Pennsylvania motorcycle accidents: Man dies and woman injured

Motorcyclists are often stereotyped as risky and speedy drivers. When motorcycle accidents occur, the stereotype may unfortunately result in quick blame for the cyclist. Personal injury attorneys in Pennsylvania work to ensure that motorcyclists are treated fairly throughout the investigation process and are properly compensated by insurance or negligent parties. Recently, a three vehicle accident that involved two motorcycles ended in tragedy for one rider.

Two motorcyclists were taking a late night ride when the accident occurred. At some point both motorcycles collided with a Jeep Wrangler. The investigation is not complete, but authorities speculate that one of the motorcyclists may have been at fault. One theory suggests that one of the cyclists may have struck the back of the jeep. It's also believed that one of the riders may have lost control and struck the other bike. At this time, the driver of the Jeep has not been accused of contributing to the accident. 

Sadly, the male rider was immediately killed, but the female rider survived. She was seriously injured and transported for treatment. Reportedly, the driver of the jeep was not injured. An autopsy was planned for the deceased cyclist to aid in the investigation of the accident.

Persons injured in motorcycle accidents may face long expensive medical treatments. Families of deceased riders also will have to finance unexpected funerals, often creating financial stress while grieving. Victims of accidents may find it beneficial to speak with a personal injury attorney in Pennsylvania to be advised of their rights and options, and attorneys can also advocate for victims throughout the investigation and insurance claim process.
