If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, don't speak to the insurance adjuster until you have talked to an experienced personal injury attorney. The evidence at the scene of your accident may seem cut-and-dried, but there are often circumstances that can entitle you to significantly more money than the insurance adjuster might offer.

Motorcycle Insurance Policy Consequences
If you've been in a motorcycle collision caused by another driver's negligence, it is reasonable to expect the other driver's insurance policy to cover your costs. Under Pennsylvania law, however, the type of insurance you carry can make an important difference.
In Pennsylvania, if you have purchased "limited tort" insurance, you may not be entitled to compensation for your injuries unless you have suffered a serious impairment of a bodily function, scarring or disfigurement. There are some exceptions, however. For example, if you were hit by an out-of-state vehicle, a drunk driver or were occupying a commercial vehicle, you are likely entitled to full compensation, no matter what your policy provides (even if it is a "limited tort" policy).
Also, you may have coverage on your policy for injuries caused by "uninsured" and "underinsured" motorists. These policy provisions protect you if you are in a car crash caused by someone with no insurance, a hit-and-run driver, or someone with insufficient insurance to cover your injuries.
