Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in Johnstown, PA
Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcyclists suffer serious and sometimes life-threatening injuries in traffic accidents, and all too often it's no fault of their own. If you've been hurt or a loved one has been killed in a motorcycle accident, we understand the confusion and worry you must feel.
We understand because at Edgar Snyder & Associates, we've represented injured motorcyclists since 1982. That means our award-winning motorcycle lawyers know the legal claims process that follows a crash, and can help get money you desperately need for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Our Johnstown, PA lawyers also know that the steps accident victims take immediately following a motorcycle crash can make a huge impact on the potential success of your case.
These are the steps we recommend you take following an accident:
- Call 911 to report the accident and summon medical help if anyone is injured.
- Stand off the roadway, where you cannot be injured in a secondary accident as you wait for emergency officials to arrive.
- Don't offer your opinion on who caused the crash—which means don't accept responsibility for it, and don't place blame elsewhere.
- Get all relevant information from the other drivers at the scene, such as their contact, drivers', and insurance information.
- Write it down. Details like what the road or weather conditions were like might not seem relevant now, but could be important to your case later.
- Politely decline to give any type of statement to the insurance companies—yours included—until you've spoken to an experienced Johnstown, PA lawyer.
We know that when you're recovering from injuries suffered in a motorcycle crash, you're probably overwhelmed, anxious, and worried about your future. Unfortunately, the insurance companies also understand what a vulnerable position you're in and will likely try to take advantage of it to force you to accept a quick settlement. That offer could be far less than what you're eligible to legally receive.
Don't go it alone. Enlist the help of Edgar Snyder & Associates. Our attorneys are regularly listed as Pennsylvania Super Lawyers and ours has been listed as one of The Best Law Firms in America. When you hire us, you'll also have attorneys who are part of the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum on your team.

What You Should Do Following an Accident
We recommend calling one of our experienced attorneys if you or a loved one has been the victim of a motorcycle accident. But we also want to make sure you know what other steps you should take to protect your legal rights.
Report the Accident
It's one thing to alert your insurance company that you've been in an accident. It's another thing to provide details on how the crash occurred, how you were hurt, or the extent of your injuries. Report the accident as soon as you can, but NEVER provide a written or verbal statement until you've talked to a lawyer.
Organize Your Paperwork
The kind of insurance policy you carry—and the coverage it provides—will play an important role in your case. If another driver was involved in the crash, you need to obtain and understand their information, too.
It's also important to request a written copy of the police report documenting the details of your accident.
If you are having difficulty understanding the insurance paperwork, we can help. Representing people injured in accidents is what we do every day. Call us at so we can go over the details of your accident, and let you know whether or not we think you have a case for compensation.
Don't Talk to Another Driver's Insurance Company
It's important to use extra caution if another driver's insurance company contacts you for information related to the crash or your injuries. If you are contacted by someone else's insurance company:
- Don't give a recorded statement. Your words, as well as what you might not know about the extent of your injuries or the cause of your accident, can later be used to ruin your case.
- Don't provide details related to your health, injuries, or medical condition—and never give them medical authorization.
- Don't agree to meet with an agent in person and NEVER attempt to negotiate a potential settlement by yourself.
