Providing Aggressive Representation for Injured People in North Georgia
Motorcycle accidents can be terrifying. When it’s between you and
the road or you and a much larger vehicle, your odds of being seriously
hurt increase significantly. This is in part because motorcycles don’t
offer much protection for riders and because safely sharing the road with
motorcyclists requires a level of care and attentiveness that many drivers
do not adhere to while behind the wheel.
Even if you are especially cautious while riding, you could still be injured
if another driver is distracted or does not exercise appropriate caution.
Many motorcyclists are cautious while riding but are still susceptible
to serious injury when another motorist pulls into their lane, doesn’t
check their mirrors, speeds excessively, drives while under the influence
of alcohol or other drugs, or exhibits other forms of reckless roadway behavior.
If you are a rider who has been injured due to the recklessness of another
motorist, contact the Richman Law Firm immediately by calling (678) 829-2826.
Damages and Losses Associated with Motorcycle Accidents
If you have been in a motorcycle accident, you know how devastating a collision
with another motorist can be. Because of the minimal protection motorcyclists
have in the event of an accident, a crash could result in any number of
serious injuries, including (but not limited to):
- Soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, concussion, or damage to the neck
or spinal cord
- Severe burns
- Internal bleeding
- Damage to internal organs
- Puncture wounds
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Injuries resulting in necessary amputation or loss of function in arms,
- Multiple fractures
- Road rash
If you sustain any of the above injuries or any other serious physical
harm during an accident, it could change the course of your life. Serious
injuries typically require extended recovery time, days spent in the hospital,
weeks to months in physical therapy, expensive medications, and sometimes
permanent disability. Your combined medical expenses are likely to be
more than you are willing to pay out of your own pocket, especially if
your injuries were inflicted upon you by a careless driver.
In conjunction with injury-related expenses, you will also likely have
to take time off work to recover. If you are paid hourly or max out your
paid time off, you could end up taking a financial hit and losing out
on the income you need. As your income decreases and your costs grow,
you could fall behind on important payments such as mortgages, auto loans,
etc. Should your injury keep you out of work for months to years, you
may lose out on important retirement savings, inheritance funds for your
children, and you could even lose your source of income entirely.
