Do I Need a Motorcycle Accident Lawye
Careless drivers may not see a biker on the road until it is too late. When carelessness results in a serious accident, the driver at fault must be held accountable. After a crash, there may be roadblocks to getting the compensation you need to recover, even if your injuries are severe. Insurance companies profit by paying as little as they can to motorcycle policyholders and motorcycle accident victims. It is common practice for the insurance company to attempt to blame the motorcycle rider for the accident. Don’t accept an offer from an insurance company without consulting an attorney first.

Motorcycle Crash FAQs
Q: Do I need a lawyer if I have been in a motorcycle accident in PA?
A: By their very nature, motorcycle crashes frequently result in serious injury. Such injuries often come with costly medical bills, loss of income or inability to work, and physical as well as psychological pain and suffering. While the insurance company may make a settlement offer, people with legal representation typically receive far greater benefits than those who do not. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney will help you get all of the compensation you are owed.
Q: How much will it cost to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer?
A: At Munley Law, we charge on a contingent fee basis. This means that we do not collect a fee (a portion of the settlement) unless we win your case. If we are unable to produce results for you, you will not owe us anything for our services. Furthermore, you will not pay anything up front or out of your own pocket. Our initial consultation with you is absolutely free, so you risk nothing by coming to speak with an attorney about your case. This way, cost will not stand in the way of your access to the best possible legal representation.
Q: What should I do in the days following a motorcycle accident?
A: In the days after your accident, the most important thing is to seek medical attention for your injuries. However, the next steps to take include:
- Get a copy of the police report from the accident
- Take photos of damaged property and of your physical injuries
- Keep a record of your physical symptoms, medical visits, treatments, tests, and medications
- Keep a record of days missed from work
- Never give a statement or supply information to anyone other than your own doctor and your insurance company – you are not obligated to speak with the other driver’s insurance company
- Do not accept a settlement offer from an insurance company until you have consulted with a lawyer at Munley Law
