Welcome to Georgelis Injury Law Firm – this is where residents of Lancaster, PA come to seek maximum compensation and recoveries for their motorcycle accident injuries. Obviously, motorcyclists face an increased danger on the road due to almost nothing protecting them from oncoming cars, buses, trucks, and vans.
From broken bones to head trauma to lost limbs or death, lives can be altered forever! Your motorcycle accident-related injuries are among the tens of thousands of others across the country that make up some grim statistics. In 2019, for example, there were 84,000 motorcycle accident injuries in the US – more than 230 each day of the year – this, according to the National Safety Council.
The lion’s share of this alarming number has to do with other drivers who are acting carelessly and not paying attention to the motorcyclists on the road. If you or a loved one is dealing with injuries or suffered a wrongful death resulting from a motorcycle crash, our motorcycle accident attorney team is ready to serve you with compassion, skill, and decades of experience.
The last thing you want to do, on your own, is attempt to deal directly with an insurance company after an accident. Predictably, they will offer you a low-ball settlement for your injuries. Insurance companies’ strategies revolve around limiting their losses and closing claims as quickly as possible! Insurance companies are good at questioning an accident victim’s injuries and pressuring people into accepting their undervalued offers.
Our motorcycle accident attorney team will not allow you to be pressured or wronged by the system! If we take on your claim, you can be assured we will fight for your rights to the fullest extent of the law to ensure your losses and financial compensations are in the form of maximized recoveries.
Since insurance companies have aggressive attorneys on their side to try and minimize what they pay, shouldn’t you have the same legal prowess on your side to ensure they don’t succeed?
Many people believe they can’t afford a lawyer for personal-injury cases. Fortunately, at Georgelis Injury Law Firm, you pay no out-of-pocket fees or costs. We advance all of the costs of handling your claim. Also, our fee comes only if and when we get money for you. Once we take your case, relax and know that we are handling everything on the way to getting you compensated for your losses and pain and suffering.
While you recover from your accident injuries, our motorcycle accident-lawyer team will be working hard to recover the compensation you deserve! But please, keep the following in mind:
Do not admit fault since your perception of what occurred may not be 100%, accurate. Do not tell the other party involved, nor any witnesses, nor a police officer (of course, be truthful, but don’t offer opinions), that you accept any semblance of blame for the accident. Don’t even apologize since that could be deduced as an admission of guilt by the insurance company, and ultimately, jeopardize the viability or the value of your case.
Do not bypass a police report, no matter what. Whether or not the at-fault driver can be located, you will need a police report to support your claim with the insurance companies. The claims representative for the driver’s insurance company and your carrier will want a copy of the police report.
Do not assume you are OK since some injuries will surface days, weeks, or later after a collision. Pain that should be felt can be delayed and masked by adrenaline, especially in traumatic situations. Get checked out by a medical professional ASAP so there is a medical report on file. That information could dramatically help with the presentation and value of your claim, protect your legal rights and support the compensation you may be entitled to.
Do not speak with any insurance representatives except your own since what you say could be used against you. You have no legal obligation to speak with them and doing so can only jeopardize your claim.
On the flip side, the auto insurance policy you maintain, most likely, requires that you give your insurance representative a recorded statement concerning the accident and your injuries. It’s still in your best interest, however, to have a car accident lawyer prepare you to give this statement and to be present when you speak with the insurance adjuster. Insurance companies love to speak with unrepresented accident victims. Don’t fall into this trap: leave it up to our accident lawyers to deal with the insurance company.
Do contact Georgelis Injury Law Firm. This should be one of the first steps you take after a motorcycle collision has occurred, the police have been notified, and you have sought medical attention. As your legal counsel, we will waste no time notifying the other parties involved not to bother you and beginning to gather evidence to build a strong and valuable case for you.

The demands of life do not stop after an accident, and motorcycle accident claims include a host of damages such as medical bills, lost wages, property damage, mental anguish, and others. The important thing is to return to life as quickly as possible and as normally as possible.
When it comes to motorcycle accidents and injuries, our record of success with these types of cases is noteworthy. Various scenarios include, but are not limited to, the following:
Motorcyclists are at a distinct disadvantage when accidents involve large vehicles such as semis, trucks, delivery vans, and buses. Our motorcycle accident attorneys are extremely well versed with the provisions of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code. Our skilled negotiators, in and out of the courtroom, ensure that the damages you are facing will be fully addressed with financial compensation that is commensurate with your injuries. Call us immediately at 1-800-HURT NOW to discuss the details of your claim.
