In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a motorcycle crash caused a fatality for the rider.

Unfortunately, due to the lack of protection featured on motorcycles, riders in a crash may be at-risk for a wide range of injuries as well as potential fatalities. The majority of accidents involving a motorcycle stem from drivers engaging in negligent driving practices such as failing to use caution around the bikes or not allowing an adequate amount of distance between the driver’s vehicle and the motorcycle. If the rider survives the accident, they may experience lingering physical trauma, emotional distress, and may find it challenging to earn an income.
