Unless this lady can prove she has substantial injuries herself she probably doesn't have much of a case.
If Ben should be found at fault the smart thing for this woman to do would just take whatever money is offered for the damages and let it go at that.

Pennsylvania's Helmet Law (Effective Sept. 4, 2003)

Pennsylvania's 35-year-old law requiring helmets to be worn was amended in 2003 to make helmets optional under certain circumstances.

According to the amended law, a motorcyclist will no longer be required to wear a helmet if the rider is:

? A person 21 years of age or older who has been licensed to operate a motorcycle for not less than two full calendar years.

? A person 21 years of age or older who has completed a motorcycle rider safety course approved by the department or the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.

? A passenger 21 years of age or older if the motorcycle driver meets one of the qualifications for not wearing a helmet.

Dunno, just food for thought.
I'm figuring he has an Ohio license, I'm sure he was riding motorcycles long before the Steelers drafted him.

Ben might have mad a mistake but he still is a very classy kid. i hope he owns up and sez dont ride without a helemt, hes very sorry for what he did to the team, his family, yadda yadda yadda. i hope he doesnt prove me worng here. after all as T Bradshaw said"See what happened to that idoit up there!" LOL and we are not the "idoits"

Wow Ben didn't even have a PA motorcycle license. So Ben didn't have no right to even be on that bike legally. I'm a huge Big Ben fan and have followed him since college. But this whole motorcyle accident and now it comes out he didn't even have a license to operate one makes Ben look really foolish.

I wish Ben the best but this just prove my point forget about the helmet. Ben had no business being on the bike in the first place. Oh well I'm just glad he is alright that is the main thing. If he comes back this year he comes back. If not I'll still be his fan no matter what. I just hope this accident woke Ben up and taught him to value life alittle more. You are never promised tommorrow. I have seen to many people die that were close to me to see that.

Get well soon Big Ben. I just ask one little thing. Park the bike for good now.

Referring to some of the people claiming to be mad or pissed:

Oh man people?who cares????

Even if he doesn't have a license?why would any of us be "mad"?? We don't have to pay the fine!

What is the penalty, a fine? $500? $1000? I am sure he will lose sleep over paying that.

Jesus, I am tired of people who claim to be mad. Ben wasn't wearing a helmet but that was LEGAL!!!! If someone doesn't like it, write your congressman.
People get killed in auto accidents, they aren't required to wear helmets. What if he fell down his stairs? God.

People keep talking about team loyalty?WHAT??!!!!! In pro sports??!??!??! Are you telling me Randel El was all about team loyalty when he signed his fat contract?

Let the guy ride his bike if he chooses. Let him pay the consequences and don't act like it affects our lives which is pathetic, to say the least. Sorry?my opinion.

At this point I just care about him being okay. He is a young guy bound to make mistakes.

Sorry but I disagree. Ben has to hold himself to a higher standard. He can't act like a normal 24 year old man. The Steelers have invested alot of money into him. I'm not mad at Big Ben. But I do think he was stupid for doing this. Also all you hear anymore from these pro athletes its a business its a business. Thats why I bring up the fact about the Steelers investing alot of money in him. Pro sports is a business and Ben had no business being on that bike with so much money invested in him not only by the Steelers but the numerous company's that signed Ben to endorse their products.
