Motorcycle riders face dangerous exposure on their bikes, since they have little protection between them and the pavement. When a motorcyclist crashes with a larger motor vehicle, injured riders can suffer severe injuries such as:
These injuries can require hospital stays, surgeries, rehab, and a variety of expenses. Pennsylvania motorcycle accident victims may no longer be able to work and earn the money needed to cover the costs of recovery. In addition to seeking justice and compensation, filing a lawsuit can allow victims to hold the driver accountable for the carelessness that caused the victim’s injury.
Below are answers to some questions that victims ask us after they involved in a motorcycle accident.
Is my case similar to many other motorcycle crashes?
A motorcycle crash can happen for many reasons including very small errors. For example, drivers of larger vehicles sometimes fail to check before changing lanes on the highway. They may not allow enough space for motorcycle riders to maneuver. Some drivers fail to fully stop at intersections. With more than 90 percent of all motorcycle accidents happening on non-interstate roads, these mistakes can be fatal or cause severe injuries.
Do I need a Philadelphia motorcycle accident attorney specifically?
Within Pennsylvania are several cities with busy roads. The state also contains many major highways, farmlands, and suburban neighborhoods. An injured motorcyclist should get the help of an attorney who knows Pennsylvania inside and out. This knowledge is an important framework for building your case.
If your crash occurred in Philadelphia specifically, then an experienced Philadelphia motorcycle accident lawyer can make a big difference. He or she can explain the laws, your rights, and the next steps toward seeking justice.
