A devastating accident occurred on I-95 in South Philadelphia this month involving a motorcycle and a large semi-truck. These types of accidents with towering trucks are a biker’s worst nightmare. Motorcycle accidents involving large trucks are especially damaging because of the big rig’s size, while motorcycles are particularly vulnerable because of their small size. Just after midnight, the big rig and motorcycle collided, and the rider was thrown from his bike. The rider was promptly taken to the hospital where doctors stabilized him.
Despite this rider’s serious injuries, he is very lucky to be alive after such a catastrophic crash. If you or a loved one is involved in a motorcycle crash, then the first thing you need to do is be medically treated for your injuries. When an individual is thrown from a bike, they can easily go into shock and not be aware of the extent of their injuries. The responding police officers will investigate the causes of the accident. As soon as you are able, you need to contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney and begin the process of conducting an independent investigation into the crash. Do not talk to your insurance companies about any injuries or medical treatment until you’ve spoken to a lawyer.
