Motorcycle Accidents

Jones & Hill law firm is experienced in representing people injured in motorcycle accidents, and  will work with you to determine damages and help you get the compensation that you deserve. Serious injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents often result in large medical expenses and suffering.

What can you do if you are involved in a motorcycle accident?  Before contacting an attorney, follow these simple tips that will help protect your rights, and potential compensation, when involved in this type of accident.

  • Never leave the scene of an auto or motorcycle accident
    Even a minor fender bender can cause damage and injury so be sure to stay at the scene of the motorcycle accident and follow the steps provided below.
  • Call the police
    Always call the police. A police officer will be able to gather all the necessary information from parties involved to properly document the facts of the motorcycle accident. By involving the police, you are creating an official record of what has transpired and determine fault.
  • Be sure to provide the necessary and accurate information to the police and refrain from making any additional statements until you consult Jones & Hill law firm.
  • Gather information
    While the police will gather information from all parties involved, be sure to gather information for your own records as well. Be sure to include the following:

    • Names and contact information for all parties involved in the accident (e.g. telephone numbers, address, email address)
    • Drivers license and license plate numbers for all parties involved
    • Names and contact information from any witnesses to the motorcycle accident
    • If you have a camera handy or a camera on your cell phone, take pictures of the vehicles and motorcycles involved and the scene of the accident.
  • See a doctor
    If you are hurting, we recommend consulting with a licensed medical practitioner to properly document any injuries sustained as a result of your wreck. Relatively minor accidents can result in severe injuries, requiring hospitalization, doctors’ visits, physical therapy and even surgery leaving you with significant medical costs. It is important for you to consult a personal injury attorney at Jones & Hill law firm to ensure that you are protecting your rights with regards to these medical expenses.
  • Determining who is at fault

Even though you have followed all of the advice listed above, turning to experienced accident attorneys at Jones & Hill law firm, who know personal injury law, is key. Contact Jones & Hill law firm immediately to determine if you have a case and what your next steps should be.  If you don’t act fast, you run the risk of evidence being lost, witnesses disappearing and potentially receiving less compensation for your injuries.
