The courts of Pennsylvania have long recognized the danger posed by motorcycles to both their operators and to others on the roadway. The Pennsylvania courts have gone so far as to reference motorcycles as being an “instrument of danger” on highways. The truth is that motorcycles are dangerous, but the special danger is to the driver of the motorcycle. There are increased dangers and risks inherent in the operation of motorcycles on public roadways. Unfortunately, due to the lack of protection between the operator of a motorcycle and anything that he or she contacts there is rarely a motorcycle accident that doesn’t involve a fatality or catastrophic injuries. It does not tax the intellect to recognize that when a motorcyclist is involved in an accident the damages are severe.

Lawyer for motorcycle accident in Pittsburgh.

To properly evaluate any type of motor vehicle accident it is imperative that your motorcycle lawyer properly classify the type of vehicle being driven.  Listed below are the definitions for three categories of motorcycles.

  • “Motorcycle” — A motor vehicle having a seat or saddle for the use of the rider and designed to travel on not more than three wheels in contact with the ground.
  • “Motor-driven cycle” — A motorcycle, including a motor scooter, with a motor which produces not to exceed five brake horsepower.
  • Motorized pedalcycle” — A motor-driven cycle equipped with operable pedals, a motor rated no more than 1.5 brake horsepower, a cylinder capacity not exceeding 50 cubic centimeters, an automatic transmission, and a maximum design speed of no more than 25 miles per hour or an electric motor-driven cycle equipped with operable pedals and an automatic transmission powered by an electric battery or battery-pack powered electric motor with a maximum design speed of no more than 25 miles per hour.

Motorcycles lack the protection and safety features of automobiles. The operator of a closed vehicle has protection against the elements, such as loose stones kicked up by other vehicles, insects, and falling objects.  Even the most experienced motorcyclist can find himself in a perilous situation caused by direct exposure to the elements.

"Some one hit me while on my motorcycle and afterward I was reluctant to do anything let alone get an attorney.. It was life changing for me and some very dark days. Somehow I managed after some time and much despair to seek an attorney. I wanted someone that had personal touch as my state of mind was somewhat skeptical and weary from what I'd been through and with the best research I could I luckily ran across David's new law firm and with a phone call not only did David answer my questions he saw me later in the evening after hours and once I realized he was the man to represent me he acted on my behalf swiftly. Through all of the issues this created in my personal and professional life I didn't have a single worry as to his handling on my case and helped to put at ease many concerns I had along with keeping me current and updated at all times and reachable for any questions I had. I had great representation from a very conscientious, professional attorney who is a blessing for our Pittsburgh community.. Thank you David....."
