Frequently Asked Questions
Being involved in a motorcycle accident can leave you with substantial injuries and uncertain of what you should or should not do next. Understanding some of the initial steps and knowing when you should contact an accident attorney can assist in maximizing your settlement. The following FAQs can help answer some of these more common questions.
When should I call a motorcycle accident lawyer?
If you have suffered any type of injury or loss from a motorcycle accident it is in your best interest to contact an accident attorney immediately. Motorcycle accidents typically involve more severe injuries and require an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer that understands the laws to explain your rights to you.

If I contact a personal injury attorney, is it expensive to file a claim?
Under our No Fee Guarantee, at Compass Personal Injury, you won’t owe us anything unless we win your claim!
When should I contact my motorcycle insurance company?
Regardless of fault, you should report an accident to your insurance company as soon as you are able after the accident has occurred. However, be sure to contact an attorney before making a recorded statement or signing any documentation regarding the accident.
Can I still file an injury claim if I wasn’t wearing a helmet?
Yes, you can still file an injury claim if you weren’t wearing a helmet. The helmet laws in PA state that you are not required to wear a motorcycle helmet under the following scenarios:
- Over 21 years of age who has had their motorcycle license for at least 2 full years.
- Over 21 years of age who completed a PennDOT/Motorcycle Safety Foundation approved motorcycle rider safety course.
- Driver or passenger of a 3-wheeled motorcycle with an enclosed cab
It is always a responsible and smart precaution to wear a helmet, however, if you meet the above criteria, the decision to not wear a helmet should not impact your right to recover compensation for the injuries you suffered. It is important to contact a motorcycle accident lawyer because insurance companies may try to place the blame of the accident on you if you were not wearing a helmet even if it had nothing to do with the accident itself.
Should I take pictures of the scene of the accident and damage?
If you are able, it is always a good idea to take pictures of not only your vehicle, but also the other vehicle(s) involved and the scene of the motorcycle crash itself. Be sure to capture as many angles, as possible, to help paint a picture of the extent of the damage and what occurred. If you are unable to take pictures, due to an injury, a friend or family member can always assist in taking pictures of the location and damages after the accident.
The at-fault driver’s insurance company contacted me and offered me a settlement to pay for my medical bills. Should I take it?
No, you should not accept any type of offer from the other driver’s insurance company without consulting with an accident attorney first. If an insurance company is willing to offer a settlement so quickly without an attorney involved, it is likely that it is much less than what you are truly due for the damages you have suffered.
If you accept an offer, you can no longer file a claim to collect additional damages if your injuries are more serious or have additional pain and suffering. Compass Personal Injury’s experienced personal injury attorneys can help you navigate any settlement offer and advise whether it is valid.
How long do I have to file a claim after a motorcycle accident?
The statute of limitations to file a claim in Pennsylvania is two years from the date of the accident. It is best to contact an attorney and file a claim well before the two-year timeframe is exhausted.
What else should I do after being involved in a motorcycle accident?
More times than not, a motorcycle accident can result in a trip to the hospital for one or all parties involved due to the severity of the injuries and accident. However, it is always important to seek medical attention after even suffering minor injuries an accident. It is possible that that your pain will not start to present itself until a day or more after your accident. Seeking medical attention will also help document your injuries and assist in maximizing the settlement in your claim.
