Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Riding a motorcycle is an exhilarating and exciting experience. For many, enjoying the fresh air and brisk breeze is a favorite hobby, while others use their motorcycles to get around their city. But if you’re a motorcyclist, you know there are serious risks involved.
The risks of riding a motorcycle include
- Less visibility
- Road hazards, like debris or wet pavement
- Less stability
- No seatbelt or airbags
- High risk behavior, like speeding or doing tricks
However, plenty of motorcyclists are responsible. In the event of an accident, the motorcyclist may not be at fault. A distracted driver may turn into their lane, for example, and collide with the motorcyclist. Like everyone else on the roads, motorcyclists can become victims of other people’s reckless and negligent behavior.
Since motorcycles are smaller than cars and offer less protection, injuries are often serious.
Common injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head and brain trauma
- Broken bones
- Road rash
- Internal organ damage
- Soft tissue injuries
The consequences of a motorcycle accident go far beyond injuries. After an accident, the victim will have to deal with medical bills. If they are unable to work due to their injuries, they may suffer from lost wages. In the event of a wrongful death resulting from a motorcycle accident, the family will confront funeral and medical expenses, pain and suffering, and adjusting to financial strains. Unfortunately, one person’s bad decisions can impact many people.
