FAQs: Philadelphia Motorcycle Accident Injury

Questions About Motorcycle Accidents Our Lawyers Often Hear

How do I determine the extent of my injuries in a motorcycle accident?

Some injuries will be immediately apparent, while others may take time to show symptoms. Even if you were wearing a helmet, brain injury is a common consequence of motorcycle accidents that might not show symptoms for several days or weeks. Seek medical attention as soon as possible after your accident to assess the full extent of your injuries.

What damages can I seek in a PA motorcycle accident claim?

When you come to Wapner Newman for your accident claim, our motorcycle accident attorneys in Allentown can seek damages including current and future medical expenses, current and future lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

Can I just settle with insurance?

You can, but this is almost never in your best interests. Insurance companies are devoted to protecting their profits and will often offer a settlement that is inadequate to cover all of your damages. Only with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can you be sure you are compensated for the full extent of your injuries.

I lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident. Can I file a lawsuit in Pennsylvania?

Motorcycle accidents often end in fatality. If you lose a spouse or parent in a motorcycle accident, you may have cause to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Our wrongful death attorneys will carefully investigate the circumstances of your loved one’s death and help you determine if you can seek compensation for your tragic loss.
