Referred to as “donor cycles” by emergency room doctors, motorcycles are one of the most dangerous forms of transportation. A motorcycle accident is much more likely to be fatal than a car accident, as 13 cars out of every 100,000 are involved in a fatal accident, but motorcycle crashes have a much higher fatality rate of 72 per 100,000.
Motorcycle crashes can result in severe injuries and even wrongful death lawsuits that have to be filed by their grieving families. Motorcycle riders are being hit by a two-ton car, while the driver inside feels minimal impact.
Motorcycle accident victims are likely to suffer the following injuries:
One can probably guess that these injuries will leave victims with hefty medical bills. That’s why motorcycle crash victims should contact a personal injury attorney in Long Beach as soon as possible after an accident.
Injury attorneys who provide legal help for motorcycle accidents are experts in pursuing these kinds of claims for compensation. Your attorney will contact law enforcement officers to obtain the accident report of the crash. The accident report will list who the officer believes was at fault for the accident, which is who will end up being charged for your injuries.
The attorney will also help you keep track of all your medical bills. This includes emergency room bills for your immediate medical attention, as well as any bills from specialists you must see to rehabilitate your body, such as neurologists or physical therapists.
While you recover from your injuries, you won’t be able to go to work, so your attorney will also add up the income you are missing out on. In the event that you are so injured that you cannot return to the same job field, your attorney will also tack on “loss of future income” as something the guilty party will also have to pay for.
