Standing Up For Individuals Injured In Motorcycle Accidents

Anyone who drives a motor vehicle along Pennsylvania State Route 309, U.S. 202 or any of the other hundreds of roads, highways and interstates throughout the state are at risk of being involved in a traffic accident. While any driver or passenger who is involved in a crash or collision may suffer serious injuries, for motorcyclists, the likelihood that a traffic accident will result in serious and life-threatening injuries is much higher.

Nearly 900,000 Pennsylvania residents have Class M motorcycle licenses. For these individuals, what may start off as a scenic day trip throughout Southeast Pennsylvania can quickly turn into a major tragedy when distracted and speeding drivers fail to see motorcycles.

At Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford, we stand up for the rights of individuals who have been injured in motorcycle accidents. Our team of highly skilled personal injury attorneys helps injured motorcyclists and their family members recover the compensation they need and deserve after a traffic accident.

Why Are Motorcycle Accidents So Deadly?

With no seat belts, bumpers or air bags, when involved in a crash, motorcyclists and their passengers are much more vulnerable to suffering serious and debilitating injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Facial injuries
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Spinal and back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries

The doctor and hospital bills associated with treating these types of severe injuries can quickly total into the tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Additionally, many motorcycle accident survivors have ongoing and costly rehabilitative and long-term care needs and may be unable to return to work for months, if ever.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident in which an at-fault driver failed to see or provide you the right of way, contact a lawyer today to learn more about how we can help you recover compensation for your injuries and losses.
