Many people injured in collisions suffer injuries that are treatable. Their injuries heal within several weeks or months and they go one with their lives. However, other people aren’t so fortunate. Very often, motorcyclists involved in crashes suffer serious injuries, which could impact them in the following three ways:
- Lifestyle changes. When motorcyclists are injured in collisions, they often cannot return to riding their bikes for quite some time—even for a lifetime. Because riding motorcycles isn’t just a way of getting around town, injured motorcyclists often lose out on their friends, hobbies and the lifestyle they have come to enjoy.
- Lifetime disabilities. Motorcycle crashes often produce serious and debilitating injuries. Sadly, many motorcycle riders have lost limbs and suffered spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Unfortunately, these types of injuries cause emotional, mental, behavioral, and physical changes that impact victims of collisions for the rest of their lives. As a result, victims of crashes will need compensation to pay for ongoing medical care.
- Lack of income. When serious injuries occur, an injured motorcyclist will not be able to return to work for months or years. Sometimes, injuries are so severe that making a living is out of the question for an injured motorcyclist so he will need to receive full financial compensation from the party liable for his injuries to pay for a lifetime of wage losses.
