Southfield Motorcycle Accident Help
Even minor motorcycle accidents can be unsettling, due to the lack of personal protection surrounding the rider.

In Michigan, 141 motorcyclists were killed in accidents in 2016.
If you happen to have a motorcycle accident in Southfield, remember:
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION FOR YOUR MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURIES
If you are injured, seek immediate medical attention
- Injuries are usually more severe in a motorcycle accident
- Injuries that seem minor can turn out to be serious or life threatening
- Allow paramedics or doctors to perform a thorough examination to determine all of your injuries, no matter how minor they may seem
GET AS MUCH INFORMATION AS POSSIBLE AFTER YOUR MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT
If your physical condition after the accident permits, gather as much information as possible. If you are unable to do so, ask a companion, witness, or the responding law enforcement officer to do so.
- Time, date, and location of the accident.
- The license plate number of any vehicle involved, especially in a hit-and-run accident. You must prove that a motor vehicle was involved in the accident.
- Name, driver’s license, and insurance information of the driver of any other vehicles involved in the accident.
- Name, address, and insurance information of the owner of all vehicles involved in the accident. In a motorcycle accident, first-party benefits are paid by the vehicle owner/driver’s insurance company, not your own.
- Use your call phone to take photographs of the scene, all the vehicles involved, and your injuries.
- If you think you may need professional counsel regarding injury or damages caused in your Southfield motorcycle accident, contact The Mike Morse Law Firm.
