What should I know about being injured in a motorcycle accident?

As much as many people throughout Pennsylvania love motorcycles and rely heavily on them to get from place to place, it is important that they also understand the dangers associated with getting injured in a motorcycle accident. Unlike cars and trucks, motorcycles offer significantly less protection on the outside and therefore, typically result in more serious injuries when an accident does occur. When an individual is injured in a motorcycle accident, they may be able to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the party that caused the accident.

In a successful personal injury lawsuit, the injured party may be able to recover both economic damages and noneconomic damages. Economic damages may include compensation for medical bills, lost wages due to time out of work, and other financial burdens that may have been the result of the accident. Noneconomic damages can include anything that caused a significant negative impact on the individual’s life that were a direct result of the accident. These can include items that are not tangible, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and the loss of enjoyment of life.

It is important that if you have been injured in a Pennsylvania motorcycle accident, you discuss your accident case with an experienced personal injury attorney. An experienced attorney can help you fulfill the burden of proof in your motorcycle accident case.
