Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits
In 2006, there were 4,810 motorcyclists killed in traffic accidents and an additional 88,000 were injured, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This represents 11 percent of all traffic fatalities over the course of the year, even though information published in Highway Statistics 2005 by the U.S. Department of Transportation shows that motorcycles make up only 2 percent of registered vehicles. Motorcyclists face a real risk of being severely injured or killed every time they ride. Because motorcycles offer no external protection against the forces involved in a crash, motorcyclists can easily suffer severe trauma to the head and spine, trauma that can result in paralysis, brain damage, or death.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Unfortunately, many motorists are indifferent to the presence of motorcycles on the road and place motorcyclists at risk by driving in a careless and negligent fashion. A motorcycle accident attorney can help you file a claim if you were involved in a motorcycle accident as a result of one of the following common actions by motorists:
- Making a left-hand turn in front of a motorcyclist
- Pulling in front of a motorcyclist from a driveway, parking lot, or intersection
- Following a motorcyclist too closely
- Failing to check over his or her shoulder before making a lane change
- General driver inattentiveness
- Speeding or driving recklessly
The at-fault party is responsible for damages in the event of an auto accident, either in proportion to his or her contribution to the accident or fully, depending on the case. If you were involved in an accident because a motorist was negligent, you have rights and may be entitled to compensation. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. - serving Reading, Allentown, Lancaster, Philadelphia, and New Jersey - a motorcycle accident attorney can help ensure that you obtain the compensation that you deserve.
