Philadelphia, PA (July 1, 2022) – On Friday evening, July 1, officers were reportedly dispatched to the site of a deadly motorcycle accident that took place in the Bustleton area.
Authorities say a motorcyclist was killed after he collided with another car on Friday night in the 1000 block of Bustleton Avenue, shortly before 6:30 p.m. Police said a black Yamaha motorbike driven by a 32-year-old male collided with a blue Chevrolet Malibu.
The unnamed motorcyclist received fatal injuries and was declared dead at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle stayed at the scene to cooperate with Philadelphia Police, but immediate arrests have not been made.
We extend our deepest sympathies to the deceased victim’s family.
Deaths From Motorcycle Accidents in Philadelphia
Motorcycle accidents are infamously among the worst in Pennsylvania. When they occur on large roads and in major cities such as Philadelphia, these crashes are exceedingly hazardous.
These motorbike crashes may have severe, even fatal repercussions. According to recent research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle wrecks are 25 to 30 times more likely to result in fatalities. If you or someone you know has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you should immediately consult with an attorney.
Providing evidence that another party was at fault for an accident is likely to be one of the most difficult challenges a rider will face in the aftermath of such an incident. The insurance company will do everything in their power to minimize your claim and will offer you a settlement that is substantially lower than what you deserve. As you deal with the fallout of an accident on your own, you could get the impression that you must stand alone. When it comes to pursuing a claim for compensation after a motorbike accident, fortunately, you have access to viable legal choices.
Retaining the services of an experienced Philadelphia motorcycle accident attorney may be quite useful. Our legal team at Spear Greenfield Personal Injury Attorneys is prepared to help you recover from a non-fault motorcycle accident. We are prepared to pursue a settlement or a trial, depending on the result of your claim.
Our specialists will aid you in collecting compensation for the following factors, including but not limited to:
- Past and current healthcare spending and medical bills
- Lost earnings or lost earning potential, not to mention pain and suffering
- Funerary or burial expenses
In light of the fact that motorcycles provide far less safety to their riders than the average passenger vehicle does, it’s possible that they’re among the riskiest modes of transportation. In addition, it is abundantly obvious that motorcyclists who are involved in accidents often suffer severe injuries, some of which may even be fatal.
After being involved in a motorcycle collision that was not your fault, it is imperative that you investigate your legal alternatives as soon as possible after the event.
