Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Allentown, PA
Injured in a Motorcycle Accident? Knafo Law Offices Can Help.
Motorcyclists are in danger of experiencing catastrophic, life-threatening injuries if they are involved in traffic accidents. In fact, according National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) accident statistics from 2016, motorcyclists accounted for 14% of all traffic fatalities.
It is easy to see why this is the case when you consider they are relatively unprotected in the event of a collision. Even a Department of Transportation (DOT)-approved helmet and other protective gear may do little to prevent serious trauma in a high-speed or high-impact crash.
The severity of motorcycle accidents and the complexity of resulting insurance claims are two reasons you should consult an experienced attorney if you or a loved one has been injured. Knafo Law Offices is committed to representing riders across Pennsylvania who have been injured in motorcycle accidents. Our experience in this specific area of personal injury law has enabled us to help injured riders and their families face more stable futures, free from overwhelming medical debt.

Determining Liability in a Motorcycle Accident
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident and have come to our firm for legal counsel, one of the primary issues at hand will be determining liability. This is ascertaining who is legally responsible for your medical bills, lost earnings, damage to your bike, and other losses you have experienced as a result of the accident. When we determine liability, we can pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
Some examples of parties that could be held liable for a motorcycle accident may include:
- A drunk driver who ran a red light and struck your bike.
- A distracted driver who backed out of a parking space into you and your motorcycle.
- The manufacturer of a defective bike part or auto part.
- An overtired trucker who changed lanes into your bike.
- A driver who was speeding and failed to stop in time, rear-ending you.
- A municipality or other entity responsible for road maintenance, if a dangerous or defective road caused your crash.
