On Monday night, a motorcycle collided with a car in front of Orefield Middle School in South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. Around 7 pm, a 36-year-old woman pulled her car out of the school parking lot to pick up her 11-year-old son, when a motorcycle collided with her car. The 25-year-old motorcyclist from Breinigsville, Pennsylvania and his 21-year-old female passenger from Germanville, Pennsylvania sustained life-threatening injuries in the collision and were rushed to the Lehigh Valley Hospital – Cedar Crest for treatment. Both the woman and her son sustained minor injuries.
Motorcyclists and their passengers are afforded less protection, lack the same level of safety features that enclosed vehicles contain, and may sustain more catastrophic injuries when involved in an accident. Even if they follow the rules of the road, other motorists may be oblivious to their presence or fail to use caution around them, which could lead to personal injuries or potential fatalities.
If you or someone you love sustained personal injuries in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
