Zipping along on a motorcycle exposed to the elements can be a recipe for disaster. There are no seatbelts or airbags to protect you, and it’s easier to lose control. If you wreck, you are seriously injured or killed in 8 out of 10 times.
The families of motorcycle riders know this fact all too well. One man’s life was tragically cut short when he “failed to negotiate a curve” and skidded into a guardrail this past November. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, his family may be entitled to legal remedies with the help of a Philadelphia motorcycle accident lawyer.
Just a few weeks later, another motorcyclist was injured in Lawrence Township, when he drove off the right side of the road, hit a ditch, and was ejected. A friend who was following him also lost control and was ejected. It is reported that an animal lurched out into their path, causing them to swerve. Police cited both for failure to control their vehicles.
The point is that motorcycle accidents are rife with legal repercussions. For instance, were you forced off the road by another driver? Was the road faulty and thus the local municipality or state bear some responsibility for the accident? Or what if you were the driver and a passenger was injured when you wrecked? The courts allow for personal injury claims and financial allotments for negligence, but the laws can be complex and confusing.
