Injured in a Motorcycle Crash? We Can Help.

Injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident can have serious and lasting consequences. Even at relatively low speeds, motorcyclists face the potential for catastrophic injury. You don't have to be an irresponsible biker to be injured or killed in a motorcycle accident. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation estimates that motorists are 35 times more likely to be killed on a motorcycle than while driving other vehicles.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., our Pittsburgh motorcycle accident attorneys put extensive experience and an unwavering commitment behind every case we take. Get in touch with our firm today at (844) 383-0565 to discuss your options in a free and confidential consultation.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., we work to level the playing field by putting our experience behind the fight for your rights. We know that you are facing hospital costs, long-term medical expenses, mounting bills, lost wages, and a range of financial challenges. Our Pittsburgh motorcycle accident lawyers are here to help you find solutions to even the most challenging of circumstances.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover?

After being involved in a motorcycle collision, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages. At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., we can help you navigate the legal process and fight for the compensation you deserve. Here are some important factors to consider when seeking compensation for your motorcycle accident:

  • Medical Expenses: You may be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills, hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation, and ongoing medical treatment related to your injuries.
  • Lost Wages: If your injuries have caused you to miss work or have resulted in a decreased earning capacity, you may be able to recover compensation for lost wages and future income.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation may also be available for the physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish you have experienced as a result of the accident.
  • Property Damage: If your motorcycle was damaged or totaled in the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for repairs or replacement.
  • Wrongful Death: In the tragic event that a loved one has lost their life in a motorcycle accident, certain family members may be eligible to seek compensation through a wrongful death claim.

Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Pittsburgh will thoroughly investigate your case, gather evidence, and work tirelessly to build a strong claim on your behalf. We understand the complexities of motorcycle accident cases and will fight to protect your rights and secure the compensation you deserve.

Proving Fault in a Motorcycle Accident Case

It's no secret that bikers face a stigma of being rebels, driving recklessly without heed for others on the road. If you're a motorcyclist injured in an accident, the other driver's insurance will do everything they can to paint you in a dark light so that they can avoid paying out a large settlement. You need a team of aggressive legal advocates who can fight for the justice you deserve and the compensation you need to fully recover from your injuries.

Our Pittsburgh motorcycle accident attorneys utilize the following means to prove who was at fault for your accident:

  • Accident/police report
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • Accident reconstruction tools

You shouldn't have to pay the price for someone else's negligent driving. Call (844) 383-0565 to get a free case evaluation with Robert Peirce & Associates!

Shared Fault in Motorcycle Accidents

Not all motorcycle accident cases are cut and dry; sometimes both the driver and the motorcyclist share fault for the collision. Pennsylvania has a modified comparative fault rule for these exact situations.

Under comparative fault, the injured party can still recover compensation in an accident claim, even if they are found to be partially at fault for the accident. However, with Pennsylvania's modified comparative fault rule, the injured party can't be more than 50% at fault, or they will receive no compensation at all.

How does comparative fault work?

When a motorcycle accident case goes to trial, the jury will determine two things:

  1. The amount of recovery to be awarded.
  2. The amount of fault, by percent, that both parties share.

If the plaintiff (injury victim) is found to be 50% at fault or less, that amount will be deducted from the initial recovery. For example, if the jury awarded $50,000 to the plaintiff and they were found to be 10% at fault for the accident, the final recovery awarded to the plaintiff would be $45,000.

To maximize your compensation, especially if you share fault, you need an aggressive legal team that can stand up for your rights in court. Contact Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C. today to schedule a free case review.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Collisions

Sadly, most motorcycle accidents are entirely preventable. When other motorists fail to use necessary caution when driving near or around a motorcyclist, the consequences can be deadly.

Motorists often cause or contribute to motorcycle accidents by:

  • Failing to use a turn signal
  • Changing lanes without looking
  • Quickly or abruptly coming to a stop
  • Opening their door into a motorcyclist
  • Miscalculating a left-hand turn
  • Driving while under the influence
  • Speeding or driving recklessly
  • Driving while distracted

If you or someone you love was injured in a motorcycle collision that was caused by another negligent driver, you have rights. Call Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C. to learn how we can help.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Like most vehicle accidents, you can suffer a wide range of injuries in a motorcycle accident. However, due to the fact you have much less protection than someone in a car or truck, you are more likely to be injured in an accident. Knowing what injuries you can sustain can help you watch for the warning signs in the unfortunate event you get into an accident. Here are some of the common injuries someone riding a motorcycle can suffer:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spine/back injuries
  • Road rash
  • Internal bleeding/organ damage
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Neck injuries

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Getting medical attention is the most important step after being involved in a motorcycle accident, and should be done as soon as possible. Once you are safe, collect the contact information of everyone who was involved (including emergency responders), and take photographs of the scene.

Before speaking to the other driver's insurance company or accepting a settlement, we recommend that you discuss your case with a lawyer. It's important to remember that the insurance company is not on your side. You may be entitled to far more money than they have offered to settle your case.
