Helping Injured Motorcyclists in Pennsylvania & New Jersey
Motorcycles are a common means of transportation as well as a recreational activity for many people in this country. The number of registered motorcycles continues to steadily increase each year. Unfortunately, as with other motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents can and do occur and automobile accidents involving a motorcycle tend to be more deadly.
Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that motorcycle accidents accounted for 4,612 fatalities and 81,000 injuries in the year 2011. Pennsylvania figures for the same year include 199 motorcyclist deaths and 3,603 injuries to motorcyclists. Philadelphia motorcycle accident lawyers at Geoffrey B. Gompers & Associates have extensive experience in helping riders and their families with motorcycle accident claims obtain the compensation to which they are entitled under the law.
Motorcyclists More Vulnerable to Traumatic Life Changing Injuries
Motorcycle accidents are unique in that they can be extremely dangerous and have the potential to cause the most severe life altering injuries of any motor vehicle that uses our nation’s roadways. With motorcycles offering limited protection from impact as compared to other motor vehicles, injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident are often very serious. Injuries can include lacerations, road rash, burns, fractures, severed limbs, internal injuries, brain damage, spinal cord injuries, neck injuries and even death. Many of the injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident can require months or even years for the injured victim to fully recover while others may suffer lifelong permanent disabilities.
Injured motorcycle accident victims require and deserve a qualified and skilled motorcycle accident lawyer on their side to protect their rights. Often times, individuals operating a different mode of transportation such as a car or truck are negligent and disregard the rights of motorcycle drivers. In the event that another motorist’s carelessness or negligence results in an accident, a motorcycle injury victim may have the right to recover compensation for their losses including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost earnings, ongoing future medical treatments, and property damage.
