Who Is Responsible for Your Accident?
Your accident may have happened due to someone’s negligence or careless behavior. At-fault parties in a personal injury case that involves a motorcycle often include:
A manufacturer may have designed a defective part on the motorcycle. As a result, your bike malfunctioned, causing you to have an accident. If so, the manufacturer may be liable for your damages.
Road Maintenance Crew
City officials and construction crews are responsible for designing, building, and maintaining safe roads. However, this does not always happen. Your accident may have been caused by loose gravel or potholes.
Motorcycle accidents are often caused by texting, distracted driving, reckless driving, or driving under the influence. Drivers may also overlook or ignore motorcyclists on the road. Your accident may have been caused by a negligent or reckless driver.
A pedestrian may have stepped out in front of you, causing you to swerve off the road. If so, they are responsible for your accident and subsequent damages.
Although your case may be clear-cut, the guilty party may deny any responsibility for the accident. Furthermore, the insurance company may turn down your claim. You have a right to seek legal representation from a Greensburg motorcycle accident lawyer when making a claim or bringing a lawsuit.

Proving Your Motorcycle Accident Claim
When you submit your accident claim to the insurance company, you will need to establish who is at fault for the accident and your subsequent injuries.
Our law firm may obtain evidence of fault and liability in several ways. We may:
- Speak with eyewitnesses
- View photos/videos of the accident
- Review all medical documents
- Hire expert witnesses
- Retrieve the accident/police report
- Revisit the accident for clues
Once we gather all the evidence, we use it to build your case and submit your claim to the insurance company. We conduct a thorough investigation to make sure that we have all the facts about how the accident occurred, who is at fault, and how the accident led to your injuries.
Damages You Can Claim in a Motorcycle Accident
How much your case is worth depends on the total value of your losses, which include both economic and noneconomic damages. We explore all of your damages to get the fair value for your claim.
It is impossible to put an exact figure on how much your case is worth. We analyze your case value based on the following damages that you may be able to claim:
Motorcycle accidents can cause traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries, broken bones, or internal injuries. These can lead to high medical bills, including surgical care, rehabilitation, or long-term care.
Being out of work for several weeks due to recovery may cost you considerable income. You may be able to account for lost wages, benefits, bonuses, or tips. If you are disabled, we can also calculate your diminished earning capacity or lost retirement.
Emotional or Physical Distress
Pain and suffering include both physical and emotional distress that you have undergone over a period of several weeks. You may experience loss of consortium, reduced quality of life, depression, or anxiety–all related to your accident.
In a wrongful death claim, you may be entitled to a settlement that includes compensation for your burial and funeral costs, pre-death medical bills, or pain and suffering from the deceased. Your family may also be able to include lost household income or retirement.
You do not have to stand alone when someone else’s mistake derails your finances. Call Berger and Green at (412) 661-1400 to find out more about what your case is worth.
