When you bought your motorcycle, we know that you did so because you wanted to experience the freedom of riding, something you just cannot get while riding in a car. When you ride a motorcycle, you are aware of the risks associated with it and take precautions. Unfortunately, other drivers tend to be negligent when operating around motorcycles.

When we look at the latest reporting year for Pennsylvania, we see that there were over 3,000 motorcycle accidents. Most of these resulted in some kind of injury, or even death, due to the vulnerability of motorcyclists.
There is no denying that accidents are more dangerous for those who ride motorcycles. They simply have no protection from the impact of a vehicle. Even when wearing a helmet, a motorcyclist can get seriously hurt.
- Minor injuries can include road rash, bumps and bruises, and minor lacerations. These injuries can still result in pricey medical bills. An X-ray, a few stitches, or a splint can all cost thousands of dollars.
- Major injuries can include amputations, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and much more. Major injuries could end up costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. If a person needs extended rehabilitation or long-term care, the costs could continue for years.
There are also “hidden costs” to consider. If home and vehicle accommodations are needed, this can cost thousands of dollars. If the person who is injured can no longer work, their lost income will affect their whole family.
We often see that vehicle drivers are careless when operating around motorcycles. They do not treat them with the same respect as other vehicles on the roadway. We also see major problems when it comes to:
- Drunk drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Those who speed
- Those who drive aggressively
All of these pose a problem for everyone on the roadway, but even more so for motorcyclists.
We also want to note that motorcyclists are more vulnerable to poorly designed and poorly maintained roadways. Government agencies and repair crews should regularly inspect and maintain any faults with the roads.
