Pittsburgh Lawyers Representing Motorcycle Victims
Motorcycles are sleek, efficient and beautiful machines, and the people who ride them are passionate about the pleasures of driving on the open road. The overwhelming majority of motorcyclists are safe and careful drivers, but we often find that there is a prejudice against bike owners. When an accident occurs, other drivers and insurance companies want to blame the bike owner. Our job in representing motorcycle owners is to make sure that the prejudice is wiped away and that they are treated fairly for the injuries that they suffered.
I’m attorney John Gismondi, founder of Gismondi & Associates. We are lawyers who represent people in Pittsburgh and throughout Pennsylvania who have been injured as a result of motorcycle accidents. A powerful lawsuit can provide full and complete compensation for you, and it can also send a strong message that will help to prevent some other person from being injured by a similar mistake or accident.
Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents can be caused by a variety of circumstances. Sometimes they are caused by other drivers on the road who are disrespectful of people on bikes. Other times, they can be caused by defects in the design or operation of the motorcycle. Dangerous conditions of streets or highways can also cause motorcycle accidents.
We thoroughly investigate all motorcycle accidents and often make use of engineers and professional investigators to help us reconstruct exactly what happened at the time of the accident. In some instances, we have actually re-created or simulated the accident to prove how it occurred. Regardless of the circumstances of the accident, our number one priority from start to finish in these cases is to wipe away any preconceived idea that the motorcyclist is the “bad guy.” After that, our goal is to obtain the most complete recovery we can to compensate the motorcyclist for all of his or her injuries.
Often those injuries can be serious … very serious because riding in the open air exposes the head and body to more direct trauma in an accident. Nevertheless, motorcyclists are still entitled to be fully compensated for their injuries, particularly when they are fully obeying the rules of the road.
A Lawsuit Provides Compensation … And More
We wish that we could turn back the hands of time and undo what has happened to you or your family. Unfortunately, no lawyer has that power. However, with a successful lawsuit we can reduce the burdens you face by obtaining full and complete compensation for everything that you have experienced as a result of your injury or the death of a family member … mounting medical bills, lost wages, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, and perhaps most importantly, the loss of the relationship and companionship of a loved one.
We will also fight for compensation to cover everything that you may face in the future. Motorcycle accident cases often involve long-term needs for things such as future surgeries, specialized equipment, personal attendant care and much more. Our goal is to provide full compensation for all of those needs so that you or your loved one can enjoy the very best quality of life possible and make the most of a difficult situation. After all, that is the least that you are entitled to.
Aside from providing you with full and complete compensation, a lawsuit can do one other very important thing: It can force changes to be made by the people who caused the injury to you or a loved one so that no other person or family has to go through what you have.
