Pennsylvania Pedestrian Accident Send Two to the Hospital
Early this week, a Western Pennsylvania woman was across the street with her two children when a motorcycle struck her. The motorcycle accident caused the woman and the motorcyclist to suffer serious injuries. They were both taken to the hospital
Police in the area are still investigating the motorcycle/pedestrian accident to determine the cause of the collision. At the moment, the individual with the most severe injuries is the motorcycle rider who is fighting for their life. There is no word yet on whether or not the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident or not.
Motorcycle accidents are often very serious for several reasons:
• Lack of Safety Devices – Motorcycles don’t have the protective frame or airbags that cars have, leaving riders exposed to outside forces and injuries.
• Higher Speeds – Motorcycle riders often ride faster than cars, giving them less time to react to road conditions and hazards. This may be the case in this motorcycle accident.
• Lack of Experience – As soon as riders learn how to drive a motorcycle, they often purchase bigger, faster, heavier bikes that are above their experience level.
In most situations where a pedestrian is injured in a car accident, bus accident, or motorcycle accident, the fault is that of the driver of the vehicle. Sometimes, however, pedestrians can be at fault if they jump into traffic.
If you or someone you know has been involved in a pedestrian accident, either driving a vehicle or getting hit by a vehicle, compensation for injuries may be recovered. To learn more about pedestrian accident, please contact an experienced pedestrian accident attorney in your area to schedule an initial consultation.
