Welcome Riders and Visitors:

OperationBikerDown.org® is a nationally recognized all volunteer 501 (c) (3) nonprofit charitable foundation that advocates on behalf of injured, disabled, and fallen bikers and their families. Built for and by bikers and their families.

Our purpose is to provide FREE unlimited resources, support, guidance and short-term financial assistance to injured & disabled bikers and their families that suffer from the result of an injury, illness, chronic pain, disability and death. Best of all, membership is absolutely free for all. 100% of all donation funds are put directly to work for those who need it most.

Since 2009, we have been the official injury & disability benefits website for all. We are proud to have served millions of people and their families in their time of need, providing them with easy, online access to information and eligibility criteria for local, State and Federal benefit and assistance programs.

Our mission remains the same as it was when we began: reduce the time and difficulty of injured, disabled and fallen bikers and their families searching for resources while increasing access to support and benefit information.

The site’s core function is the community support groups and forums, a tool that allows bikers to interact with other injured, disabled, and fallen bikers as well as service providers, and industry professionals who are also dedicated to our cause.

The Realities of Injury, illness, chronic pain, disability and death!

Did you know that, every , a rider is injured or killed in the United States—a country where most families live paycheck to paycheck? In fact, 50% of all home foreclosures occur as a result of income loss after disability. Social security disability benefits only pay about 33% of your lost income. And as if that weren’t hard enough, these vital benefits are denied to injured & disabled riders over 60% of the time.

Motorcycle Accidents Facts and Statistics

 

Motorcycle Fatalities Facts & Statistics: 

Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than cars and often have high performance capabilities. When motorcycles crash, their riders lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle, so they're more likely to be injured or killed. The federal government estimates that per mile traveled in 2014, the number of deaths on motorcycles was over 27 times the number in cars. 1
 
Because serious head injury is common among fatally injured motorcyclists, helmet use is important. Helmets are about 37 percent effective in preventing motorcycle deaths 2 and about 67 percent effective in preventing brain injuries. 3 Yet only 19 states and the District of Columbia mandate helmet use by all riders.

What’s more is that injury, illness, pain, disability and death doesn’t just affect income; it damages relationships within families and drains the joy from our lives. The physical and emotional effects of this stress and isolation lead to depression and mental illness. 

Join and start the process of recovery. We know what you’re going through and what you need to pull through, because we are injured & disabled workers ourselves. Get the help and information you need to put the pieces of your life back together. Through the community of vital support and resources, you can take a step toward change.

The National Discount Drug Card

National Drug Card, was created to help people with little or no prescription drug insurance to save money on their prescription drugs.  This includes, but is not limited to, injured & disabled workers and their families, veterans, senior citizens, on fixed incomes and Medicare; self-employed business-people who have to pay their own medical costs; families; college students; and those who have recently lost their jobs and benefits and may be struggling financially.

Additionally, many people who have prescription benefits use our card to receive discounts on drugs not covered by their prescription plan (e.g. dermatology, elective procedures, weight loss, anti-smoking, and hormone therapy drugs).

Our Free Discount Prescription Card can save 10% - 85% on all FDA approved brand-name and generic drugs.  The card can be used at over 58.000 pharmacies nationwide including:

CVS, WALGREENS, RITE-AID, WAL-MART, TARGET,  KROGER, K-MART, PUBLIX, SAFEWAY, COSTCO, SAMS and many more including local independent pharmacies and regional chains.

OperationBikerDown.org is proud to provide our FREE prescription drug card to millions of people across the country to help them reduce their healthcare costs. We hope this money savings card will benefit you, your family and friends.

If you have been injured, disabled or a family member that has had a motorcycle accident and fatality, you know how difficult it is to find the help you need. The lack of resources and support can turn your life into a shell of what it once was. But you don’t have to fight this alone. We connect people who have experienced a injury, illness, pain, disability and death first hand. We understand what you’re going through: the frustration, fear, and hopelessness. But here, you will unite with a community of peers and professionals who have joined together to fight back. 

We believe our ideas can change the world, and we want to let other people know how they can join in and make all of our lives better.” – Jon A. Arbay, Executive Director & Founder of OperationBikerDown.org®
