Motorcycle riders are at a constant state of risk for these types of accidents. Motorcycles provide very little protection for a rider in the event of an accident and can contribute to additional injuries, should the cycle slide on to the rider.
Many motorcycle accidents prove fatal to the rider, and even if he escapes with comparatively minor injuries, he may still be facing a long road to recovery. He may need multiple surgeries to repair his damaged leg and head injuries are always dangerous. Motorcycle and car crashes always pose the risk of traumatic brain injuries.
Anytime you have been in an accident with injuries, you should speak with a personal injury attorney, to ensure your rights are protected and you obtain adequate compensation to cover your medical expenses.
