The Down Rider Foundation is made up of motorcyclists and enthusiasts just like you, who embrace the thrill of the road – and who responsibly accept the risks inherent in riding. These enthusiasts have formed a non-profit organization dedicated to helping injured motorcycle riders through the short-term financial stress that often accompanies an injury accident.
We provide prompt short-term financial assistance to motorcycle riders who have been injured while riding, through no fault of their own, so that they can keep a roof over their heads, food on the table, and have basic transportation to get to the doctor until they can get back on their feet.
Having insurance, as you’ll see, is no guarantee of a financial safety net. Insurance companies are in the business of collecting premiums, not paying claims. Companies frequently use any pretext necessary to avoid paying a claim, even if you have been a reliable, long-term, claim-free policyholder. If you’re underinsured – or if your insurance company chooses not to pay your claim – you could find yourself in deep financial trouble. The Down Rider Foundation will be your safety net until your case is resolved.
