Asserting your rights after a motorcycle accident

For some people, when the word "motorcyclist" is said it conjures up images of biker gangs. For others, they think about a reckless, motorcyclist speeding and weaving in and out of traffic. Others still, may think of other stereotypical images from the media. However, the truth is that most people that ride motorcycles in Pennsylvania are just normal law-abiding citizens.

People can choose to ride a motorcycle for a variety of reasons. Maybe, they want to save money on gas. Or, maybe they enjoy the feel of the open road. Others may enjoy the thrill of riding in the wind. Any of these reason are perfectly legitimate and do not mean that the motorcyclist doesn't value the person's own safety or the safety of others.

Sadly, a motorcyclist's safety is often on the line in Pennsylvania. Other cars, trucks and vehicles fail to safely share the roadways with motorcycles. They cut them off, turn in front of them or swerve into their lane. Motorcycles may be able to take evasive action to avoid collisions in some circumstances, but often there's nothing a motorcyclist can do.

Motorcycle accident victims are often left with serious injuries. This can include brain damage, broken bones, spinal cord injuries and more. Recovery from these injuries will often take significant amounts of time, energy and medical attention.

During this time, an attorney can help these injured motorcyclists to assert their rights.

Our compassionate and knowledgeable attorneys understand how important it is to focus on healing following this type of accident. A personal injury suit can help people get the compensation they need in order to focus on healing.

Butts, after Attorney Kyle Rude argues that the Commonwealth could not prove Ms. Steinbacher was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle. Ms. Steinbacher was arrested after Williamsport City Police believed she switched seats with her boyfriend in order to avoid an arrest for DUI.
