Motorcycle accidents are in many ways similar to, but share unique differences when compared to car accidents. As with any motor vehicle accident, you are likely facing a complexity of issues involving physical injuries, medical treatment, lost wages, and property damage.

Why You Need a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Even with almost a million registered motorcycles in Pennsylvania, motorcycle accidents make up a relatively small percentage of accidents on Pennsylvania highways. However, motorcycle accidents make up a disproportionately high percentage of serious injuries and deaths to riders. Motorcyclists are often pushed into accepting blame even if the accident was not their fault. Recovering compensation following a crash can be difficult without the assistance of an experienced attorney. If you have been injured in a crash, your lawyer will help you pursue options for compensation.
Motorcycle insurance policies do not include personal injury protection coverage by default. Many insurance companies don’t even offer it for motorcycles. If you lack personal injury insurance or your motorcycle accident is exempt from its coverage, you may struggle to pay for your medical bills. This can be even harder if you cannot get back to work due to your injuries.
Being aware of the laws and your rights as a motorcyclist in Pennsylvania will help you receive the compensation you deserve. If you contact a lawyer immediately after your accident, they can begin to collect the evidence needed to build your case.
Each case is different, and the damages vary, but your lawyer is dedicated to helping you recover compensation for your losses, including medical bills and any property damage.
How a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Will Help
To help build your claim, your motorcycle accident lawyer will:
- Collect evidence and reconstruct the accident scene
- Review medical records and police reports
- Contact the insurance companies on your behalf
- Gather witness statements
- Investigate the other motorist’s driving history
