    While many people consider a car accident to be one of the most frightening experiences possible, a motorcycle collision is undoubtedly worse. Unlike in a car where safety harnesses and the car body offer some protection, a motorcycle rider is exposed. Motorcyclists are often launched from their bikes because of the speeds and forces involved in a collision. With such violent collisions, it is not surprising that many motorcycle accidents result in catastrophic injury.

    For more than 33 years, The Reiff Law Firm have protected those hurt in an accident or injured due to the recklessness or negligence of another person. If you have been injured in a motorcycle collision or other accident we may be able to hold the responsible party accountable for your injuries and suffering.

    Common Motorcycle Injuries

    Each and every accident is unique in its circumstances, contributing factors and injuries. Even people involved in the same accident often end up with different injuries of varying severity. However, some injury types are more common than others. Some injuries that we have identified as common to motorcycle collisions include:

    • Whiplash – Whiplash is the classic injury suffered in situations where there is a rapid acceleration and deceleration. Whiplash can cause people to have pain or discomfort In their shoulders, back and neck. Others may experience a tingling sensation or ringing in their ears. Whiplash can also cause neurological issues such as difficulty in concentration and mood changes.
    • Severe burns – Falling from a motorcycle can lead to severe skin burns due to the friction that can be caused. Injuries of this type can be extremely painful and require extensive surgeries to correct.
    • Traumatic brain injury – Blunt force injuries or injuries where an object penetrates the skull are particularly troubling because the brain controls who we are, how we act and things that make us who we are. When there is a severe trauma to the brain it can change how the brain functions.  Changes in personality can occur or the injured person may have difficulties with communication.
    • Broken or fractured bones – High-speed collisions can cause serious trauma to limbs or other body parts. Breaks and fractures are not uncommon injuries to suffer in a motorcycle collision.

    If you have suffered one of the previously mentioned injuries or a different injury due to the carelessness of another driver, The Reiff Law Firm may be able to assist you.

    Let us Handle the Insurance Company for You

    Pennsylvania drivers have the option of participating in a no-fault liability insurance system. The no-fault system permits a lawsuit only if the injury suffered is legally considered serious.  In most instances, disfigurement or other serious impairment is required for an injury to qualify as serious. Additionally, damage to the property of a third-party is outside the scope of this insurance regime. Those who choose not to participate in the no-fault program must obtain traditional coverage that opens them to many of the benefits and burdens that the traditional system provides. In particular, participation in the traditional system allows you to sue or be sued for the injuries and damages you have sustained.

    At The Reiff Law Firm we have more than 34 years of experience in standing up for accident victims. To schedule your free motorcycle consultation call us today at (215) 709-6940 or contact us online.

    ...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.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. 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.
