Everything Can Change
In a second, a motorcycle accident can change your life and cause long term devastating consequences for the motorcyclist and his or her passenger. Motorcycle accidents can cause long term and life changing injuries that will range widely depending on the circumstances and speed of the crash, the build of the driver and any passengers, and other factors. While common injuries include skin lacerations and broken bones, they can also cause brain injuries, spinal column and spinal cord injuries, paralysis, disfigurement or even more life altering injuries.
And each year over 4,000 fatalities each year are caused by motorcycle accidents, sometimes after a prolonged period of coma or a vegetative state. No matter what the injury, the motorcyclist is at especial risk due to the exposed nature of motorcycle travel. While helmets greatly increase the chance of a motorcyclist surviving an accident, they cannot always protect against traumatic brain injury and a host of other problems including nerve damage, cognitive difficulties, and more.
No matter how much safety gear you wear or how quickly you seek treatment, chances are your life or the life of your loved one has been altered after a motorcycle accident.
It is well understood that motorcycle injuries can have longstanding effects above and beyond physical pain. Families can be devastated to find a family member’s personality or cognitive abilities have greatly changed. The ability to earn a living or perform normal job duties could be compromised. And the financial pressures can be severe, especially for conditions that require extensive and expensive diagnostics, repeated surgery, rehabilitation, and more. We understand the devastation a motorcycle accident injury can wreak on the victim and the victim’s family – and we help our clients pursue legal action against the people who caused or contributed to their injuries.
