Motorcycle Accidents in Pennsylvania
Motorcycle accidents are known for being some of the most severe and catastrophic accidents on our roads in Pennsylvania. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists have no protection from harm when they are involved in an accident, aside from the helmet that they are wearing. Especially if a motorcyclist is thrown onto the ground, the results could be life-changing. In 2020, it was reported that 215 people lost their lives in Pennsylvania motorcycle accidents.
