- Motorcycle Accidents
The high rate of speed and lack of protection afforded by most motorcycles can lead to catastrophic injuries and damages. Even when motorcyclists are abiding by all the rules of the road, they are still at risk that another driver will not see them, will not properly maneuver around them, or will drive inattentively and cause a collision. Accidents can lead to broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and even death. Even those bikers who are lucky enough to have a helmet on during a collision may still be coping with serious injuries.
- Taxi Accidents
As a passenger, a taxi accident is never your fault. Whether you were riding with a negligent or reckless taxi driver, or whether the accident was caused by another vehicle, you have the right to recover for your injuries. If youíve been involved in a taxi accident, you may be wondering how to get the help you need. You may not have car insurance, in which case you have to set up your accident claim through the taxi companyís insurance. You may be worried about getting your bills paid and getting the compensation you deserve.
- Rental Car Accidents
When deciding to use a rental car and choosing your insurance option, you rarely anticipate an accident actually happening. In the aftermath of a rental car accident, you may not even recall which insurance option you chose. You may be confused about how your own car insurance comes into play in a rental car accident. The best thing you can do is hire an experienced attorney to sort out your personal injury claim and help you win your case. If youíve been injured in a rental car accident, let us help you set up your claim and win your case.
- Limited Tort
Pennsylvania is one of three states that offer the option of limited tort. Many car owners like yourself do not fully understand the repercussions that go along with this decision. Limited tort injury victims lose the right to recover for pain and suffering for most injuries. Consulting with an experienced lawyer can help you determine whether your limited tort policy prevents you from making a claim or how to handle any claims you may make.
- Pedestrian Accidents
You may be one of many individuals who do not own their own vehicle and therefore have no car insurance. You may be wondering who will pay for your medical treatment. With the injuries caused by any pedestrian accident, you may find that hospital bills and medical bills are piling up. Insurance companies are not always direct with you about what kind of compensation you are entitled to or what your rights are in this situation.
- Hit and Run Accidents
When hit and run accidents happen, injury victims often feel helpless as they have difficulty identifying the responsible driver. You might be panicking, thinking that you have no options for compensation. You may be confused, wondering exactly how your own insurance can help you in this situation. While these cases are more difficult than other auto accidents, you still have rights, and you still have options. If youíve been involved in a hit and run accident, the most important thing to do is speak to an experienced attorney who can help you sort out your options.
- Uninsured Motorist Accidents
The first step in making an Uninsured Motorist claim is to find out whether or not you have this option in your insurance policy. As Uninsured Motorist coverage is not required by law, many individuals unfortunately decide not to pay for this type of coverage. In situations where the other driver has failed to maintain adequate insurance, your best option is to make an Uninsured Motorist claim under your own insurance policy.
- ATV Accidents
As inherently dangerous vehicles, ATV accidents happen often and can lead to serious injuries. Due to their popularity amongst younger drivers, teenagers and children are frequently the ones injured in ATV accidents. ATVs are relatively new to the market and thus have Many ATVs, especially three-wheelers, have been recalled in recent years. Just because a particular model of ATV has not been recalled does not mean that it is safe. If you have been injured in an ATV accident caused by someone elseís negligence, you need an experienced lawyer immediately.
- Defective Automobiles or Motorcycles
Recalled automobiles and malfunctions in manufacturing have been all over the news recently. When an automobile malfunctions due to an error or unsafe design, this falls into the legal category of products liability. Malfunctions in design can happen in any part of an automobile from the airbags to the tires. They can result in serious bodily harm or even death.
