Motorcycle Rider’s 9 Step Accident Awareness Tips Handling Your Insurance

Take the following steps:

1. Get to safety… If you need medical attention, call 911. Are you being loaded into an ambulance? Ask to have the bike dropped off at Motorhelmets in Fullerton California – we’ll be waiting to take care of it.

2. Get a police report and call your insurance company to file a claim. Be sure to write down the claim number and the name and phone number of your insurance adjuster.

3. Don’t let the insurance company send an adjuster to your house to look at your motorcycle.

(You shouldn’t be taking your damaged motorcycle to your house, have it towed to Motorhelmets ASAP) Their job is to save the insurance company as much money as possible… and they don’t know bikes like we do.

Plus, once they look at it, they will put the burden on you to tow the bike to a repair shop, get repairs quoted, and to prove that damages are from the accident.

Again, tell them you want your preferred motorcycle shop (Motorhelmets) to assess the damages.

Then call or email us… Call: 714-879-8180 | Text: 657-217-3988

Our team will be ready to receive your bike.

4. If your bike isn’t safe to ride, just call us for a tow.

Don’t worry - your insurance company will pay for it.

We know how to tow your ride without damaging your bike further, unlike many of the big rollback truck drivers who are used to towing cars… They have no clue.
