Many factors can influence the severity of the injuries a victim may sustain if they are involved in a motor vehicle accident. Often, one of the most significant factors is the size of the vehicles that collided with one another.
For example, the injuries victims may sustain in an accident involving two cars may not be the same as those sustained by victims of collisions between cars and motorcycles.
Have you been harmed in such an accident in the Pittsburgh area? Do you believe your accident resulted from the negligence of another motorist?
If so, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your medical bills and other losses associated with your accident. You can pursue compensation by filing a claim to collect from the negligent party’s insurance. Filing a lawsuit is also an option if they are uninsured or if their insurer will not offer an appropriate settlement.
Regardless, it is wise to seek legal assistance in these cases. Our Pittsburgh motorcycle and car collision attorneys at Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman have substantial experience representing victims like you. We will negotiate aggressively on your behalf, preventing an insurance company from convincing you to settle for an unreasonably low offer.
Riding a motorcycle can offer motorists an exciting way to explore our beautiful state. However, motorcyclists must exercise caution on the road. Doing so is key to avoiding serious injury or even death.
Research indicates that motorcyclists are approximately 29 times more likely to lose their lives than drivers or occupants of cars (or other such enclosed vehicles, like trucks) are when accidents occur. This is because enclosed vehicles offer such safety features as airbags, seatbelts, windows, and their strong metal frames.
Motorcycles don’t have these safety features. Because of this, when motorcycles collide with cars, their riders are frequently thrown from their vehicles.
A motorcycle rider who survives such an accident will almost certainly still be left with major injuries. They might not be prepared to pay for the treatment they need in these circumstances. Depending on how severe their injuries are, a motorcyclist involved in a Pittsburgh car and motorcycle accident can also face such losses as:
Victims deserve compensation for such losses if they were injured because another motorist was careless. Our Pittsburgh motorcycle and car collision lawyers have helped victims of these accidents recover this type of compensation.
