With rising gas prices and temperatures, many people are choosing the more economical choice to get around on a motorcycle. There are many benefits to choosing to ride a motorcycle, but in the event of a motor vehicle accident, it’s important to know how to handle the events after your accident occurs.

At the scene of the accident it’s important to remember these simple steps.

  • Get yourself to a secure place and get yourself out of harm’s way.
  • Check yourself and others for injuries and call 9-1-1 if anyone is hurt.
  • Remain calm. This may be difficult, but it is important to maintain clearness of thought, so you can proceed with clarity.
  • Report the accident to local law enforcement if 9-1-1 was not contacted.
  • Do not leave the scene until you exchange relevant information with all parties involved. At a minimum, you should obtain the following details: property damage information with photographs or written descriptions; insurance and/or contact information; identifying information for the vehicles involved.
  • Take pictures of the scene without putting yourself in harm’s way.
  • Obtain information from any witnesses who are willing to provide it.

After you return home you will need to continue to deal with the aftermath of your motorcycle accident.

  • Contact your insurance company.
  • Contact your attorney for legal advice or questions.
  • Contact an expert on motorcycle accident injury treatment. You can count on the caring professionals from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
