Philadelphia Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Providing Relentless Legal Help for Injured Riders
A motorcycle accident has the potential to cause catastrophic injury or even death — most often to the rider of the motorcycle as opposed to occupants of cars, trucks, or other motor vehicles. Even when wearing helmets and other protective gear, riders may experience life-threatening injuries that require extensive medical care, ongoing treatment, physical therapy, and assistive devices. They may be unable to work for an extended period, and they may experience lasting emotional trauma. They and their families may be significantly and adversely affected by the collision.
At The Villari Firm, PLLC, we fight for injured riders across Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. We know how difficult it can be for a motorcyclist to recover fair compensation after a traffic accident. These claims are often undervalued, delayed, or denied outright. Our firm puts pressure where it belongs, on the insurance carrier of the party that caused the collision. We pursue complete compensation by way of a negotiated settlement or jury award to help injured riders rebuild and recover.

Focusing on Motorcyclist Safety
According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), there were 3,194 motorcycle accidents in Pennsylvania in 2017. 180 of these were fatal. Although motorcycle collisions accounted for only 2.5% of all traffic accidents across the state, they accounted for 16.6% of fatal traffic accidents. This is proof of just how serious motorcycle collisions can be.
Motorcyclist safety is of paramount importance, and there are specific ways you can protect yourself:
- Always ride with your headlight on
- Wear a helmet and other protective gear
- Ride defensively—never assume a motorist can see you
- Use your turn signal or hand signals
- Obey traffic laws
- Never ride drunk or under the influence of drugs
- Always check your bike to ensure everything is in working order
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident in spite of your efforts otherwise, the person who is responsible should be brought to justice. They should cover your medical bills, pay for damage to your bike, and cover lost earnings. They should provide full compensation for every loss or injury you experienced.
