A: There are two ways to obtain compensation for wage loss caused by a motorcycle accident in Pennsylvania. First, if the rider purchased wage loss protection on his or her own motorcycle insurance policy, then the rider can simply make a claim under that policy. However, most policies only pay a percentage or maximum benefit per week or month. In most instances, the benefit is less than half of an average weekly wage.
The other way to receive wage loss compensation is by making a claim with the other driver’s insurance. In a motorcycle accident situation caused by another driver’s negligent actions, the injured motorcyclist can make a claim with the negligent driver’s insurance company. In addition to wage loss compensation, the claim may include:
- medical bills,
- property damage expenses, and
- personal injury pain and suffering.
