RECENT CLIENT REVIEW of Philadelphia Motorcycle Accident Lawyer John Fox
I never dealt with a lawyer before because I never had the need to, so I was unsure what to do; how to proceed, do I contact them or do they contact me, nor did I know what to expect. John Fox Law was excellent for me in every way and explained things to me in layman terms so that I understood everything. Whenever I called or emailed, I always received a prompt reply back from John himself. He always reassured me and I followed his guidance and wisdom. It was a lengthy process, but in the end, we both prevailed. I was very pleased with the outcome, in fact, it exceeded my expectations. I truly appreciate what he was able to do for me, both physically, mentally and financially. If I am ever in need of legal counsel again, I will be calling John Fox. ~Fallen Hero

What is the Fox Law Strategy?
“The Fox Law Strategy is to thoroughly prepare each case for trial from the beginning. Although most cases do settle before trial, cases that are thoroughly prepared for trial from the start have the strongest negotiating leverage and result in the best settlements. It is important that you choose a lawyer who is prepared to take your case to trial. Some injury lawyers have no intention of going to trial. Their strategy from the beginning is to settle the case. This weakens their negotiating leverage.

Motorcycle Accident Statistics
Statistics confirm that there is a high level of risk associated with riding. Motorcycle accidents account for about 10 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities. Motorcycle accident statistics compiled by the U.S. Department of Transportation indicate that a motorcyclist is 16 times more likely to be killed in an accident than an occupant of an automobile. These motorcycle wreck statistics also reveal that motorcyclists are three times more likely to suffer injuries in an accident than occupants of other types of motor vehicles. More than half of all motorcycle fatalities also result from the motorcycle impacting another moving vehicle.
- Motorcycle accidents are more likely to occur at night.
- The number of fatalities increases at night (60 percent of all motorcycle fatalities occur at night).
- Nearly half of all motorcyclists involved in fatal accidents were speeding.
- Approximately 80 percent of all motorcycle accidents result in injury or death.
Motorcycle Safe Riding Practices
The vulnerability of motorcycle riders to serious injury requires riders to be proactive in protecting themselves from injury. Reduce the possibility of being involved in an accident by following motorcycle Safe Riding Practices.
Mirror plus Visual Lane Check
When changing lanes, riders should first check using their mirror followed by a visual check to reveal a rider’s blind spot. Before every lane change, a rider should perform a full head turn to the left and right to make sure there are no vehicles in his or her blind spot.
Ride the Line when Making a Turn
Taking the proper line is the safest method for making a turn. A rider should approach turns wide, starting a right turn from the left side of the lane, or a left turn from the right side. Following the proper line requires the least amount of braking and lean, while providing the best view around blind turn.
Momentum tends to carry a bike forward during hard brakes. This shifts the weight of the bike to the fork, compressing it as the rear lightens and begins to lift up, making the rear brake easier to lock. This is the reason why the front brake is designed to manage a greater percentage of the braking load. Successful hard braking is a skill that benefits from practice. A quiet, well maintained road is an ideal place for a rider to practice hard stops. If during hard stops using mostly the front brakes, a rider is prone to locking the rear, he can try keeping the bike in gear when braking, and pulling the clutch just before coming to a complete stop.
Choose Bike Design Carefully for Safe Cornering
Cornering with certain bikes can be tricky. In particular, low to the driving surface types, make it easy to drag in a turn and lever weight off the tires to cause the bike to slide. One solution is to adjust the suspension to yield the maximum amount of spring preload on the shock absorbers. Another solution is to install longer shocks and fork springs.
How to be a Safe Motorcycle Passenger
- Do not mount or dismount the motorcycle until instructed to do so by the driver.
- Squeeze the driver’s arm before speaking into his or her ear
- Remain neutral when approaching a turn, except to look over the driver’s shoulder in the direction of the turn.
Handling an Unstable Surface
Over rough terrain such as gravel parking lots or dirt roads, avoid dropping your feet and walking the bike. The motorcycle’s low torque and low center of gravity provide adequate stability for many road conditions.
Avoid Obstacle Fixation
A rider tends to steer the bike in the direction he or she is looking. When approaching a pot hole or other obstacle in the road, riders should shift their gaze to where they want to go rather than focusing on the object they want to avoid.
Wear Protective Equipment
Wearing the proper protective gear is a fundamental motorcycle safety tip. In a wreck, boots, gloves, long pants, and a sturdy jacket can lessen the severity of cuts and abrasions, while the helmet, although not required in all states, can reduce the risk of catastrophic head injury.
Practice makes Perfect in Motorcycle Safety
Riding a motorcycle is a skill that is continually improved with practice. A variety of riding situations can be effectively recreated in a parking lot, allowing riders to practice maneuvers and techniques that will help them to be more prepared if they are faced with the real thing. Some exercises for riders to try:
- Negotiate tight turns with feet up
- Hard brake from 30 miles-an-hour
- Ride over a 2×4
- Lock the rear wheel to see how both the rider and bike respond
Don’t Drink and Drive
DUI laws apply to motorcyclists and statistics show that alcohol plays a role in a significant number of deadly accidents.
