Motorcycle Accidents

Have You Been Injured by a Negligent Motorist?

Highways and roads in Pennsylvania can be a dangerous place for all motorists, but particularly deadly for motorcyclists. In fact, per vehicle mile traveled, bikers are about 37 times more likely to die and nine times more likely to be injured in a crash than passenger car occupants. Because the amount of protection between them and the road is significantly less than for passenger vehicle occupants, injuries are often very serious, and can range from broken bones and lacerations to brain injury, paralysis, and even death.

Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyer Helping You Navigate the Legal System

While motorcyclists often get a bad rap, the truth is that the vast majority of them are very responsible drivers, and they are often even more cautious than passenger vehicle drivers.
