Helping Motorcyclists After A Life-Changing Crash
For motorcyclists, accidents often bring on devastating injuries. Recovery times are long, treatment is painful and some injuries never fully heal. Disability is a serious concern. Even temporary disability can dramatically impact employment, wages, relationships and many other areas of a person’s life.
After all, motorcycle helmets and other safety gear help but you’ll never have as much protection as someone inside of a car. An accident may not injure the car driver at all, even if he or she negligently caused that crash, but you could wind up in the hospital for weeks or months.
Motorcycle crashes also carry a disproportionate risk of death, specifically for the motorcyclist involved. One report from the federal government, which looked at deaths per mile traveled, claimed that the fatality rate was 29 times higher for motorcyclists than it was for people in cars.
Compensating Victims Of Car-Motorcycle Collisions
As a motorcyclist, you have to face these risks when you get on the road. Another driver can make a mistake you can’t avoid, causing a crash and putting you in the hospital. You can face lost wages, high medical bills, the need for lifelong care after a disability and many other costs.
