The Consequences of a Collision
Even when obeying all traffic laws, motorcyclists are frequently not seen by other motorists. In collisions, injuries can be catastrophic or even fatal, no matter the gear the rider was wearing. Data shows that nearly a quarter of motorcycle accident victims sustain injuries in multiple locations, with 18 percent suffering permanent disability due to head injuries and 10 percent suffering spinal cord injury that leads to paraplegia and quadriplegia.
Some of the types of dangerous or life-threatening injuries that can occur in a motorcycle accident include:
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spine injuries
- Broken or shattered bones
- Soft tissue damage
- Internal injuries
- Broken hands
- Brain injuries
Obtaining the Compensation You Need
Many of the injuries listed above can have permanent damage, such as spine, neck, and head injuries. In these cases, the victim may need extensive and ongoing medical care, possibly for the rest of their life.
Some common complications riders face following an accident include:
- Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Compromised motor skills
- Pinched nerves that can cause extraordinary pain
- Loss of sensation in various parts of the body
- Sexual dysfunction
- Problems with the digestive and respiratory systems
If the injured person was a breadwinner in a family, and now is unable to work, it is possible that a claim for lost wages and future lost wages can be made successfully. It is hard enough to face the difficulty of an injured family member and the emotional devastation involved, but facing financial problems due to the accident can be overwhelming.
Representation with Insurance Companies
When dealing with an insurance company, it is crucial that you have legal representation and that you do not accept an insurance settlement without first consulting with an attorney. These companies like to act fast in order to downplay the severity your injuries, offer a quick settlement, and close the case. In many cases, there are more types of compensation available to you that the insurance company will not mention.
A personal injury attorney from Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates can review your case and help you obtain the best possible outcome for your situation. If the settlement offered by the insurance company is not adequate, we will fight for you in court.
