Riding down the highway on your motorcycle, it’s the perfect Saturday afternoon.

We also believe in education so here are some legal and safety issues you should know with regard to motorcycle accidents.
Liability in motorcycle accidents can usually be attributed to negligence. This means that a driver does not exercise reasonable care and acts in a careless or thoughtless manner. When determining negligence, the driver’s actions must be compared to those of a reasonable person. Negligence can include failing to check mirrors before changing lanes and speeding through a stop sign or traffic light.
Motorcycle accidents can cause many serious injuries such as broken bones, road rash, severe brain damage and damage to your back, neck and spinal cord. With experienced representation, you can recover all damages caused by the negligent driver. By proving the other party’s negligence, we can help you recoup your losses. This includes:
- Lost wages
- Future lost earnings
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Medical bills
- Damaged property
In the tragic event of a loss of life, we will provide sensitive and thorough representation and make sure close family members receive compensation for emotional pain and lost financial support.
Practicing motorcycle safety is paramount since on a motorcycle you are more exposed than the average driver. We encourage you to practice safe habits and adhere to the law. According to Pennsylvania and New Jersey law, you also must sometimes wear state-approved headgear and eye protection, or you may be subject to fines.
