Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

in West Virginia and Pennsylvania

If you ride a motorcycle, you are aware that you receive little respect from driver's of other vehicles. Drivers of cars and large trucks often fail to see motorcycles on the road. Add to this a careless driver, a driver on a cell phone not paying attention, or a tired truck driver and even the most skilled and careful motorcycle rider can be injured or even killed. Did you know that in the year 2006, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 92,000 motorcycle riders were killed or injured?

  1. Wear a helmet. While you are free to choose in PA, a helmet may save your life.

  4. Keep your bike in good mechanical condition, especially tires, brakes and lights.
  5. Keep a safe distance between you and other vehicles.
  6. Ride where you are visible and avoid car and truck blindspots.
