Thousands of Southern California residents ride motorcycles rather than driving cars. There are many reasons why they do so, but, whatever the reason, motorcyclists should be aware that other drivers may be the greatest danger they face on the road. You can be a great motorcycle rider, with years of experience, and still face the danger of a driver who isn’t paying attention. Motorcycles accidents almost always end with an injury – or worse – for the motorcyclist, while the driver of the motor vehicle may walk away unharmed.
In the aftermath of a motorcycle accident that causes an injury, it is important for victims to understand the full nature of their injury. For some, they may feel lucky if they come out of the incident with only broken bones. Others will face far more serious injuries, such as brain or spinal cord injuries. And, of course, some motorcycle accidents result in the death of the rider.
Injured victims will be focused on their health and recovery, and rightfully so. But, if the injured victims decide to pursue financial compensation in a lawsuit, they will need to have the appropriate documentation about their injuries and the medical treatment they received. Proving damages is a crucial part of any personal injury lawsuit.
