Bucks County Motorcycle Accident Claims
Motorcycle accident injury in Bucks County
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 5,000 motorcyclists died and more than 103,000 motorcyclists were injured in U.S. traffic accidents in 2007. Many dangerous roadways in Pennsylvania result in motorcycle accidents, including the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Interstate 95.
In 2007, Pennsylvania's WGAL-TV reported an increasing number of deadly motorcycle accidents in our state, with the number of fatal motorcycle crashes in Pennsylvania rising more than 30 percent between 2002 and 2006. This is why news headlines like these are all too common—
Motorcyclist in critical condition in I-95 accident
In July 2008, Interstate 95 in Philadelphia was shut down after a car and motorcycle collided at dawn. The motorcyclist was critically injured due to severe wounds on his arms and legs.
Pennsylvania man killed in motorcycle wreck
In May of 2010, a Pennsylvanian was killed when his motorcycle crashed into a mailbox and fence. Though transported to the hospital, he succumbed to his injuries and died. As this story shows, injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are often far worse than those sustained in a comparable car accident, because the motorcyclist is unprotected.
After a Bucks County motorcycle accident injury
If you are seriously injured or a family member is killed in a motorcycle accident, you may now be struggling with the devastating aftermath, including—
- The physical consequence (fractures, brain injury, neck injury, back injury, or paralysis)
- The financial consequences (lost wages, enormous medical bills, ongoing physical therapy)
- The emotional consequences (fear, anger, loss of companionship, loss of self-worth)
The sad fact is that victims of motorcycle accidents are often not compensated fairly for their losses, even though they are often entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, property damage, and for permanent injury or disfigurement.
