Types of Pittsburgh Motorcycle Injury Claims Our Lawyers Can Handle
Motorcycles are relatively small vehicles compared to passenger cars, SUVs, Vans and other vehicles. This can make it hard for other motorists to be aware of their presence on the road which can often lead to an accident. Additionally, motorcycle drivers lack most of the protective features a car has. Most motorcyclists only depend on a helmet, a leather jacket and a pair of gloves to protect them from an accident. Unfortunately, an accident at low or high speed can lead to devastating consequences.
For years, our motorcycle accident attorneys have successfully handled numerous motorcycle accidents. We are fully prepared to handle all the stages of your personal injury case. Some of the motorcycle accident claims we handle include:
- Amputations of arms, limbs, toes, or fingers

- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
- Wrongful Death
What Are the Leading Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Pittsburgh, PA?
Motorcycle accidents can happen for a host of different reasons. While every crash is unique and must be evaluated considering its specific situation, some factors tend to repeat in motorcycle crashes. Some of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents include:
Drunk driving or DUI (Driving Under the Influence) is a significant factor in motorcycle accidents. Every year, drunk driving claims thousands of motorcyclists’ lives despite stringent laws governing such dangerous practice. Frequently, motorcycle drivers must face negligent drunk drivers on the road. Drunk drivers are not only endangering themselves but everyone else sharing the roads and highways with them. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident due to another driver’s poor choices, our knowledgeable, skilled, and experienced lawyers can help.
For decades, speeding has been one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents in the U.S. Every year speeding is responsible for thousands of deaths and injuries. Despite all efforts to prevent speeding on the roads, negligent drivers keep breaking the law, putting themselves and others at risk of suffering life-altering injuries and wrongful death. Our skilled, knowledgeable lawyers can help you obtain compensation for your losses.
Unsafe Lane Changing
Many motorcycle accidents happen due to unsafe lane changing. Every driver is supposed to drive within the boundaries of their traffic lane. However, many negligent, reckless drivers weave in and out of their lane without using their blinkers. Recklessly changing from one lane to another without using signal lights can cause a severe accident, especially when there is a motorcycle involved.
Suing the At-Fault Driver After a Motorcycle Accident
After being involved in a motorcycle accident, it’s easy to feel lost. Not only do you have to deal with the time it will take to heal from your wounds, but you will also have to deal with greedy insurance companies to obtain compensation for your losses. Many times, the at-fault party and their insurance company will try to make a low-ball offer to save money. Do not accept any offer before talking to our skilled and experienced lawyers first. You may have a better chance of obtaining fair compensation for your injuries by filing a personal injury claim.
There are certain elements you will need to demonstrate with the court to have a successful claim. Once you have filed your personal injury claim with the court, you will need to show the following four elements:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached their duty of care
- The defendant’s breach of duty caused you harm
- You suffered damages
If you can successfully show these elements, the court may grant you compensation for things such as medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering, among other damages. If the driver who caused your motorcycle accident was drunk, you may be able to collect punitive damages.
