Motorcycle Accidents

Ferrara Law Offices has achieved some of the largest multi-million dollar settlements in the greater Philadelphia area in prosecuting motorcycle accident cases. Properly prosecuting a motorcycle accident case requires more than a mere understanding of personal injury law or presentation of an injury lawsuit.  To the contrary, in order to properly prosecute a motorcycle case, a lawyer must understanding the dynamics of motorcycle operation, safety, mechanics, accident avoidance techniques, counter steering, weight distribution and the “real world” of motorcycle operation. Moroever, a lawyer must eveluate, and understand, the location of the motorcycle accident to determine whether there are any other contributing causes to the collision.

Motorcycle accidents nearly always end with catastrophic results, injuries and the inability of the motorcycle occupants to tell their side of the story. Many motorcycle accidents occur because of the lack of motorcycle conspicuity-or the lack of being conspicuous. Indeed, many motorcycle accidents occur because automobile operators do not see motorcycle operators.  Not surprisingly, many of these same automobile operators blame the motorcycle operator for speeding by reasoning that the “motorcycle came out of nowhere”.

It is no mistake that Attorney Robert F. Ferrara is a motorcycle enthusiast who has a lifetime of first-hand motorcycle operation experience and takes a particular interest in motorcycle accident cases.
