Aug 21, 2013 - Motorcycle Accidents

Pennsylvania residents will often witness motorcycles traveling on the roadways. These small vehicles will travel short or long distances traveling from town to town and state to state. Motorcyclists that travel long distances could encounter some dangers on the roadway, especially if they do not wear a helmet. These small vehicles can easily go unnoticed if they are traveling in the blind spots of another vehicle. This could result in a motorcycle accident and could turn fatal.

A 63-year-old man from Lancaster was traveling on his motorcycle in the region when an automobile in New Haven struck him. Authorities responded to the motorcycle collision on Route 15. According to reports, the motorcyclist was thrown off his bike due to the impact of the crash. He did not survive his injuries.

The driver of the automobile veered off the road following the collision. This resulted with him colliding with several trees. The driver also did not survive his injuries. Officials are still investigating the accident in order to determine what caused the driver to collide with the motorcycle.

The loss of a loved one in a fatal accident could lead to a cause of action by the family members of the deceased. In this case, if negligence was involved and the other driver was at fault, the family members of the deceased motorcyclist could file a wrongful death suit against the estate of the deceased driver. This could result in compensation to cover funeral costs, other damages and pain and suffering.

A tragic and fatal accident can be difficult to deal with, especially when it is hard to determine the cause. Those coping with the loss of a loved one should seek to understand their options when it comes to gaining compensation. This can help reduce financial burdens and the coping process.

"Working with this firm was an amazing experience. I worked with Jeremy Puglia and from the very beginning I felt confident that he would do his absolute best for me. He took the time to inform me every step along the way and made me comfortable. Navigating the legal waters is a confusing process and I was grateful that Jeremy was there the whole time. He was great at communicating with me quickly and was flexible about meeting outside of his office. I would highly recommend him and should I have a need for a lawyer in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Jeremy."
