Consequences of a motorcycle accident
Because of the serious injuries they suffer, motorcycle riders have significant financial needs after an accident. Attorney Melvin Vatz has helped them obtain payment for their medical bills, lost wages, and other costs of their injury 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 our firm can help after a motorcycle 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 law firm 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 law firm works with injured clients to obtain the payment needed to compensate for medical bills, lost wages, and 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 Melvin Vatz and his law firm, are strong advocates for injured motorcycle riders. We serve western Pennsylvania, including Allegheny, Washington, Butler, Beaver, and Westmoreland counties.
