Riders of motorcycles in Pennsylvania are likely aware of the risks they take whenever they share the roads with other vehicles. For unknown reasons, some drivers of cars and trucks find it difficult to keep a lookout for bikers and collisions occur frequently. Unfortunately, motorcycle operators and their passengers have little or no protection against severe injuries, and in many motorcycle accidents, they lose their lives.
In what a fire chief labeled as one of the most unusual accidents he has attended to, a 39-year-old Pennsylvania man lost his life. This is just one of many Pennsylvania car accidents attributed to speeding. Reportedly, the fatal crash occurred in Mont Alto.
Pennsylvania farmers and their employees are at risk of suffering serious injuries during their normal activities on a daily basis. Farming is known to be an occupation in which people are exposed to potential life-threatening hazards. Although farmers typically know the dangers posed by particular tasks, they may not spare the time to take precautions that can avoid a work injury.
Motorcyclists in Pennsylvania and elsewhere are often at risk of injury simply due to their lack of protection. A significant percentage of motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers who fail to keep a proper lookout for bikes. Due to their smaller size, motorcycles are not always visible in drivers' rear-view mirrors, so bikers know they must be on the lookout for any unanticipated movements of other drivers.
