Wyly & Cook Sponsor Motorcycle Accident Scene Training Class
Last updated Friday, May 5th, 2023
When it comes to motorcycle accidents, it’s better to prepare and prevent instead of repair and repent. Motorcyclists suffer at least 6 times more fatal injuries than car passengers.
At Wyly & Cook, we’ve helped a lot of victims recover by getting them compensated after a motorcycle accident. But we care more about making the roads a safer place for you so you don’t ever end up as a victim.
And we’ll even help you get the best coverage needed to cover all your losses in case you ever end up in a motorcycle accident.
Preparation is better than panic. If you’re trained to save a life and manage an accident scene before help arrives, you can secure your health and potentially save someone’s life.
That’s exactly why we teamed up with Road Guardians to host a successful motorcycle safety class at the Harley-Davidson dealership in Pasadena this weekend.
Thanks to Vikki Sanfelipo for providing this wonderful service to riders in the Houston area and across the country!

Learn All About Accident Scene Management (ASM)
Every second is critical after a motorcycle accident. Your response could make the difference between a life lost and a life saved.
There are four critical parts of accident scene management:
Preventing further injuries
Ever seen those monstrous multi-vehicle crash pile-ups on the news? All it took was one accident to start the mayhem. As long as you’re on the road, you’re not out of danger – even if you got away without a scratch.
You need to know how to make yourself visible and secure the motorcycle accident scene. We’ll also guide you about handling your motorcycle and how to move injured people if necessary.
Assessing the accident scene
It’s important to clearly review the accident scene before jumping into action. There are 4 kinds of motorcycle crashes and a variety of common injuries. These courses will help you brush up on the basics of anatomy and understand mechanisms of injuries.
Contacting emergency medical services
It’s true that emergency medical services provide the best first aid you can hope for. However, you can play a great role in ensuring they come prepared with the right kind of aid.
You’ll be trained to quickly and efficiently provide all the accident information they need to help you. You will be able to easily anticipate questions they’ll ask and get a faster emergency response.
Giving life-saving medical attention
You’ll learn the ABCs of trauma and how to do a head-to-toe analysis of injuries that require urgent attention.
We’ll give you a hands-on treatment crash course for clearing airways, rescue breathing, controlling bleeding, handling shock, and spinal motion restriction.
