Although riding a motorcycle is fun and exciting, it can also be dangerous through no fault of the rider.  In many motorcycle accident cases, there are multiple claims to consider.  Mr. Schwartz has brought cases against major manufacturers for defective motorcycle equipment, construction problems on the roadway, and the negligent driving on the part of others resulting in accidents and serious injuries.

Depending on the nature of your case, our team will secure appropriate expert witnesses to best prosecute your case.

Damage claims in motorcycle accident and injury cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey include:

  • past, present, and future medical expenses,
  • loss of earnings,
  • disfigurement,
  • property damage,
  • emotional distress, and
  • most importantly – your pain and suffering.

Some of our cases have included:

  • Claims against state agencies and municipalities for their failure to maintain highway systems.
