The Rider Is At Great Risk For Severe Injuries
Motorcycle accidents typically cause catastrophic or fatal injuries to the riders. The kinds of injuries they suffer often include:
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Leg injuries
- Severe road rash and lacerations
- Internal organ damage
- Burn injuries
- Back and spinal cord injuries
Even with a helmet, riders are at risk for brain injuries. Lack of protection for the rest of the body means that it only takes a minor accident to cause serious injuries to the rider. The driver of the other vehicle may not suffer any injuries if they cut off a motorcycle, run it off the road or collide with it.
You Will Likely Need Considerable Compensation After The Accident
In addition to hospital bills, doctor visits, rehabilitative therapy, medications and other medical expenses, you may need compensation for lost income, loss of benefits, and pain and suffering. In wrongful death cases, surviving family members may also need compensation for the burial and funeral, and loss of a loved one.
If you’re not sure whether the responsible party has auto insurance, call the firm to learn whether the attorneys can assist you in finding an insurance policy that will pay compensation.