Motorcyclists must never let down their guard. Cars, trucks and vans hitting cycles is, tragically, very common. Given the drastic disparity in size and weight, between motorcycles and other motor vehicles, injuries, losses and damages for the rider of a motorcycle in an accident often are serious or permanent. According to the Insurance Information Institute, in an auto accident, almost 80% of motorcyclists are impacted on the front end, leading to tragic results.
If you experienced injuries as a motorcyclist that involved a truck, van or car collision, please call our legal team, immediately. We will advise you concerning your next move, forward.
Georgelis Injury Law Firm deals with pedestrian collisions of all types, and every type is extremely unfortunate. As a pedestrian, were you hit by a motorcyclist? Through street cameras, witness interviews, accident reconstruction and retaining of experts, we will gather the critical evidence needed to support your claim and build its value.
Expediency is very important – not just because of the statute of limitations (for personal injury cases involving vehicles, the statute of limitations in Pennsylvania is two years) – but because the insurance company for the at-fault driver will immediately circle the wagons and start working to build a defense and chip away at the value of your claim.
Never give a statement to, or sign an authorization or release for, the other driver’s insurance company. Georgelis Injury Law will handle all of these communications, making sure your rights are fully preserved and that your claim is presented in the best way possible. Waiting too long to get us involved can jeopardize the financial protection you and your family need and deserve. Don’t hesitate – give our team a call right away!
Mobile phones, as convenient as they are, can contribute to distracted-driving accidents when drivers use these tech wonders, irresponsibly. Drivers who should be watching the road instead of watching their phones can plow into a motorcycle in a split second.
If you, as a cyclist, feel mobile-phone usage contributed to your accident and injuries, our motorcycle accident attorney team can obtain evidence from a cell phone that could greatly help with the support and value of your case!
Then, of course, there are drivers who take their eyes off the road to converse with a passenger, change a radio station, eat while driving, or daydream. Regardless of the distraction involved, motorcyclists often face the consequences of severe injuries or death at the hands of drivers who are not fully engaged with the road. Call our team to determine if you qualify for substantial financial compensation – the sooner the better!
Placing a monetary value on a motorcycle injury can seem challenging. However, our injury law firm has the experience, resources and access to experts that are needed to prove the full value of your claim to the insurance company. We have handled thousands of cases, involving personal injuries resulting from motor vehicle and worked related accidents, and have garnered tens of millions of dollars for our Lancaster, PA clients. We put our experience and the respect we have earned from the insurance companies to work for you and your family.
Our motorcycle accident attorneys are extremely well-versed in evaluating and valuing bodily injury claims. Without top-notch lawyers on your side, an accident injury victim can fall prey to the tactics the insurance industry employs. As a result, tens of thousands of dollars, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, could be left on the table. Don’t let that happen to you! At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, we will fully determine what your injuries are worth and fight to recover this maximum compensation for you!
The seriousness of your or your loved one’s injuries will play a critical role in the final compensation outcome. A payout could range from thousands of dollars to a million dollars, or more, depending on the severity of injuries and what level of pain and suffering one is experiencing or will continue to experience.
Pain and suffering is a nebulous concept, and it is very difficult to place a monetary value on the mental anguish someone has experienced, and will continue to experience, as a result of a motorcycle accident. Our motorcycle accident lawyers know how to build and maximize these values due to decades of experience with bodily injury claims resulting from motorcycle accidents.
Bottom line: we can recover greater compensation for our clients than what insurance companies offer them without our involvement. We have handled cases where our clients have received 10-, 20-, even 50-times the amount of money offered to them before Georgelis Injury Law Firm became involved. Insurance companies employ highly skilled negotiators to do their bidding, and they take advantage of people who are in dire circumstances. Our injury attorneys will not let you get “starved-out” by big insurance – we will fight to get you and your family the financial compensation you deserve to protect you now and into the future.
Our Lancaster, PA clients benefit from the fruits of our labor as we search for any and all insurance coverage sources that could open the doors towards maximized recoveries. For example, there may be insurance coverage you may not be aware of, such as additional bodily injury liability coverage in the form of an umbrella policy. These policies often contain at least an additional $500,000 in coverage so it is critically important to ascertain their existence. Additionally, there could be other defendants partially at fault for the accident, so their liability insurance could be in play.
Our motorcycle accident lawyers investigate every nook and cranny to uncover details that might benefit our Lancaster clients’ cases and the compensation they should receive. For example, evidence from event data recorders, or “black boxes,” in vehicles can make all of the difference in establishing liability.
A vehicle’s black box could reveal valuable information regarding a commercial vehicle involved in an accident. Details including the speed of the vehicle, brake application, steering angles and other critical data are recorded by the black box. Thus, it is extremely important to have the best motorcycle accident lawyers in Lancaster by your side to make sure this evidence is quickly gathered and preserved.
