Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Harrisburg, PA

Protecting Injured Riders from Unfair Insurance Practices

From the wide-open highways of rural Pennsylvania to the gridlock in cities like Harrisburg, Lancaster, York, Scranton, and Philadelphia, motorcycles offer their riders a sense of emotional and economic freedom. Unfortunately, motorcycles also provide very little to no protection in the event of a traffic collision. As a result, motorcyclists commonly suffer very severe injuries that may never fully heal.

On top of these serious injuries, motorcyclists also experience an unfair stigma that they are reckless and automatically at fault for their accident. That’s why you need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer in Harrisburg who can fight for the compensation you deserve against unfair insurance practices.

How Do I Recover Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident?

Pennsylvania is unique in that it offers both “fault” and “no-fault” auto insurance. Depending on what coverage you have at the time of your accident, you will either be pursuing compensation from your own insurance provider or the at-fault party’s insurance.

  • Filing a claim with your own insurer - If you selected limited tort coverage through your insurance provider then you will only be able to pursue out-of-pocket expenses from your own insurance policy. You cannot pursue a claim for additional damages against the at-fault driver unless your injuries meet a certain threshold. With motorcycle crashes, this is not usually difficult to prove.

  • Filing a claim against the at-fault driver - If you have a full tort coverage insurance policy, then you will pursue compensation against the at-fault driver. These types of claims usually offer higher amounts of compensation, however, you now have the obligation to prove that the other driver was at fault for the crash.

Regardless of the insurance policy you currently have, you will still have to deal with an insurance company. Even your own insurance provider may not have your best interests at heart; at the end of the day, they are a business and want to make a profit. The experienced Harrisburg motorcycle accident attorneys at Metzger Wickersham are committed to fighting for your rights and purusing maximum compensation after a motorcycle crash in Pennsylvania.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Driver negligence is the leading cause of motorcycle accidents in Pennsylvania. Some of the most common examples of driver neglience are:

  • Texting while driving

  • Unsafe lane changes

  • Failing to check blindspots

  • Tailgating

However, driver negligence is not the only thing to blame for motorcycle crashes. Other factors such as defective motorcycle parts and unsafe roadways can also play a role. Pursuing a claim against a parts manufacturer or the entity responsible for maintaining roadways is much more difficult than filing a claim against an at-fault driver, but the team at Metzger Wickersham is skilled in litigation and can fight for your rights against even multi-million dollar corporations.
