Helping Clients After Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents usually result in serious injuries. The rider is unprotected by anything except clothing and helmet. The consequences of an accident involving a motorcycle include head and brain injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis, multiple fractures, burns, and extensive abrasions and contusions.
At our Philadelphia area law firm, the Law Offices of Maribeth Blessing, LLC, we help motorcycle accident victims obtain the compensation they need and deserve. Our personal injury attorney works hard to develop strong cases that lead to favorable outcomes. Our clients have received compensation for medical expenses, lost past and future income, punitive damages, loss of consortium, and the cost of durable medical equipment and home modifications.
Examples of Motorcycle Accidents
Although anything can happen to a motorcyclist on Pennsylvania roadways, the most common accidents include:
- Lane change accidents — cars and trucks not seeing a motorcycle when changing lanes
- Forced lay-down — rider forced to lay down the motorcycle to avoid being hit
- Failure to yield — driver of a car or truck not yielding because he or she doesn't see the motorcycle
- Following too closely — car or truck running into motorcycle because it was following too closely
How Our Law Firm Can Make a Difference
Our personal injury lawyer makes sure that clients who have been injured in motorcycle accidents obtain the right medical treatment. We investigate the insurance coverage of all parties involved — Pennsylvania law does not provide medical benefits under motorcycle policies. In some cases we work with accident reconstructionists to determine what really happened. In others we consult with medical experts to determine the extent and consequences of the client's injuries.
