MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS LAW PENNSYLVANIA
In recent years, as gas prices have risen motorcycles have become an even more prevalent sight on the streets of Philadelphia, due to their greater gas mileage, their compact size makes them easier to maneuver and definitely easier to find parking for. Unfortunately, with the increase in motorcycles on the road there has been a corresponding increase in motorcycle accidents.
Motorcycles carry a much greater risk then automobiles that they may be involved in an accident and that any injuries resulting from an accident would be severe, due to their:
- Smaller Size and diminished visibility to other vehicles
- Road Hazards potholes and debris
- Instability especially at higher speeds.
- Exposure of Rider to Injury
- Effect of Inclement Weather
People who were injured in a motorcycle accident have all of the same rights and protections under Pennsylvania law as those in automobile accidents. Unfortunately, insurance companies have a history of denying claims and undervaluing claims submitted by those who were injured in a motorcycle accident.
