Accidents happen, but that doesn’t mean you have to go into debt or change your financial lifestyle to handle them. When you’re involved in a motorcycle or bicycle accident, you will suffer injuries that require medical attention. Even if your injuries are not life-threatening or significant, they’re still going to cost you money. When someone else is at fault for the accident in which you were involved while riding your bicycle or motorcycle, you shouldn’t have to pay those medical bills from your own income or savings. Murietta Motorcycle/Bicycle Accident Lawyers understand the hardship that follows on the heels of this type of accident, and they work for you to ensure proper compensation is issued. At El Dabe Law Firm, we cannot take away your injuries or change your suffering, but we can help you bypass financial hardship due to your medical bills.
Motorcycle/Bicycle Accident Injuries
It’s not common to find the victims of motorcycle and bicycle accidents walking away without injury. These are vehicles that simply don’t offer the kind of protection a car offers, and many people suffer tragic injuries in car accidents. Riding your bike is designed to be a fun and enjoyable experience, one that doesn’t involve the stress of death or lifelong injuries. Unfortunately, many bikers are injured every year on their motorcycles and bicycles because other drivers are negligent. When this happens, injury is very common. While no injury is off-limits in this type of accident, many are more common than others.
- Head and brain injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Road rash
- Loss of limbs
- Permanent scarring
- Broken bones
Not all injuries are visible, either. Many people involved in these accidents suffer invisible injuries that don’t subside with medication or surgery. Mental anguish is not uncommon for accident survivors. Memories of the accident, fear and anxiety over ever riding on a bike or motorcycle or even in a car can become debilitating. This often makes it different for victims to work, to function properly or to live their lives as they once did.
Accidents like this often result in injuries that require ample hospital time as well as recovery. You might find yourself out of a paycheck while you recover. You might find yourself out of a job if your injuries prevent you from going back to work. This kind of financial stress is enough to incite feelings of depression and other emotional distress, and your entire life changes in a moment. If someone else’s negligence caused your accident, they might be responsible for compensating you for your injuries.
