When a Motorcycle Accident Has Occurred
There are over 4 million motorcycles registered in the United States. Popularity of this type of vehicle can be attributed to fuel efficiency, use as a pleasure vehicle, and its low initial cost. In Pennsylvania alone there are over 400,000 registered motorcycles. Motorcycles are popular in Pennsylvania because many cyclists like to unwind and take rides through the scenic countryside. Bikers also ride to raise money for good causes such as Bikers for Barkers for the Humane Society, and Burgi's Low Life Riders to help support children of central Pennsylvania stricken with serious or debilitating illnesses. Attorney Doug Stoehr supports these causes.
We realize that motorcycle accidents are like automobile accidents in some ways, but because of some unique factors, injuries and liability issues can be very different. He uses five years of insurance claims experience, and 20 years of legal experience, to help motorcycle accident victims hurt in collisions achieve adequate compensation throughout west - central Pennsylvania.
Taking Legal Action
Many motor vehicle drivers operate their cars while distracted whether it be eating, talking on the cell phone or talking to a passenger. Many times motorcycles go unnoticed and cyclists are injured while being ignored by these automobile operators. This also happens frequently with truck drivers.
Attorney Doug Stoehr can help. He is dedicated to helping the injured cyclist and understands that motorcyclists deserve the same respect on the road as any other vehicle.
