What causes motorcycle accidents?
The courts of Pennsylvania have long recognized the danger posed by motorcycles to both their operators and to others on the roadway. Pennsylvania courts have gone so far as to reference motorcycles as being an “instrument of danger” on highways. The truth is that motorcycles are only dangerous because negligent car drivers act irresponsibly.
Other drivers often think motorcycles are little more than an annoyance on the roads. They don’t treat motorcycles as they would another vehicle. Or they simply don’t see motorcycles, and the reason they don’t see them is because they were not paying attention. The result is an accident that can leave motorcyclists seriously hurt.
Drivers who cause motorcycle accidents may have been texting or were distracted by something else. They may have been speeding or driving recklessly. In some cases, they were operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Our attorneys know how to hold negligent drivers accountable and help you recover compensation.
What types of injuries are caused in a motorcycle accident?
Motorcyclists aren’t surrounded by a metal frame like car drivers and passengers, nor do they have airbags or seatbelts. They basically only have a helmet and the clothes they are wearing. Because of a lack of protection, a motorcyclist can suffer serious injuries when struck directly by a car or if thrown to the ground by the force of impact.
Injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident may include broken bones and injuries to the head, neck or back. Other injuries include nerve damage known as rider’s arm. Motorcyclists can also suffer serious skin injuries known as road rash. Recovery from these injuries can take months or longer. Some injured motorcyclists are left with a permanent disability.
Injured motorcyclists may require surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and several follow-up visits with doctors. The medical expenses can become overwhelming very quickly. Our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers fight to get you the treatment and the financial compensation you deserve.
