    Types of Motorcycle Injury Claims We Handle

    Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents tend to result in serious or fatal injuries to the rider. This is due to several factors, including the lack of seatbelts or windshields on a motorcycle, and the difficulty of larger vehicles in seeing and avoiding motorcyclists. Motorcycles are also more sensitive to debris and defects in the road, which can cause them to crash more easily than heavier vehicles. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), “Per vehicle miles traveled in 2016, motorcyclist fatalities occurred nearly 28 times more frequently than passenger car occupant fatalities…”

    The Allentown motorcycle injury lawyers of the Reiff Law Firm have experience handling all types of negligence claims, including crashes involving head-on collisions, side-impact collisions, intersection accidents, highway accidents, accidents with commercial vehicles, accidents caused by motorcycle defects, and drunk driving accidents. We can aggressively pursue financial compensation for injuries including but not limited to:

    • Amputation injuries
    • Back and spinal cord injuries
    • Bone fractures (broken bones)
    • Burn injuries
    • Cuts, bleeding, and bruises
    • Facial injuries and disfigurement
    • Head and brain injuries
    • Hip, knee, and shoulder injuries
    • Internal bleeding
    • Leg, foot, and ankle injuries
    • Scars and friction injuries caused by “road rash”
    • Soft tissue injuries
    • Whiplash and other neck injuries

    Pennsylvania Motorcycle Crash Statistics

    The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) releases an annual report containing statistics about motorcycle accidents, injuries, and fatalities across the state. The following motorcycle accident statistics were reported in PennDOT’s 2017 “Pennsylvania Crash Facts and Statistics” report, the most recent version currently available:

    • In 2017, there were a total of 3,194 motorcycle crashes in Pennsylvania.
    • 180 crashes were fatal, resulting in 185 deaths.
    • 2,791 crashes injured one or more people, causing more than 3,050 motorcycling injuries.
    • More than 460 crashes involved a collision between a motorcycle and a passenger car, followed by nearly 390 crashes involving a collision between a motorcycle and a van, SUV, or passenger truck. Smaller numbers of crashes involved collisions between motorcycles and semi-trailer trucks (30) or other motorcycles (42).
    • Lehigh County, where Allentown is located, ranked among the top 10 Pennsylvania counties with the highest number of auto accidents overall.

    What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident in Pennsylvania

    If you have been in a motorcycle accident, the first action you should take is getting to safety and seeking medical help by calling 9-1-1. You may be suffering from serious injuries that are temporarily masked by the rush of adrenaline from the crash. Following this, your next priority should be alerting the authorities to the accident. Police officers will create an accident report describing the conditions surrounding the crash.

    If possible to do so safely, you should attempt to record video footage and/or take photographs of the accident scene, which could provide invaluable evidence later in the claims process. Of course, you should never endanger your personal safety or that of other bystanders in order to obtain footage. If possible, it can also be helpful to get the contact information of people who witnessed the crash occur, whose statements could potentially support your claim.

    Do not worry about dealing with insurance paperwork or negotiations with claims adjusters while you are coping with a serious injury. It is not necessary – or recommended – for you to handle complex insurance-related issues on your own if you have suffered catastrophic injuries. It is in your best interests to let an experienced attorney deal with these matters for you, so that you do not fall prey to lowball settlement offers or other insurance tactics.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
