Pennsylvania motorcycle accidents: the long-term repercussions

A Pennsylvania woman who suffered serious trauma in a motorcycle accident five months ago is still facing the permanent and lingering effects of the crash. The woman was riding her motorcycle when a drunk driver crossed the center line and caused the near-fatal crash. Motorcycle accidents often leave victims with serious injuries, many requiring long-term and expensive medical care.

During the accident, woman's head struck the pavement, and the motorcycle pulled her across the road. Her leg was amputated by the bike, and she suffered serious trauma to her stomach. Due to the quick action of two emergency care workers and a nurse who arrived on the scene immediately, she was already receiving medical care by the time the ambulance arrived. Family members were told that she would not live, and the doctors wanted to amputate her arm as well.

The victim considers it a miracle that she survived such severe trauma. As is the case with many motorcycle accident victims, she will be living the rest of her life dealing with the repercussions of the accident. In addition to the loss of her leg, she is also grappling with a loss of motion in her arm and hand. 

This particular accident underlines the serious nature of most motorcycle accidents. When innocent Pennsylvania riders suffer due to the actions of another driver, it is important to ensure that their rights are protected and they understand their right to pursue to financial compensation. After any type of motor vehicle accident, a victim can benefit from a full case evaluation with a knowledgeable attorney.
