Motorcycle Accidents Attorneys

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Nationwide

Collisions involving motorcycles can be especially dangerous for bikers, and motorcycle accidents are more likely to cause severe injuries and fatalities than collisions involving only passenger vehicles.

Although riding motorcycles carries additional risks over other vehicles, motorcyclists have the same rights as other drivers, including the right to seek financial compensation when they are injured in an accident that was due to the negligence of another driver. The Philadelphia personal injury attorneys at Golomb & Honik have more than three decades of experience successfully representing bikers who are victims of negligent driving.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Any motor vehicle accident has the potential to result in serious injuries, but motorcycle riders are especially vulnerable in collisions, even when wearing a helmet.

Injuries suffered by bikers are often severe and may necessitate extensive medical attention or long-term care. Common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Disfigurement
  • Injuries necessitating amputation
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

If you are injured or a family member is killed in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent driver, our attorneys can help you hold the responsible party accountable and challenge the insurance companies who attempt to deny motorcycle accident victims the money the need to recover from their injuries.

Negligence in Motorcycle Accidents

Failure of other motor vehicle drivers to notice motorcycles is the most common cause of motorcycle accidents. In fact, most drivers guilty of causing motorcycle accidents cite not recognizing the presence of a motorcycle as the reason for the collision.

Common triggers for motorcycle accidents include:

  • A passenger vehicle moving in front of a motorcycle
  • A passenger vehicle entering an intersection into the path of a motorcycle
  • A passenger vehicle turning onto a street into the path of a motorcycle
  • A passenger vehicle driver failing to check for motorcycles before making a lane change
  • A passenger vehicle driver failing to yield to or violating the right-of-way of a motorcycle

If you were harmed or a loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident that was the result of another driver’s negligence, please contact the Philadelphia personal injury attorneys at Golomb & Honik for your free case evaluation.
