Top Rated Motorcycle Accident Lawyer-Rider In Philadelphia
The motorcycle crash is probably one of the most frightening types of experiences you can imagine and can happen in a split second because of the direct and immediate force of the impact on all parts of your body. The motorcyclist is not restrained by a seat belt and is often thrown off the bike by the high speed and tremendous force involved, often resulting in painful and debilitating injuries in that split second. Your life has changed, everything was fine just a day ago. Broken bones, fractured ribs, head injuries, internal injuries, friction burns and numerous scrapes and contusions often result from the motorcycle crash. Now your life feels in complete turmoil. You may be in the hospital hurting badly. Nothing the insurance company tells you makes any sense and you feel you are getting nowhere with them. Your bike is badly damaged. You are unable to work and on top of that you have bills to pay and others you have to take care of. You keep replaying the accident over and over in your head wondering if you could have done anything differently to avoid the crash.You have many questions but no immediate answers. You wonder, what do I do now? Will my life ever get back to normal? What steps should I be taking at this moment? Do I need a lawyer?

Motorcycle Crashes are Often More Serious than Car Accidents
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, motorcycles are less visible to other drivers and offer significantly less in the way of protection in the event of a motorcycle accident. As a result, on a per mile basis, the number of motorcyclists who lost their life in 2014 was 27 times the number of car drivers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that, in 2010, 4,518 motorcyclists lost their lives in bike crashes, while an estimated 96,000 were hurt.
The cost of both fatal and non-fatal injuries in a motorcycle totaled $12.9 billion in 2010, alone.
Motorcycle Accidents Typically the Fault of Car Drivers
While there is a common assumption that motorcycle drivers are far more risky on the roads than anyone else, statistics suggest otherwise.
In fact, while motorcyclists are more likely to be involved in single-vehicle accidents, those that include other vehicles are typically the fault of the non-motorcyclist. A study done by the University of South Florida's Center for Urban Transportation Research found that 60% of the motorcycle crashes involving another vehicle were the fault of the other car.
For motorcyclists, this is no surprise. The feel of the road right beneath our heels makes us appreciate the danger of driving far more than someone inside a car. When surrounded by cars that motorcyclists can reach out and touch, riders keep their eyes on the road and do not let themselves become distracted by anything that can impair their riding.
