Motorcycle Accident Injuries in Mount Lebanon, PA
Pittsburgh has no shortage of hazards for cars and motorcycles alike. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, we can help you recover compensation no matter how the crash occurred or who you believe might have been at fault. The Mount Lebanon motorcycle accident lawyers at Berger and Green understand Pennsylvania’s liability laws and have been helping injured clients recover fair compensation for many years.
Rear-end collisions make up a large percentage of both motor vehicle and motorcycle accidents. With distracted driving on the rise, thanks to smartphones and other portable technology, too many drivers simply do not brake in time to avoid hitting the car or motorcycle in front of them.
The old adage that the driver behind you is always at fault for a rear-end collision is mostly true, but not always. The front driver could bear liability in some situations, such as if they cut the other driver off and then immediately slammed on their brakes.
No matter how your rear-end motorcycle accident occurred, Berger and Green will investigate, gather evidence, and show how the other driver’s negligence caused or contributed to the crash. We will go after the insurance company and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Sideswipe collisions are common in motorcycle accidents, as they often result from a car, truck, or SUV driver failing to see a much-smaller motorcycle before changing lanes in traffic. A sideswipe accident can be devastating for the motorcyclist. It can topple the bike and dislodge the rider, causing them to suffer broken bones, head injuries, spinal damage, contusions, and abrasions.
A sideswipe collision between a car and a motorcycle is almost always the fault of the car-driver – rarely does a motorcyclist slam into the side of a car; it is usually the other way around.
If you were sideswiped by a car or truck and suffered injuries, we will hold the driver accountable and pursue their insurance company for compensation.
Drunk Driving Accidents
By impairing judgment and slowing reaction speed, intoxication makes a driver even less likely than normal to see a motorcyclist in time to avoid hitting them. If we find evidence that the driver who hit you was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, we will use this information to hold them liable.
We can help you recover compensation for your Mount Lebanon motorcycle accident even if you were partly at fault. In Pennsylvania, drivers in shared-fault collisions can still recover partial compensation. Our motorcycle accident lawyers will gather evidence and fight to minimize your share of the blame, helping you maximize the compensation you are eligible for.
It is legal to ride a motorcycle without a helmet in Pennsylvania if you are over 21 and have been riding for two years. If you have an accident, however, the other party may try to use your helmetless status to reduce your compensation, arguing that you would have been less severely injured under the same conditions had you been wearing one. Berger and Green can help you fight back against such a claim.
