Motorcycle operators and riders often find themselves to be victims of negligent, careless or reckless vehicle drivers who make sudden lane changes, who power through intersections or who simply are unable to see the motorcycle until it is too late.
Typical accidents when a motorcycle is involved is failure of the motorist to yield right of way. The driver either doesn't see the motorcycle or has the mistaken impression that the motorcyclist can react quickly enough to avoid collision. The motorcycle may be struck by a vehicle who has ignored a stop sign or a red light and again, doesn't see the motorcycle until it is too late to avoid hitting it. Failure to yield the right-of-way to a motorcycle can be due to not seeing the motorcycle or to many other factors including road rage or simple negligence.
The operator of the at-fault vehicle may deliberately or accidentally force the motorcycle off the road. The motorcycle is not so forgiving of sharp edges to pavements or narrow shoulders as an automobile or truck would be so an accident can ensue when loose gravel is encountered on the edge of a road. Forcing the motorcycle off the road may be the result of an unwise pass of another vehicle that is following too close to a motorcycle. The passing car realizes too late that there is a motorcycle in the lane ahead of the passed car.
A legal firm that represents clients involved in motorcycle accidents must be capable of reconstructing such accidents, often utilizing such technological assists as computer simulation, and collecting testimony from witness who observed the details of the accident. This practice is crucial in successfully establishing fault and thereby recovering damages for the victim of the accident.
Most injuries resulting from accidents in which there is a motorcycle involved tend to be serious and most injuries involve the head, neck and back. Victims who have lived through a motorcycle accident often will have effects from those injuries that last throughout their entire lifetime. There will be some disabilities, special needs and medical care required in many instances. Attorneys who represent such clients need to be conversant with financial experts as well as medical professionals in order to establish the impact financially of an injury or combination of injuries. The attorney must further be able to present the specifics of the injuries and needs in order to convince a judge or jury of the compensation required to care for the victim over long term.
Fair treatment for the established injuries and needs following a motorcycle accident is something that can be done by the legal expert selected in the aftermath of the accident. More importantly, the need to look at victims of motorcycle accidents not as statistics or simply cases either legally or medically, but as human beings with drastically different life expectations as a result of the accident. Jurors are made to understand the expensive care and medical treatment that may result from the effects of the accident.
The effects of the negligence of another driver can't be undone, not even by fair and adequate financial remuneration, but the economic road can be made a little smoother for the innocent victim of a motorcycle accident. Determining the specific costs such as paying for emergency room treatment and the x-ray imaging that is required are relatively simple. Assigning a value to some of the other impacts of the motorcycle accident with injuries is far less simple but selecting a skilled and knowledgeable attorney who specializes in this type of accident will take some of the burden off the victim and family members.
