Choose an Experienced Motorcycle Accident Attorney
According the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycles account for only three percent of all registered vehicles in the U.S. Despite this, motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in a traffic accident that those driving in a car. In 2012, 52 percent of fatal motorcycle crashes were a result of accidents involving another motor vehicle. This is a sobering reminder that those who enjoy traveling the open road on two wheels are at a much higher risk than others, but often, the fault is not on the motorcyclist. However, we recognize the fact that these collisions are seldom caused by those who ride. More importantly, we understand that motorcyclists often suffer tremendous loss due to another person’s negligence on the road, far beyond the injuries suffered by the person who caused the accident. The legal team at Pavlack Law is here to assist with making sure that victims of motorcycle accidents are well-compensated for the pain and suffering caused by these unfortunately one-sided accidents.
It’s not uncommon to find that these accidents are frequently unbalanced regarding injuries, as the driver of car may not suffer the same catastrophic injuries as those who are injured on a motorcycle. These injuries are often severe and substantial, and can include:
· Road rash, abrasions, bruising and lacerations
· Fractured and broken bones, and torn ligaments, tendons and muscles
· Internal bleeding and organ damage
· Head injuries, concussions and traumatic brain injuries
· Back and spinal injuries
These types of injuries often require immediate and extensive medical treatment that can have a monumental impact on a person’s physical, mental, financial and emotional health. Once stabilized, victims of motorcycle accidents have little to look forward to when it comes to rehabilitation, as these injuries can result in long-term and expensive therapy. Recuperating from a devastating motorcycle accident affects more than just the victim, as family members often have to adjust their lives around those attempting to recover from their injuries. Unfortunately, some victims are never able to return to their previous quality of life prior to the accident, their lives forever affected by the negligence of someone else. The attorneys at Pavlack Law take all these factors into account, and will analyze ever detail in calculating the damages incurred by motorcycle accident victims.
