Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Harrisburg, PA
Justice for Injured Riders in Southern Pennsylvania
For commuters in Pennsylvania, motorcycles are an increasingly popular choice for affordable transportation. However, due to the lack of protection these vehicles offer riders on roadways, motorcyclists face a much higher chance of severe injury and death than car occupants - even when they follow safe riding practices as recommended by state law. Statistics show that motorcycle fatalities globally occur at 30 times greater frequency compared to those traveling in passenger cars.
Have you or a loved one been injured in an unfortunate motorcycle accident caused by the careless actions of another driver? The Harrisburg motorcycle accident lawyers at Metzger Wickersham have decades of experience and resources to thoroughly investigate your case and are committed to fighting for justice.

What Happens If the Insurance Company Says I Share Fault for the Accident?
Insurance companies often try to assign fault to motorcyclists based on a negative stereotype, but our experienced Harrisburg motorcycle attorneys are available to defend your dignity and rights in the face of such injustice.
When the at-fault party’s insurance provider tries to blame you for your injuries, there are two primary options that our team can help you with:
- Comparative Negligence - Pennsylvania’s comparative negligence laws allow individuals injured in motor vehicle accidents to still receive compensation even if it is proven that they share fault for the accident that caused their injury. However, the amount of compensation that can be awarded will be reduced by the portion of fault assigned to them. This is not a desirable situation for someone facing catastrophic motorcycle injuries.
- Disputing Shared Fault - When blame is placed on motorcyclists because of unfair biases, you can count on Metzger Wickersham to dispute these claims. Our firm works with a network of medical professionals, investigators, and accident reconstructionists that can provide irrefutable proof that you do not share fault and deserve every penny of possible compensation.
With vast experience in Harrisburg motorcycle accident cases, Metzger Wickersham is ready to fight for the rights of riders injured or tragically killed due to another driver’s negligence. Backed by evidence rather than any prejudices towards motorcyclists, we strive hard every day to ensure that justice is served after an unfortunate incident on Pennsylvania roads.
What are Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?
Motorcyclists face unique risks on the roads due to sudden changes in traffic conditions and other drivers' negligence. As a result, collisions involving motorcycles are often caused by vehicles failing to recognize or respect riders’ right of way - making them particularly dangerous for motorcyclists.
The following examples of driver negligence are some of the most common causes of injury to motorcyclists:
- Failure to check mirrors or blindspots when changing lanes
- Speeding, tailgating, and other forms of reckless driving
- Failure to check for oncoming traffic when opening a car door
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Distracted driving (texting, eating, etc)
- Unsafe driving during adverse weather conditions
