MOTORCYCLE INJURY COMPENSATION
If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, the injuries are undoubtedly quite severe. A motorcycle offers little protection from an impact with a car or truck, and as a result, injuries often require lengthy hospital stays. Motorcycle accident injuries can include the following:
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries
Most of these injuries will require extensive rehabilitation and ongoing assistance to relearn how to perform simple tasks. As a result, victims of motorcycle accidents are often entitled not only to receive compensation relating to their hospital stay, but also rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, and future earnings. Additionally, victims of motorcycle accidents can also receive emotional damages, such as pain and suffering or mental anguish.
