Doylestown, PA Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Table of Contents

    The potential for a serious or catastrophic injury is increased for motorcyclists when compared to car, truck, SUV or bus drivers. Unlike drivers of other vehicles, motorcyclists are not protected by safety harnesses, multiple safety systems or a layer of metal and glass. Instead, the motorcyclist is exposed to the full extent of the elements and forces that make-up a collision. Many times these forces will throw the motorcyclist from the bike resulting in even more serious injuries.

    For more than 34 years the attorneys of The Reiff Law Firm have worked with victims of motorcycle accidents in Doylestown and throughout Pennsylvania. If you have been hurt due to the recklessness or negligence of another person we may be able to secure compensation for your injuries.

    What Should I Do After an Accident?

    Following an accident, your most important concern should be your health and safety. Physical items and property can always be replaced or repurchased but there is no such option for your life. Therefore, following your accident your first action should be to get to safety. If your bike or the other vehicle is smoking or leaking fluids, it is especially important to distance yourself from the wreck as a fire or an explosion can occur.

    Once you have reached a safe location, you should call 911 so that the dispatcher can send the police and medical professionals, if necessary. Once the police or ambulance arrives be sure to disclose any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing. Many times the full extent of injuries are camouflaged by endorphins and high levels of adrenaline that are present immediately following an accident. What may seem like a minor injury at first, may actually be broken bones, internal bleeding or another serious condition.

    If it is possible and safe, it may be advantageous to take a smartphone picture or video of the accident scene. Even if you aren’t able to record the scene of the accident, our attorneys can work to reconstruct the circumstances that were present. Following the accident our attorneys can:

    • Obtain and interpret the police report
    • Investigate and document the accident scene
    • Inventory all damages including injury and damage to property
    • Consult and collaborate with medical experts
    • Consult and collaborate with accident reconstruction experts
    • Handle negotiations with the auto insurance company

    The above represents only a few of the things that a The Reiff Law Firm attorney can do for you. All in all, we focus on the litigation so that you can focus on your recovery.

    What Types of Injuries Are Common?

    Each and every accident is unique and is experienced differently by each person involved. In fact, people involved in the same accident in the same vehicle can walk away with significantly different injuries in type and severity. However, despite the changes in circumstances, some injuries occur more frequently than others. Common injuries in motorcycle accidents include:

    • Broken or fractured bones – Broken or fractured bones are not uncommon with the speeds typically involved in a motorcycle accident.
    • Whiplash – Whiplash can occur due to rapid and violent acceleration or deceleration. It can cause pain, tingling, or numbness in the back and neck. Further whiplash can cause issues with memory, concentration, and cause mood swings.
    • Traumatic brain injury – While helmets reduce the likelihood of suffering a TBI, they do not eliminate the risk. TBIs are especially troubling because they can cause changes in personality or make once routine tasks of daily living difficult or impossible.

    If you have been in a motorcycle accident and suffered a serious or catastrophic injury, The Reiff Law Firm may be able to help. We work to hold reckless, careless and negligent drivers accountable for their actions. For your free personal injury consultation, call The Reiff Law Firm 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.
