Motorcycle Accidents Often Have Devastating Outcomes
Motorcycle accidents do occur all too often in the state of California. Statistics show that victims of these collisions are 28 times more likely to die from their injuries compared to individuals injured in accidents that occur while riding in traditional passenger cars. The reason for this is the lack of protection when riding a motorcycle. A helmet, though a good safety tool, can only do so much.
Common injuries seen with such incidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Road rash
Caring for any of these injuries may require extensive medical treatments and there are no guarantees of a full recovery. You may find yourself needing rehabilitation therapies, medication and further medical care for months or years. This can come at a great cost to you and your family.
Why Do These Accidents Happen?
Motorcycle accidents are usually the result of other drivers not paying attention. While this may be the case, these drivers will be quick to blame you or your loved one for the collision. It happens all the time. Our attorneys know this and will do everything possible to assist you in fighting back against such claims.
