York Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Representing Injured Riders in York & Throughout Pennsylvania
Motorcycle deaths occur 28 times more frequently than fatalities involving other vehicles, according to 2016 fatal crash data from the NHTSA. Motorcycles don’t protect riders, making them vulnerable in the event of an accident. More than 3,100 riders are injured in motorcycle accidents every year; motorcycle accidents make up 16.6 percent of all vehicle collision fatalities. Even though the stakes of riding a motorcycle are life-threatening, riders are usually not the cause of accidents—it’s usually drivers.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, but distracted driving is one of the most common. Distracted driving claims more than 3,450 lives every year. “Distracted driving” includes any activity that diverts attention from driving safety. Texting and driving is one of the most dangerous forms of distractions on the road because reading or sending a text message takes a driver’s eyes off the road for 5 seconds; at 55 mph, that is like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.
- Other careless driving mistakes include:
- Failing to stop before turning right on red
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Driving distracted while texting, eating, or talking
- Failing to yield the right of way for motorcycles
- Exceeding the speed limit
- Failing to check for motorcycles during lane changes
