There’s nothing like tearing up and down the Pennsylvania highways, engine roaring in your ears, and wind slamming your chilled arms. Motorcycles offer the exhilarating freedom that passengers in their encased cars, idling in stuck traffic, may never fully appreciate.
However, with the freedom motorcycles offer comes a dangerous exposure to the elements. Cars tend to provide more protection to their drivers, especially in accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, even though motorcyclists only make up about 1 percent of traffic, they account for 19% of deaths and serious injuries caused by motor vehicles.
Motorcyclist injuries tend to appear mainly in the head and neck but also result in road rash, burns, broken bones, back injuries, and traumatic amputation. The attorneys at Kwartler Manus, LLC understand the severity of motorcycle accident injuries and have experience in building strong cases for motorcycle accident lawsuits.
