An attorney who helps injured bikers get the compensation they deserve

If you're a motorcyclist who has been injured in an accident, do you know your options?

Attorney Edward P. McNelis knows that being in a motorcycle accident can be a terrifying experience. He helps the victims of motorcycle accidents get financial compensation for their injuries so they can focus on their recovery. He also fights for families who have lost loved ones in such crashes.

Each year, thousands of motorcyclists in Pennsylvania are injured in accidents. Some are killed. Since motorcyclists have little protection from a car or truck, injuries can be quite serious. A common injury is traumatic brain injury (TBI) from head trauma, even if a helmet was used. TBI can cause seizures, memory problems and changes in personality. Spinal cord injuries are also common. This can lead to significant pain or discomfort, or even paralysis.

Broken bones are also common in motorcycle accidents. The impact of the crash can break bones in the arms, hands, wrists, legs or hips. If a motorcyclist is dragged or thrown on the pavement, he or she may get multiple cuts and bruises. This is known as road rash or road burn.

Treatment for motorcycle accident injuries can be very involved and quite expensive. Surgery and hospitalization may be required. Your doctor may prescribe medication and physical therapy. You may even need changes to your home if you have trouble walking. The expenses can add up fast. And while you recover, you may be unable to work.

Some people think the men and women who ride aren't as responsible as other drivers, that they are aggressive and take too many risks.
