What Should I Do After a Motorcycle Accident to Protect My Rights?

Don't try to tough it out when your rights are at stake. If you have suffered injuries from a motorcycle accident from the negligence of another person, it is essential that you take appropriate steps to protect your rights and pursue compensation.

First, you will want to get an examination from a doctor. If the accident was serious, you will likely be taken to the emergency room. If not, however, see a medical care provider at your earliest ability. Take heed of what they tell you to do and document the appointment, including pain, what was said, and any other notes that might be useful for your case.

While still at the scene of the accident, collect contact information of the drivers involved, their insurance company, and witnesses. Document all other important information as well, including license plate numbers.

If possible, get photographic evidence of the scene of the accident. Your smartphone will do just fine in taking a few pictures to be used as evidence.

At some point after the motorcycle accident, it will be important to obtain a police report. It might take law enforcement a few days to get the report together, but the sooner you can get this, the better.

Lastly but very importantly, you will want to get the help of a knowledgeable and trustworthy Sacramento motorcycle accident lawyer.

  • "I was down, and you helped me back on my feet. Thanks, Eliot!" — Rick, Placerville

In worst-case situations, cyclists die in the accident, or in the days and weeks following the accident. When this happens we often file wrongful death suits to compensate family members for their loss of a spouse, parent, companion or child.

If you are injured or disabled following a motorcycle crash caused by another party, you have the right to seek compensation. Eliot Reiner works with injured persons and surviving family members throughout Placer County and surrounding areas.

5 / 5 stars 
In the summer of 2011, a stroke of bad luck occurred and I was involved in an automobile vs. bicycle accident. Unfortunately, I was the one on the bicycle so I enlisted the professional services of Eliot Reiner to help me through the legal process that would transpire over the next two years.
Eliot and his staff did an amazing job representing me and my family's interests throughout the entire process. Here are a few things that I would like to share with you that set Eliot apart from the rest: First, Eliot has over 24 years of experience representing his clients in personal injury cases.

His attention to detail is truly amazing and his professional integrity to do the right thing at all times is uncompromising. Lastly, Eliot really does care about his clients and will go above and beyond the normal call of duty to advise his clients on all facets of life... not just legal matters.
