Motorcycle Accidents in Pennsylvania
Motorcycle accidents are known for being some of the most catastrophic accidents that happen in all of Pennsylvania. These accidents are especially severe when they happen on our major roads and in our major cities, such as Philadelphia. So many motorcycle accidents can be avoided when drivers of large passenger vehicles pay close attention to the roads around them. Motorcycle accidents are likely to lead to severe and even life-threatening results. In fact, a recent report by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) confirmed that motorcycle accidents are about 27 times more likely to lead to fatalities. If you or someone you know has been affected by a motorcycle accident, you should speak with an attorney immediately.
One of the most complex trials that a motorcyclist will face after an accident is proving that another party is liable.
