorcycle: This, unfortunately, is a common cause of accidents. Bikes are smaller and easily hidden in blind spots.
Failure to Yield: The driver of a car, truck or bus — or another motorcycle rider — fails to yield to our client at highway entrance and exit ramps; at entrances and exits to gas stations, parking lots and parking garages; on city streets, county roads and state highways — when changing lanes, turning left or approaching intersections controlled by red lights or stop signs. After an accident, these drivers often claim that they had not seen the motorcycle before the crash.
Distracted Driving: Drivers of cars, trucks and buses are distracted while driving, either talking on cell phones, texting or referring to GPS (global positioning system) devices.
Roadway Hazards: Weather and roadway conditions can play a significant role in how an accident occurs
Merchandise: Defective motorcycle components and defective helmets can cause serious crashes

FAQ: CAN VICTIMS OF HIT-AND-RUN MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS GET COMPENSATION?
In many hit-and-run motorcycle accidents, the negligent driver is never caught. The victim is still left in need of compensation for medical costs, lost wages, decreased earning potential, emotional trauma, bike repair and other losses. In many cases, the victim is able to pursue compensation from his or her own insurance company. Our lawyers will review your motorcycle accident case to determine if this option is available to you.
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.
