For some Pennsylvania residents, one of the appeals of a motorcycle, is its low maintenance costs. Motorcycles are typically less expensive to purchase and to ride than cars and trucks. Additionally, they have much higher gas mileage, so fuel prices are also lowered. However, these low costs come at the risk of a motorcycle accident.
Motorcycles are simply not as safe as larger vehicles. This is because they lack the safety features of other vehicles on the road. Without seatbelts, safety glass, steel cages and more motorcyclists are at significant risk of injury during a crash. If a motorcycle crash occurs, it can leave the victim with very serious injuries. These injuries can include spinal cord injuries, fractures, brain injuries, road rash, burns and more. It can be extremely expensive for individuals to recover from these injuries.
Motorcyclists are often left with large medical bills from such an accident. Also, as they recover, people may miss work and the wages that they count on to live. Making up for these expenses can be nearly impossible as individuals recover from the accident.
Nonetheless, if another driver was responsible for causing the motorcycle accident, then motorcycle accident victims have legal rights. The attorneys at our law firm understand these rights and how to enforce them.
We know that negligent drivers can be forced to pay for expenses related to a motorcycle accident. By filing a personal injury lawsuit, motorcycle accident victims can get the compensation they need to financially recover from a devastating accident.
There are many legal requirements that must be filled for accident victims to receive compensation. Our compassionate attorneys understand these requirements and how to get people the money they need.
