Motorcycle riders have to always be on the alert for possible hazards. As we discussed last week, safety is always a top concern for bikers, and this includes having to watch out for motorists who might not be watching out for them. Most motorcycle enthusiasts already know how devastating an accident can be, but many motorists might not stop to think about the severe injuries that might occur if they ram into a motorcycle.
For the motorcyclists who are involved in an accident, the severity of their injuries depends on the factors of the accident. Still, even seemingly minor accidents might lead to serious injuries. For example, a motorcyclist who is struck from behind could be knocked off the motorcycle. That might lead to head, arm, shoulder or hip injuries, depending on how they land.
When a motorcyclist is thrown off of a motorcycle, the helmet will provide some protections to the head. Since Tennessee law requires that all riders have a helmet, most motorcyclists can count on that protective boost. Still, other injuries, such as spinal cord injuries or broken bones, are also possible. These can all stop you from riding until you are healed, and they can sometimes stop you from going to work.
We know that motorcyclists who are involved in accidents are worried about healing so they can get back on the road. If you have medical bills and other damages from the accident, you might not be able to fully enjoy your rides once you are healed. We can help you to seek compensation for your injuries so that the financial burden on you might be lifted.
