When You Have Been in a Motorcycle Accident, Get the Lawyers Who Will Fight for Your Rights
“The motorcycle swerved into my lane” . . . “The sun was in my eyes” . . . “I didn’t see him when I turned the corner.”
These are some of the excuses you will hear from careless drivers trying to explain why they hit someone on a motorcycle. But if you were seriously injured when another vehicle crashed into your bike, it is not your fault.
That accident has left you dealing with serious medical expenses, lost wages, and a strain on your family life, as well as your own pain and suffering. You need and deserve to be compensated for your injuries.

On April 10, 2010, Bob, a former Police Officer, was involved in an unfortunate motorcycle accident in Northeast Philadelphia on his way to a benefit for a fellow injured officer. He was nearly 1000 feet from the banquet hall when he hit a giant hole in the road going 50 mph and was thrown from his bike. The street had caved in three weeks prior but the city had neglected to place cones or barricades around the hole. As a result of this neglect, Bob suffered a fractured tibia and fibula and nearly lost his leg. He spent 1 week in a trauma center and 2 months in the hospital recuperating from his injuries.
While lying in the hospital, Bob began searching for an attorney to represent him in his case against the city. Bob was specifically looking for a lawyer with experience going after the city of Philadelphia. He came across Ed Chacker and contacted him. Ed immediately responded and came to Bob’s hospital bed to meet. Bob was impressed with Ed’s personable attitude, down to earth nature and his willingness to challenge the city’s negligence. Bob was very happy with the attention he received from the firm, the settlement amount and the time it took to settle the case. He describes Gay & Chacker as being a very responsive, big firm with the mentality of a small, personal firm that values their relationships with their clients.
