In Pennsylvania, the spring and summer months bring out motorcycling enthusiasts who take to the roads. But for some riders, sharing the road with much larger vehicles can sometimes result in motorcycle accidents. Getting into a motorcycle crash can result in serious injuries like a head injury, multiple broken bones, and soft tissue damage.
In some instances, injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident do not become obvious right away. Sometimes it takes a while for injuries to manifest; victims may not even realize that they were injured in the accident. It can also take some time to fully understand how an injury will affect someone.
People who are injured in a hit-and-run accident may never know who was to blame. Even when the investigation is ongoing, there is no guarantee that a suspect will ever be found. For a Pennsylvania woman who was hit by a driver who fled the scene, it was nearly five months before police arrested the man responsible for the crash.
