George B. Bishop, Jr., PA: An Advocate For Injured Bikers
Having handled these cases for more than 30 years, I understand the issues that are going to arise. First of all, the negligent driver is going to point the finger. He or she is going to say that the victim was to blame. He or she is going to say that the motorcycle rider was going too fast or riding recklessly. He or she is going to say, “I didn’t even see the biker.” I know how to gather the evidence necessary to show that, in reality, the driver was negligent.
Riders Are Exposed To A High Risk For Serious Injury
A collision between a motorcycle and a larger vehicle typically results in serious injuries for the motorcyclist. At best, the only protection a motorcyclist has in the event of a collision is a helmet, which may not even prevent brain injuries in severe accidents. The motorcycle rider may also suffer back injuries, broken bones, road rash or other injuries.
In some cases, there may not have even been a collision between two vehicles. Perhaps you were run off the road or forced to lay your bike down in order to avoid a collision. This could still result in serious injuries, and the negligent driver should be held accountable. As your attorney, I will work hard to see that you get the full and fair compensation you need.
