Pittsburgh Motorcycle Accidents
Why motorcycle accidents in Pittsburgh are so dangerous
There are several reasons why Pennsylvania motorcycle riders face greater risk for injury and wrongful death than other motorists:
- Many motorcyclists lack the proper training. According to the NHTSA, 29% of motorcyclists involved in fatal crashes were riding without valid motorcycle licenses.
- By design, motorcycles lack certain safety features. Unlike cars, trucks, and SUVs, motorcycles lack safety features like airbags, seatbelts, or doors to protect riders.
- Motorcyclists often ride without the proper gear. Unfortunately, the proper safety gear or clothing could have prevented riders’ injuries and deaths. Motorcyclists should always wear helmets, gloves, jackets, and long pants while riding.
- Motorcycles are harder to see than cars, trucks, buses, or SUVs. Because of their size and the fact that motorcyclists ride low to the ground, they are generally more difficult for other drivers to see.
Motorcycle safety and crash prevention in Pittsburgh
In Pennsylvania, learning to safely ride your motorcycle is easy and free through PennDOT‘s Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program (PAMSP). The PAMSP course teaches motorcycle permit-holders everything they need to know about riding a motorcycle. The course includes both a classroom component and a “skills” component where experienced instructors will teach you how to ride in a safe and controlled setting. Best of all, after you successfully complete the PAMSP Basic or Intermediate class, PennDOT will waive the skills test requirement for your motorcycle license. In addition, the course is a great way to lower your motorcycle insurance rate.
How long do I have to file my motorcycle crash case in a Pennsylvania court?
The time limits that states set for filing cases are called “statutes of limitations.” These time limits vary by both by state and by type of case. In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitation for bringing a claim for motorcycle accident injuries is 2 years, measured by the date of the crash. If your loved one died in a tragic motorcycle collision and you want to bring a case on his or her behalf, the answer is slightly different. The statute of limitations is still 2 years, but courts measure the 2 years starting with the date of death.
However, every case is different, and depending on the facts of your accident, different rules may apply. In order to get the most accurate information about your lawsuit, you should speak to an experienced Pittsburgh motorcycle lawyer.
