Why Are Motorcycles So Dangerous?
For many people, motorcycles are an economical means of transportation in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, motorcycle riders are especially vulnerable to injury on the open roads because they have little to shield their bodies in the event of a crash. Statistics show that motorcyclists are approximately 30 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a traffic crash and five times more likely to be injured, regardless of whether the rider takes the appropriate safety measures.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Wrecks
There are many different causes of motorcycle accidents, and many times another vehicle is at fault. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents are:
- Distracted driving: Motorists who are distracted by using mobile phones, adjusting the radio, eating, or engaging in other activities while driving may not notice motorcycles on the road.
- Lane splitting: Lane splitting refers to the practice of riding a motorcycle between two lanes of traffic. It can be dangerous if not done properly, as it increases the risk of accidents due to limited space, driver confusion, or sudden movements by other vehicles.
- Speeding: Excessive speeding reduces the amount of time available for a motorcyclist to react to changing road conditions, increasing the likelihood of accidents and reducing the ability to control the motorcycle.
- Impaired driving: Operating a motorcycle under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or certain medications can impair judgment, reaction time, and coordination, significantly increasing the risk of accidents.
- Lack of visibility: Motorcycles are smaller and less visible than cars, trucks, and other vehicles on the road. Other motorists may fail to see motorcycles or misjudge their speed and distance, leading to collisions.
If you've been injured in a motorcycle crash caused by another driver, you may be eligible for compensation. However, in these situations, don't expect the insurance company to let you win without a fight.

Despite Safety Precautions, Motorcycle Accidents Can Cause Severe Injuries
Even the safest motorcycle rider is at risk for accidents. In fact, motorcycle crash victims often experience catastrophic injuries than victims of other motor vehicle accidents. Motorcycle injuries can involve long hospital stays, multiple surgeries, and extensive rehab or physical therapy.
Medical bills can pile up quickly, and you may even find yourself unable to work for an extended period of time. In this situation, it is critical that you retain the services of an experienced lawyer who can advocate for every dollar of compensation you are owed to cover your losses.
Seeking Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle riders often receive a negative reputation as careless or reckless drivers, and insurance companies use this skewed perception to their full advantage when determining liability in an accident. That's why it's critical to contact an experienced lawyer who can protect your dignity and rights.
At Metzger Wickersham, our motorcycle accident attorneys in Pennsylvania have extensive experience handling motorcycle wreck cases, including those resulting in catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. We know how to get results by relying on evidence that supports the facts of the case, rather than bias against motorcycle riders. Our team is prepared to advocate on behalf of riders who were injured or killed due to carelessness or recklessness of another driver.
