Ride a motorcycle? The Most Important Gear to Get:
  • Published: February 25, 2017

Underinsured (UIM) and Uninsured (UM) Motorist Insurance. I know……you were hoping it was a leather jacket, but hear me out. First, what is underinsured (UIM) and uninsured (UM) insurance? UIM and UM insurance will pay for injuries such as medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages that result from a motorcycle accident caused by a motorist who either has no insurance or too little insurance to cover all of your injuries. “In other words, UM/UIM coverage protects YOU from all the crazies out there riding around with minimum policies.” So if some kid in a 2000 Honda Civic rear-ends… Read More

  • Published: February 20, 2017

3 Things you should Do in a Motorcycle, Car or Bicycle Accident Call an experienced Pennsylvania Injury lawyer as soon as possible after an accident occurs. I can be reached at (267) 225-3317.  You should hire a lawyer before you even speak to your own insurance company.  Giving a “recorded statement” may later be used against you…(see #1 below).

  • Published: February 13, 2017

It’s happened to us all before…enjoying a nice riding through the rolling hills of Pennsylvania when you come across a stoplight on a rural stretch. You stop at the red light and wait and wait AND WAIT. The light cycles through all the intersections except yours before you just give up, take a good look around and roll on through. Most riders have encountered these “smart” stoplights that fail to recognize motorcycles. I’ve even seen bikers park in the road and walk over to press the crosswalk button rather than break the law. Now, thanks to Senate Bill 1267, commonsense… Read More

  • Published: February 12, 2017

Cycling is one of the fastest and most enjoyable ways to get around Philadelphia. Now more than ever, people are commuting by bicycle due to the new bike lanes and bike shares springing up throughout the city. With more people riding bikes, It's not uncommon to see people riding on the sidewalks, the wrong way down a one lane street or blasting through a stop sign. Common sense will tell you that some of those moves are unwise, but what are the laws about biking in Philadelphia? When I ride to work in Philly, my number one law is self-preservation.… Read More

Pennsylvania Auto Accidents: What is Limited Tort?
  • Published: February 9, 2017

Most people haven’t heard the term “Limited Tort” until after being injured in a car accident. Simply put, “Limited” Tort limits your right to sue for pain and suffering in an accident that was not your fault. You can still recover for unpaid medical bills, lost wages and property damage, but not for the actual suffering and trauma you’ve had to endure. In order to recover for pain and suffering with limited-tort insurance you need an experienced Pennsylvania car accident lawyer. This is not something you can do on your own. Insurance adjusters routinely deny limited tort claims stating “the… Read More
