Pennsylvania Accident Caused By Ladder May Be Uninsured Motorist Claim

Comments Off

Reports are that a 43-year-old Beavertown, Snyder County Pennsylvania man is listed in serious condition following a motorcycle accident Monday afternoon June 4, 2012.

Michael A. Zimmerman was traveling south on U.S. 522 in Franklin Township, Snyder County, on a 2002 Harley-Davidson, when an unsecured ladder fell off a pickup truck traveling ahead of him. According to the reports, several vehicles quickly stopped before striking the ladder, but Zimmerman was thrown from his motorcycle as he attempted to stop rapidly. He was flown to Geisinger Medical Center.

The crash is still under investigation. If you have more information on the accident contact the Pennsylvania State Police in Selinsgrove.

This accident appears to have been caused by a phantom vehicle. This is one type of situation that uninsured motorist coverage will compensate you for and a reason why you should always purchase this coverage. In some cases, the falling ladder may be considered to have arisen due to negligence and a claim can be pursued.
