Are you a motorcyclist who has recently been involved in an accident? Do you feel the other party involved was responsible for the accident and injuries you acquired? If so, you may be awarded compensation. Motorcycle accidents are often very serious and can leave the cyclist severely injured. If the accident has left you temporarily or even permanently disabled, a settlement may be granted to you so that you can cover medical expenses and make up for lost wages. A motorcycle accident lawyer can get you the reimbursement you deserve for your pain and suffering.
Car accidents are one of the most common types of accidents but because the driver is protected by the frame of their car, they aren’t always put in danger. This isn’t the case for motorcycle riders. Motorcyclists are much more likely to be severely injured or even killed in accidents than automobile drivers. Short of wearing a helmet and heavy clothing, there is very little protection shielding the rider from the road. Many injuries can result from the rider being thrown from the bike on the impact. These injures may include things such as trauma to the head, damage to the spinal cord, road rash, broken bones, and possibly eventual scarring. If you’ve suffered any of the above mentioned injuries in a motorcycle accident, contact a Milwaukee professional motorcycle accident lawyer to represent you.
When It’s Not Your Fault
There are a number of reasons why accidents occur. Motorcycle accidents can usually be traced back to an error made on the part of the other party involved. It’s likely they weren’t paying attention, didn’t see the motorcycle in time to stop, or didn’t know that motorcycles are entitled to the entire lane on a street or highway. However, unfortunately the fact is that the motorcycle rider almost always suffers the brunt of the accident. If you feel you were the victim of a negligent driver and are entitled to a settlement, it’s important to seek legal representation right away to help guide you through the claims process.
