Pennsylvania’s Bike Accident Specialists
Pennsylvania is cracking down on distracted drivers with new, more stringent laws to hold them accountable for their negligence. Nonetheless, when a car and a bicycle collide, it is the vulnerable cyclist who pays the price in terms of catastrophic injury with potentially lifelong effects. Even minor collisions can cause long-term pain and chronic health issues, and medical costs can quickly threaten your family’s financial stability.
At Kass & Moses, our attorneys are dedicated to defending the rights of injured cyclists, and we won’t stop until we get you the compensation you need to get your life back on track. Insurance companies will typically offer the legal-minimum settlement, but you may be entitled to much more. Costs mount quickly in the aftermath of a collision, and our attorneys will fight to hold at-fault parties responsible so you can focus on the process of recovery.
If you’ve been injured in a Pennsylvania bicycle accident, it is imperative that you hire attorneys who know Pennsylvania personal injury law. Call Kass & Moses for a free consultation to learn your options — and your rights.
