Auto/Truck Drivers and Motorcyclists In Lebanon County
Many vehicle drivers don't pay attention to motorcycles on the road, or they don't adjust their driving for motorcycles in traffic. The Lancaster County, Pennsylvania-area motorcycle accident lawyers at The Brod Law Firm are quite familiar with the personal injury liability issues surrounding such vehicle and motorcycle collisions. Indeed, in many motorcycle accidents, a distracted or inattentive car, truck, or SUV driver is negligent. Common motorcycle accidents of this kind occur when the car, truck, or SUV driver:
- turns directly in front of an oncoming motorcyclist
- pulls out into traffic in front of a motorcycle
- misinterprets the speed or handling capability of a motorcycle on the road
- at an intersection, fails to yield the right-of-way to a motorcycle rider
- runs through a stop sign or a red light
- never notices the motorcyclist on the street or freeway
- is distracted at the wrong moment, or
- is driving while intoxicated
Motorcyclists who have been injured in a collision with a car, truck, SUV or other vehicle are entitled to compensation if the defendant was negligent.
Motorcycle Accident Statistics
As the Lebanon County, Pennsylvania-area motorcycle accident lawyers at The Brod Law Firm can confirm, motorcycle accidents are not a rare occurrence.

In 2005 in Pennsylvania alone, 205 motorcyclists died in traffic accidents.

Motorcycle Riding — Advantages and Risks In Lebanon County
Motorcycle riding provides an individual with many advantages:
- saving money on gas
- less effect on the environment
- easy parking
- ability to use carpool lanes
- the “wind in your hair” (or helmet) feeling
However, because motorcycle operators are much more exposed than the occupants of cars or trucks, motorcyclists often experience major injuries and fatalities, compared to minor injuries usually sustained by passengers of the cars, SUVs, and trucks that collide with motorcycles.
Moderate motorcycle accident injuries include head, neck, and back injuries, as well as broken bones, cuts and bruises, and other soft-tissue injuries. For motorcyclists, severe injuries are often sustained in the event of a collision, including brain damage, spinal fractures, and internal damage. These types of injuries can be followed by medical, rehabilitation, and home care expenses, loss of income, and disability.
DUI Limits Have Changed
The legal blood alcohol limit for operating a motorcycle or other motor vehicle in Pennsylvania and most states has been reduced — from 1.0 to .08 (g/dL).
It's not very hard to achieve a blood alcohol limit of .08, so be careful. There is a major nationwide crackdown on driving while under the influence, and the penalties are not pleasant. The penalties are far more severe for motorcyclists than for automobile operators, and they include substantial fines, license suspension, and incarceration.
Note also that the refusal to submit to a breathalyzer test can result in a license suspension. Contact our Lebanon County motorcycle accident attorneys to find out more about the consequences of a DUI charge.
