Pursuing Compensation Based on Your DuBois Motorcycle Accident
After a motorcycle collision, there are two ways an attorney from Berger and Green can pursue compensation for a client:
- An insurance claim based on the at-fault driver’s liability policy
- Suing the at-fault driver to hold them responsible for the accident and injuries
Even in cases that require us to go to trial, we usually begin by filing a claim and attempting to work with the insurer for a fair and just recovery.
Understanding the Value of Your Case
Whether we file an insurance claim or a lawsuit, the goal is to secure monetary damages for our client, including compensation for accident-related expenses and losses. This includes:
- Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages
- Current expenses, including treatment costs, property damages, and out-of-pocket payments
- Future expenses for ongoing care and support, medical care
- Current and future losses due to missed work
When injuries are permanent or catastrophic, the victim’s ongoing care costs and other damages may increase significantly. Our team knows how to determine the value of these future financial needs and include them in our case for an appropriate settlement or award.
If your loved one died from their motorcycle accident injuries, 42 Pa. C.S.A. § 8301 allows you to seek different damages through a wrongful death case. Our team can also handle this type of financial recovery.

Developing a Case to Support Your Right to Damages
When the team at Berger and Green represents a motorcycle accident victim, we must prove that fault lies with the other driver. We must also demonstrate that their insurance company is responsible for paying for your damages. This requires us to show how the accident occurred and the role each party played.
We must establish the at-fault driver acted negligently, meaning they were careless or reckless. To do this, our team will conduct our own investigation and look for evidence of the driver’s misconduct behind the wheel, such as:
- Texting while driving, which we may be able to prove using their phone records
- Failure to yield or come to a complete stop at an intersection, which could show up on traffic camera footage
- Changing lanes without checking blind spots or using a turn indicator, which eyewitnesses may be able to confirm
You can speak to a team member from Berger and Green about the strength of your case and your legal options today. Make sure to hold onto any evidence you already have – such as photographs of the injuries and damages – so that we can add this to your case.
You Have Two Years if We Need to Sue the At-Fault Driver
If we need to sue the at-fault driver to recover compensation for your damages, we generally have two years to do so based on 42 Pa. C.S.A. § 5524. This statute of limitations applies to both injury accidents and wrongful death actions.
It is not always necessary to sue to recover compensation in this type of personal injury case. We are often able to reach a settlement through negotiations with the insurance carrier representing the at-fault motorist. Either way, we will keep this deadline in mind and make sure your case is ready.
