Motorcycles don’t have bumpers, steel bodies and frames, crumple zones, air bags or seat belts. In the event of a crash, riders are far more likely to be severely injured than drivers or occupants of motor vehicles. Even if a motorcyclist’s body doesn’t take a blow from a car in a crash, his or her body is still going to impact with the road, a fixed object, another vehicle or all three of them. Common injuries include the following:
- Coma or paralysis.
- Traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries.
- Damage to vital organs.
- Severe multiple fractures including hips and legs.
- Surgical or traumatic amputations.
- Damage to the structure of the spine.
Any of these injuries will result in overwhelming medical bills. One or more of them might also result in permanent disability that can affect your earning capacity for the rest of your life. Given those facts, if you were the motorcyclist victim of a careless and negligent driver in or around Denver, you’ll want to arrange for a free consultation and case evaluation with the Denver injury lawyers at McDermott Law.
Any experienced and safety-conscious motorcyclist knows that the general public carries a bias against motorcyclists. What comes to issue is the fact that juries consist of members of the general public, so if an injury claim comes to a trial, you’ll be asking for a damages award from a jury that is already biased against you. The Denver injury lawyers at McDermott Law confront bias head-on to eliminate it as soon as we’re retained on a motorcyclist’s behalf.
Like anybody else, motorcyclists who are the victims of the negligence of somebody else should have the opportunity to full and fair compensation. Contact us right away after being seriously injured in any motorcycle crash.
