If you or a passenger have been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you need a law firm that is experienced in personal injury and accident cases.

What should I do if I get into an accident while riding my motorcycle?

If you or your passengers have suffered injuries as a result of being struck by a car or other vehicle while riding your motorcycly, it’s important that you follow these steps:

  1. Call the police and make sure they file an accurate accident report listing all people involved.
