Motorcycle Accident in Schuylkill & Berks County
Most motorcycle accidents in Pennsylvania are the result of other motorists failing to see the motorcycle in traffic. And the result is almost always severe injuries, long-term disability or death. The cost of medical treatment, the pain and suffering, the medical complications, the loss of income — the effects can be devastating. That’s why there are laws in place to help victims and their families put the pieces of their lives and future back together as much as possible.
The attorneys at Liever, Hyman &Potter, PC, are ready to help you with your motorcycle case. There are over 850,000 licensed motorcyclists in PA, including many in Reading, Berks County, and throughout central and eastern Pennsylvania including Philadelphia. Our lawyers understand that most motorcycle accidents in Reading, Berks County and as far east as Philadelphia are caused by cars violating the motorcyclist’s right-of-way. This often occurs at PA intersections where the car driver makes a left turn in front of the approaching motorcycle. Unfortunately, many people think most motorcyclists are risk takers, even when that is not true. The lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, PC, will work hard to make sure you get a fair shake and maximum compensation in your motorcycle case.

In Pennsylvania, certain rights of motorcycle accident victims are time-sensitive, and can be lost if not acted upon quickly. If your injuries were the result of another driver’s negligence, the job of our motorcycle accident attorneys will be to prove it and to get you the maximum award or settlement. To build your case we might add professional investigators, photographers, engineers (e.g. highway, forensic, product design) and other experts to our legal team.
We are a Reading, Berks County, PA law firm which has won numerous awards and settlements for victims of vehicle accidents, including many multi-million dollar ones.
