Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Warrington PA Motorcycle Accident Injury Attorneys
A motorcycle accident is technically defined as an incident during which a motorcycle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary object, potentially resulting in property damage, vehicle damage, injury, and in the most tragic of cases, death. But what does a motorcycle accident mean if you are the injured victim? It may mean long-term rehabilitative treatment, a grueling recovery process, loss of income, the inability to work or conduct your activities of daily living, physical deformity, mounting medical expenses, and the list goes on. For those you love, it may mean sitting beside your hospital bed, worrying, anxious, praying for a miracle. But what about for the person who caused your accident? Do they walk away without taking responsibility? The law says not necessarily, and at Cohen & Riechelson, we do everything in our power to ensure that justice is served.

Resolving Your Motorcycle Accident Injury Case in Bucks County PA
Injuries to the brain and spinal cord often fall under the category of “traumatic injuries,” which are extremely severe and often life-threatening. Obviously, the worst possible result of a motorcycle accident is death. Those surviving the deceased may have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit on his or her behalf if another party was responsible for causing the crash.
For motorcycle injury victims, personal injury litigation provides a legal mechanism through which to pursue monetary compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitative care, necessary future accommodations, permanent disability, and pain and suffering. It is important to note, however, that a two-year statute of limitations places a constraint on the time within which you can file a claim to recover damages. As such, it is highly advisable to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible following your accident.
