Motorcycle Accident Lawyers in PA, NY & NJ
Motorcycle accidents typically result in devastating injuries, so a superior motorcycle accident lawyer is vital. Injuries from motorcycle accidents are more severe simply because the motorcycle rider and passenger do not have the bodily protections afforded by a car. In the event of a crash, motorcyclists are significantly more exposed and vulnerable, so their injuries tend to be more serious and life-threatening. If a motorcyclist chooses not to wear a helmet, the injuries they will sustain in an accident are even more devastating. For this reason, the aftermath of a motorcycle accident can be a financially and emotionally harrowing time. If your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence or carelessness, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Motorcycle Crash FAQs
Q: Do I need a lawyer if I have been in a motorcycle accident?
A: Unlike typical car accidents, motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in serious injury, especially if the rider is not wearing adequate protective gear, such as a helmet. Such injuries often come with costly medical bills, loss of income or inability to work, and physical as well as psychological pain and suffering. Even though an insurance company may make a settlement offer, victims who seek the help of a lawyer typically receive far greater benefits than those who do not. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongful actions, an experienced attorney will help you get all of the compensation you are owed.
Q: How much will it cost to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer?
A: At Munley Law, we charge on a contingent fee basis. This means that we do not collect a fee (a portion of the benefits recovered) unless we win your case. If we are unable to produce results for you, you will not owe us anything for our services. We do not get paid until you do, and you will not have to pay anything up front or out of your own pocket. And, our initial consultation with you is absolutely free, so you risk nothing by coming to speak with an attorney about your case. This way, finances will not stand in the way of your access to the best possible legal representation.
Q: What should I do in the days following a motorcycle accident?
A: In the days after your accident, the most important thing is that you have medical attention for your injuries. However, the next steps to take include:
- Obtain a copy of the accident report prepared by the police
- Obtain the property damage valuation from your insurance company
- Take photos of damaged property and of your physical injuries
- Keep a record of your physical symptoms, medical visits, treatments, tests, and medications
- Keep a record of days missed from work, and other expenses incurred
- Never give a statement or supply information to anyone other than your own doctor and your insurance company
- Do not accept a settlement offer from an insurance company until you have consulted with a lawyer at Munley Law
