During the holiday season, people are looking forward to time-honored traditions and family gatherings. From a secret gravy recipe to the perfect gift for that special someone, excitement is in the air as this busy time of year once again gets underway. In Pennsylvania, another annual tradition already has residents buzzing, and a local man reminds people of the plight of victims of motorcycle accidents.
Each year, hundreds of hunters spread out across the woods and fields of the Keystone State in the hopes of tagging that trophy buck. While novice hunters may be excited to experience the thrill, others have decades of experience under their belts. One Pennsylvania man has been hunting for over 50 years, and despite some serious odds, managed to take down a deer that many hunters can only dream of.
The 75-year-old man captured the attention of hunters nationwide when a picture of the prized 13 point buck surfaced on social media. Such a deer is big news, but the man’s personal story is just as incredible. Decades ago, the avid hunter lost his leg in a motorcycle accident, and he now uses a prosthetic. Instead of giving up, he worked hard to overcome his injury and is proud to tell others about his accomplishment, a deer weighing about 200 pounds.
Though this story has a happy ending, it serves as a reminder that victims of motorcycle accidents may suffer injuries that last a lifetime. When such an accident is the fault of another party, a victim may naturally feel wronged. Victims interested in filing suit against the responsible party may do well to contact an attorney. An attorney can help a victim seek recovery of monetary damages to help cover expenses like medical bills, physical rehabilitation costs and loss of wages due to inability to work.
