Allentown Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Many Pennsylvania citizens own or ride motorcycles on a regular basis. However, motorcyclists are at more risk of injury than those in regular passenger vehicles. At the Dan Doyle Law Group, we know that motorcycle accidents can lead to serious injuries for riders, and we want to help if another person’s negligence caused your crash. Our motorcycle accident attorneys will investigate what happened and work to secure compensation from the at-fault party. You do not have to do this alone.

Motorcycle crashes are a regular occurrence

Due to the popularity of motorcycles in Pennsylvania, it is not uncommon for us to encounter crashes involving motorcycles and other vehicles. During the latest reporting year in PA, the Department of Transportation says that there was a total of 2,714 motorcycle accidents. From 2017 to 2018, there was a 15% decrease in total motorcycle accidents. Out of the 2018 incidents, there were:

  • 2,611 total injuries
  • 164 total fatalities

When we look at those statistics, it is clear that most reported motorcycle crashes resulted in some kind of injury or a fatality. Our Allentown motorcycle accident lawyers understand that cyclists are more vulnerable on the roadway than those inside regular passenger vehicles. Even when a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet (and most are not required to do so in PA), there is still a major risk that they will suffer from one of the following injuries in a crash:

What causes Allentown motorcycle accidents?

Many people are quick to blame a motorcyclist in the aftermath of a crash, but the truth is that most motorcyclists operate safely. Many injuries and fatal crashes are caused by the careless or negligent operation of another driver. Many drivers fail to give motorcyclists the space they deserve on the roadway.

Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to drivers who:

  • Operate at high rates of speed
  • Are distracted by their phones or other devices
  • Are impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Fail to yield the right-of-way

It is time to get your case started
