Each motocycle accident presents a unique set of challenges. The case must be appropriately handled right from the beginning. Often the police report is made unfairly attributing a portion of the blame to the motorcyclist. Injured motorcycle riders often contend with unpaid medical bills resulting from injuires sustained in the accident because they do not have the benefit of No-Fault or Person Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. Furthermore, if not properly presented to the jury by experienced trial attorney, a jury may conclude that a cyclist assumed the risk when he or she chose to ride a motorcycle.
Unfortunately, injuries from a motorcycle accident are particularly serious. The injuries caused by motorcycle accidents can be severe and permanent. Even with protectice gear, a motorcyclist is easily injured. Cars and trucks frequently do not look our for motorcycles. A rider can be forced to lay the bike down to avoid colliding with a large vehicle that has carelessly changed lanes without signaling or made a right turn without stopping. Motorcyclists suffer a wide range of catastrophic injuries, including fractures, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, and serious skin contusions. A motorcycle accident can easily result in a fatality because of the vulnerability of the rider.
