Let Us Help You Get Compensation for Your Motorcycle Accident Injuries
When you crash while driving or riding in a vehicle, there’s a good chance you’ll suffer at least one injury, whether serious or minor. When you crash while driving or riding on a motorcycle, your chance of suffering a serious injury is four times higher than it is if you crash in a passenger vehicle.
When motorcyclists crash, their injuries are often far worse than the injuries people suffer in cars, trucks, and SUVs. That’s because motorcycles offer no protection for riders during crashes. They don’t have seat belts, airbags, or steel frames protecting riders during collisions. Instead, riders must protect themselves with the safety equipment they wear.
Even the most well-equipped riders can suffer injuries and complications such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Torn ligaments
- Back, neck, and spine injuries
The cost of these injuries can be enormous. It’s common for motorcyclists to be out of work for months, years, or the rest of their lives. That means no paychecks all while facing some of the biggest expenses they’ve ever encountered.
At Skolrood Law Firm, we empathize with injured motorcyclists. Unlike biased insurance companies, we know that most motorcyclists are law-abiding riders who exercise caution and defensive driving. But too often, we hear from motorcyclists who are mistreated or ignored by insurance companies—including their own providers.
