Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Ebensburg, PA
Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcycle accidents are among the most devastating on the road, causing catastrophic injuries that can last a lifetime. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured in a motorcycle crash, we don't need to tell you all the stress and worry that comes afterward.
At Edgar Snyder & Associates, we've represented—and have advocated for—motorcyclists since 1982. We know how confusing the aftermath of a crash can be. However, it's important to understand that there are steps you can take immediately following a motorcycle accident that will help protect your rights, and possible legal compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Here are seven things to do following a motorcycle accident:
- Call 911. Immediately report the accident to police, and request medical treatment if anyone involved in the crash is hurt.
- Get to a safe space. While you wait for police or first responders, make sure you are a safe distance from the roadway.
- Keep your opinion on the crash to yourself. Don't take any blame for causing the accident. Also refrain from blaming another driver.
- Exchange information. Make sure you exchange contact, insurance, and license information with all other drivers involved in the crash. Also: Request the name and contact information for the responding police officer so you can obtain a copy of the accident report later.
- Write it all down. Even the tiniest details of your crash may later help build your legal case. Write down everything you can remember from the accident.
- Don't provide crash or injury details to insurance agents. Don't give a verbal or written statement to the insurance companies—including your own—until you talk to an experienced Ebensburg injury lawyer.
- Call an experienced Ebensburg motorcycle lawyer.
Insurance companies deal with motorcycle injury claims every day. They can twist your words around, and take advantage of what you don't understand about your injury, the claims process, and your legal rights.
When you've been injured in a motorcycle accident, we know you're probably confused, worried, and frustrated—and already in a tremendous amount of pain. Medical and other bills are likely piling up at a time when you don't know when you might be healthy enough to return to work.
When you hire Edgar Snyder & Associates, you can rest assured you'll have top-tier legal professionals fighting to get you the compensation you deserve. We've been honored as one of the Best Law Firms in America and our attorneys are consistently named to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers list.

What You Should Do Following an Accident
While consulting with a skilled Ebensburg injury attorney is important, it's not the only step you should take following a motorcycle accident. Here are some other things you need to do following a crash:
Report the Accident
Don't be confused: While you need to report the accident to your insurance company as soon as you are able, you do not need to give a recorded statement. If either your insurance company or the other driver's asks you for a written or verbal statement, it is your right to say, "No, thank you" until you seek the advice of a skilled injury attorney.
Organize Your Paperwork
Be sure to find and read your auto insurance policy to understand your coverage. If the crash involved another driver, be sure that you obtain their insurance, contact and license information. It's also important to ask for and retain a copy of the police report detailing your crash.
If you or someone you care about has been seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident, and you need help making sense of your insurance coverage, we can help. Call us at 1-866-943-3427 today. Our caring legal team will help you understand your policy, coverage, and best next step for your case.
Don't Talk to Another Driver's Insurance Company
If another driver's insurance company reaches out to you:
- Do NOT provide a recorded statement—it can be used against you later.
- Do NOT give them details related to your injuries or medical condition. NEVER give them medical authorization.
- Do NOT agree to meet an insurance agent in person.
- Do NOT begin negotiating a settlement before calling an attorney.
