Motorcyclists have every right to safety on the road as do any other passenger vehicle drivers. Sadly, motorcyclists are often horribly injured when they are involved in car accidents with other motor vehicles and even commercial trucks. These injuries are often no fault of the motorcyclist, yet they suffer the brunt of the actual injuries. Injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident can absolutely be catastrophic.
The ways that motorcyclists are left largely unprotected in instances of collisions with motor vehicles puts them at severe risk of bodily injury. However, this doesn't mean that the liability should fall on the injured motorcyclist. Rather, there could be a person or party at fault for motorcycle accident injury and thus the liability would fall on them. Seeking damages would occur in what's known as a personal injury suit.
At Killackey Law Offices APC, we take the motorcycle injuries of our clients seriously. We know how draining, both financially and emotionally, this type of event can be on the injured and their family. Seeking out the best possible outcome after such an untimely and unexpected life event is important. Settling for anything less could mean unnecessary liability falls on the injured or loved one's shoulders.
Motorcycle accidents are nothing to brush off. The lasting impact of one could affect the injured negatively for a long time, if not the rest of their life. There is no facet of a person's life that goes unaffected when their health suffers. Receiving damages could be the first way to put a person's life back together after motorcycle accident injury.
