Motorcycle Accidents

The Law Offices of Kevin M. Siegel handles motorcycle accident cases in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

With gas prices on the rise, many Americans are turning to motorcycles and scooters to get better gas mileage. Motorcycles are more popular today than ever. With the increase in popularity there has also been a surge in motorcycle related injuries and fatalities. Our streets are busier than ever and driving is more challenging. No matter the level of training and experience, drivers do not always see motorcyclists since they are by their nature less visible to other drivers and pedestrians. The Law Office of Kevin M. Siegel will protect your rights and help get you the compensation you deserve if you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident.

There are many causes of motorcycle accidents on the streets today. Operating a motorcycle requires a different set of skills than operating a car. Also, motorcyclists are more prone to weather and road conditions. Distracted driving, road rage, impaired driving and driving an unsafe vehicle are among some additional causes of motorcycle accidents. Some drivers have a disdain for motorcyclists and intentionally engage in conduct that may endanger the health or life of a motorcyclist.

Those suffering from injuries due another’s carelessness or recklessness may end up losing time from work, suffering from lingering pain, incurring out of pocket expenses, losing sleep and dealing with the mental stress of having their lives turned upside down. In the most extreme cases a motorcycle accident can threaten a limb or a life.

The following injuries are common due to a motorcycle accident:

  • Wrongful Death
  • Back and Spinal Injury
  • Soft Tissue Injury
  • Broken Bones
  • Blood Loss
  • Paralysis
  • Brain or Head Injury

An attorney will serve as your advocate and can assist you in getting medical expenses paid by the proper party, getting your vehicle repaired quickly, helping you with insurance issues and, if necessary, filing a lawsuit to compensate you for your losses due to an accident.
