Consequences of a Motorcycle Accident
Because of the serious injuries they suffer, motorcycle riders have significant
financial needs after an accident.
Our attorney can help obtain payment for:
- Medical bills
- Physical or emotional therapy
- Lost wages
Expenses associated with
wrongful death incidents
- Other costs of injuries after an accident
We have helped motorcycle riders who have suffered multiple broken bones,
head and brain injuries, and serious skin abrasions requiring skin grafts. Other clients have
come to us with significant orthopedic injuries necessitating months or
years of physical therapy and numerous surgeries.
How We Help After an Accident
The insurance laws of Pennsylvania do not require motorcycle riders to
carry medical insurance, and most riders do not. Not only are those expenses
likely to be significant, but there is also no medical coverage in most
cases. It is critical that an injured rider obtain compensation for medical
expenses. This is more likely when the rider has an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.
Our personal injury lawyers and investigators analyze the evidence, take
photos of the scene, and interview witnesses. In our experience, drivers
of cars and trucks often do not look out for motorcycles. They are simply
unaware that the motorcycle is on the road. When they change lanes or
make a right turn into the path of a motorcycle, the rider is forced to
lay the bike down to avoid being hit, causing significant injuries.
Many riders are unable to avoid turning vehicles that do not see the cycle,
and are hit directly, with resulting catastrophic injuries. Whatever the
cause of the accident, our lawyers work with injured clients to obtain
the payment needed to compensate for their pain and suffering.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact a lawyer
with the experience and resources to obtain the compensation you need.
Although the outcome of every case is different, clients know that the
Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz is a strong advocates for the injured.
