ERIE, ERIE COUNTY and PENNSYLVANIA MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
“SERIOUS REPRESENTATION FOR SERIOUS INJURIES”
In Erie County and NW Pennsylvania, motorcycle riding enjoys a special place in our community. As such, the number of Erie motorcycle accidents remains high. Last year Pennsylvania motorcycle fatalities were among their highest levels ever. Erie personal injury lawyers have seen an increase in Erie motorcycle insurance claims and ensuing lawsuits. We have also seen a rise in the dollar amount for settlements that personal injury attorneys have been able to secure in these difficult cases.
When you are in a Erie County motorcycle accident chances are that you are facing a devastating injury. In approximately 80% of all reported motorcycle accidents the outcome is substantial injury or death, usually due to a head injury; comparatively the figure for automobiles is about 20%. Motorcycles offer virtually no protection to the rider, meaning a rider can incur numerous physical injuries to all parts of the body in the event of a collision. Broken bones, amputations, brain and spinal injuries, and death are common. Even with the numbers as they are and the dangers evident, the number of motorcycle accidents is rising world-wide. Statistics currently show that a driver on a motorcycle is 83% more likely to be injured than drivers riding in other types of vehicles. This stark contrast is strong proof of not only the higher risk that goes along with riding a motorcycle, but that if you are involved in a Erie Pennsylvania motorcycle accident you must seek the help of an exceptional personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
