You were on a motorcycle at the time of your Pennsylvania accident.
Whether you were a motorcycle driver or passenger, you were more vulnerable than the driver or passenger in the car, van, or truck that hit you. Without the protective metal of a passenger vehicle, you were more likely to suffer serious accident injuries.
Pennsylvania Limited Tort Law Recognizes the Vulnerability of Motorcyclists
Pennsylvania limited tort law is not absolute. There are exceptions that allow an injured person to recover full tort damages even if he or she is covered by limited tort insurance. Being injured on a motorcycle in a Pennsylvania accident is one of those exceptions.
Specifically, Pennsylvania law allows a person who is hurt on a motorcycle to recover full tort damages because a motorcycle is not included in the definition of a private passenger motor vehicle. Thus, if you were hurt while on a motorcycle there should be no question as to the type of damages that you are allowed after an accident.
