Available Damages for Motorcycle Crash Victims

Under Pennsylvania law, many types of damages may be available to motorcycle crash victims. The most common types are discussed below.

Medical Expenses

Most people would expect to recover their medical expenses following a motorcycle accident, but many may not realize the complexity or extent of those expenses. Depending on the circumstances of your case, these may include the following:

  • Medical treatment costs, including doctor visits, surgeries, and hospitalizations
  • Therapy costs, including physical therapy and occupational therapy
  • Medication costs, including for pain management
  • Medical equipment costs

In addition, you may pursue compensation for your medical costs in the future. Medical expenses don’t necessarily end just because you have reached a settlement or filed suit.

Lost Wages, Both Past and Future

If you miss work because of your injuries, you may recover your lost wages. Compensation may include loss of vacation time or sick time.

If you cannot return to work because of your injuries, then you may be entitled to compensation for the lost wages you would have earned until retirement age. In addition, if you cannot collect a full retirement or pension because of your inability to work, you may also receive compensation.

If you can return to work but have a lower earning capacity because of your work, you may receive compensation for the difference. Your injuries may affect your ability to work to the extent that you can only perform a lower-paying job than you did before your injuries. In that case, you can pursue compensation for the loss of the future earnings you would have made if not for your injuries. You often need expert testimony to establish your earning potential and the effects of your injuries.

Property Damage

If the accident damaged your motorcycle or other property, you may be entitled to repair or replacement costs. You may also receive compensation for other property damaged in the accident, such as your helmet.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering damages can be difficult to measure. They include any emotional distress that you incurred because of the motorcycle accident itself, as well as any emotional distress that you experienced because of your injuries.

Wrongful Death

If you are the surviving spouse, child, or parent of someone who died in a motorcycle accident, or you are the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate, then you may be able to sue for wrongful death. In a wrongful death suit brought by a family member, the damages may include the loss of the victim’s future earnings and the loss of the person’s love and companionship, as well as any out-of-pocket expenses.

What Is My Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?

What your case is worth depends on several factors. These may include the following:

  • The circumstances surrounding the accident
  • The extent of your injuries
  • The insurance coverage available
  • Whether your own negligence contributed to the accident, and if so, by how much

The best way to determine your case’s value is by contacting a local, experienced personal injury attorney in Bucks County.

Common Injuries We Handle in Motorcycle Accident Cases

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, 3,475 motorcycles were involved in traffic wrecks in the state in 2022. These accidents resulted in 217 fatalities and 3,148 serious injuries. These numbers represent millions of dollars in damages for victims and their families. Nationwide, according to the most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists have a fatality rate nearly 24 times higher than passenger car occupants per mile traveled.

Motorcycle riders do not have the protective frame of a vehicle to shield them during an accident. As a result, the following types of injuries are common in motorcycle crashes:

  • Traumatic brain injuries: A motorcycle accident head injury is common—especially among those who are not wearing a helmet at the time of the wreck.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Injuries to the spinal cord can cause partial paralysis, nerve damage, and chronic pain that permanently affects victims.
  • Fractured bones: Broken bones can have long-term effects and impact a person’s ability to work, move, and enjoy life as they did before the accident.
  • Road rash and other burn injuries: Painful burns and road rash can cause physical and mental scarring for motorcycle crash victims.
  • Lower extremity injuries: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that lower extremity injuries, including hip, leg, knee, ankle, and foot injuries, frequently result from motorcycle accidents.
  • Limb amputations: Severe wrecks can lead to limb amputations that completely change the lives of victims and their families.
  • Wrongful death: Many motorcycle crashes result in the sudden loss of a loved one. If you lost a family member in a motorcycle accident, you may qualify to recover damages.

Our experienced motorcycle crash attorneys in Bucks County can help you claim compensation if you’ve suffered any of these injuries. Schedule your free consultation now to learn more about our motorcycle accident law firm in Bucks County.

Proving Liability in a Bucks County Motorcycle Crash

All drivers have a legal duty to operate their vehicles safely and follow the rules of the road. If a driver breaches this duty of care and causes an accident, they are negligent and may be liable for damages. To win your case, we will need to prove all the elements of negligence to recover damages:

  1. Duty: First, you must establish there was a legal duty of care. All drivers must operate their vehicles safely and obey traffic laws.
  2. Breach of duty: When drivers fail to do what the law requires, they breach their duty of care.
  3. Causation: Next, you must show that the driver’s breach of duty caused the motorcycle accident.
  4. Damages: The last element of negligence is proving your damages resulted from the motorcycle crash.

If negligence or reckless actions led to your wreck, a Pennsylvania motorcycle accident lawyer can help you take legal action and hold the responsible party accountable. Contact us for an initial consultation to see if you have a case.

Pennsylvania Helmet Laws for Motorcyclists

Under Pennsylvania law, motorcyclists must wear a helmet unless they are over the age of 21 and meet one of the following two requirements:

  1. Two years of motorcycle riding experience
  2. Completed an approved safety course

Additionally, Pennsylvania motorcycle laws require that helmets meet the standards set by the United States Department of Transportation, have a Department of Transportation sticker on the helmet, and have a label stating the following:

  • Name of the manufacturer
  • Model of the helmet
  • Size
  • Manufacturing date

You must also have protective eyewear to shield you from flying debris that might impair your vision. These safety measures are designed to protect you from road hazards and serious injuries if you’re involved in a motorcycle accident.
