Motorcyclists are often viewed as reckless or dangerous drivers. Many times when an accident occurs, it is NOT the fault of the motorcyclist. Single-vehicle motorcycle accidents can occur due to severe weather (strong winds, heavy rain, etc.) or hazardous road conditions. Often other motorists fail to give motorcycles their proper right-of-way in traffic, causing many motorcycle accidents.
If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident, do not assume that the accident was your fault. Contact the Pennsylvania motorcycle collision attorneys at Berger and Green to find out about your rights to money that can cover your medical bills and wage loss and also compensate for your pain and suffering.
Motorcycles, due to their smaller size, can disappear into other vehicles’ blind spots or fall out of view behind larger vehicles such as commercial trucks. Drivers may change lanes or make turns without seeing the motorcycle until it is too late. Motorcyclists must maneuver through traffic and respond to road and weather conditions differently than other drivers. Pulling out unexpectedly in front of a motorcyclist can cause the driver to crash because they did not have a sufficient amount of time to react properly.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycle rider fatalities are more likely to occur than car passenger fatalities.
