Reading Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Tough Representation Emphasizing Client Service in Pennsylvania
Motorcycle riders have a reputation for fearlessness, bold living, risk taking, and thrill seeking. Because of this stereotype, they can sometimes be unfairly characterized and even blamed when accidents occur. The statistics tell a different story, however. In fact, some data shows that as many as 80% of all motorcycle vs. vehicle accidents are the faults of the automobile drivers involved, not the bikers.
At Knafo Law Offices, we offer tough and effective representation for motorcycle wreck victims. Our experienced Reading motorcycle accident attorneys understand how to look at the case from your perspective and we’re ready to win your case and obtain the compensation that you deserve.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
When a motorist driving a personal car, delivery truck, or other motor vehicle causes injury to a biker, the motorist can be held accountable for the victim’s medical bills and other accident-related expenses, such as property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
The primary causes of multi vehicle motorcycle crashes include:
- Reckless driving
- Poor road design and/or upkeep
- Low visibility conditions
- Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
- Motorcycle defects
As you can see, instead of or in addition to another motorist being at fault for your crash, other parties may be found liable for your injuries as well, such as the motorcycle’s manufacturer (in the case of defective parts) or the local government organization that manages roads (if something like a pothole caused the crash, for instance). Our legal team will help you pinpoint exactly which party or parties is liable so we can hold them accountable for all your accident-related expenses.
