Motorcycle riders consistently face situations in which their road rights are violated or they are given little respect. Even insurance companies discriminate against motorcyclists. That's no surprise if you are a bike rider, but this translates into high risk on the road. If you or a loved one was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in Pennsylvania, you will have very serious concerns about insurance coverage, medical bills and recovery.
Your own insurance company might deny medical coverage, and any insurance company will work to minimize the payout that you deserve based on the "inherent risk" of riding a motorcycle and what it deems to be a high-risk activity.
The reality is that motorcyclists have the same road rights as all drivers in Pennsylvania. At Purcell, Krug & Haller, we aggressively protect the rights and interests of accident victims and their families, and we will fight to maximize your injury compensation recovery in all legal forums. Our personal injury attorneys handle motorcycle accident cases from offices in Harrisburg and Hershey, and we have been serving the surrounding communities for over 60 years.
