Do you own a motorcycle? If you do, we hope that you never need an Akron motorcycle accident attorney. We know that you take the steps necessary to operate safely when you are out on the road, but there is no way to predict the actions of other drivers around you.
At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we are here to help if you or a loved one are injured in a motorcycle crash caused by someone else’s negligence. Let us work to secure the compensation you need for all of your crash-related expenses.
Whether you are a motorcycle rider or not, it is easy to understand why motorcycle crashes often cause severe injuries. Even when a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet, they are still exposed to much more trauma in the event of a crash than those in a regular passenger vehicle. In most cases, a motorcyclist is going to suffer injuries from two impacts – one with a vehicle and one with the ground.
It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries as a result of motorcycle crashes:
Consider that the medical cost for some of those injuries can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars (first-year costs for a spinal cord injury can reach over $1.1 million dollars). In many cases, a crash victim needs to undergo extensive rehabilitation and follow-up procedures. This can mean time away from work and their income.
For the latest reporting year in Ohio, there were 159 motorcycle crash deaths. Thousands more were injured. In fact, nearly every motorcycle crash results in some kind of injury.
In many cases, we find that these incidents happen due to another person’s negligent driving behavior and are not caused by the motorcyclist. All too often, drivers ignore motorcyclists and do not give them enough space on the roadway. We also know that alcohol-impaired drivers and those who drive while distracted by their cell phones pose a significant risk to motorcyclists.
If a motorcyclist is injured due to the negligence of another driver, they need to be able to secure compensation.
You do not have to be at the mercy of insurance companies in the aftermath of a motorcycle crash. If you or a loved one have been injured because of another person’s negligence or careless behavior, the team at Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers will be by your side. Let us get to work investigating what happened so we can secure the compensation you deserve. This can include:
