In the blink of an eye, your life can change. One moment you are riding your motorcycle down the highway; the next you are waking up on the asphalt, bleeding and hurting.
For many bikers, the harsh reality of this situation comes as a shock. A motorcycle crash, even a minor one, is emotionally jarring. Add to that the physical damage and you can see how unsettling an accident can be.
Why Contact a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?
Sometimes injuries from a motorcycle crash are so severe that surgery is required. No one wants to undergo a surgical procedure, but in some cases it is necessary in order to treat broken bones or internal injuries. Undergoing surgery often means an extended hospital stay and follow-up visits. It also involves large medical bills, usually extending well beyond $10,000.
Many motorcycle accident victims who undergo surgery will require physical therapy to fully recover from their injuries. Physical therapy is both costly and time consuming. That means additional time away from work and mounting medical costs.
When a motorcycle rider is hurt in a crash, even if they may be partially at fault, the biker needs to seek out quality legal representation as soon as possible. The Law Firm of Kass & Moses motorcycle injury attorneys will fight for your rights, and for fair and just compensation.
Often, just days after the crash the insurance adjuster will start to call. They will ask you questions and inquire as to how you are getting along. You may think they are being considerate, and may even be inclined to have a nice chat with them. But remember, they will keep track of everything you say.
The insurance company is not your friend. They are only looking out for their own bottom line. Instead of getting played by the insurance company, call Kass & Moses serious motorcycle injury attorneys. We will deal with the insurance adjusters so that you do not have to.
As you begin to recover from surgery, you may feel that the worst is behind you. Physically, perhaps that is true. But for many inured bikers, the real shock comes when they begin to face their own mounting medical bills. Medical insurance is helpful, but you could still be left dealing with thousands of dollars due for deductibles and copayments. Quite frankly, you need a miracle.
We know what it is like to feel alone and devastated by the financial implications of your crash. After the pain of surgery, the therapy visits, and the lost wages, to face mounting medical bills just seems like too much to bear. But do not feel that you have to go it alone.
We have over 25 years of experience helping bikers who have been hurt in crashes. We know how insurance companies work and we understand their game. Because we understand how they operate, we know how to maximize your compensation.
How Common Are Severe Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents?
Severe injuries, such as those requiring surgery, are quite common in motorcycle accidents. Approximately 80 percent of motorcycle crashes result in moderate to severe injuries. The number increases when the crashes involve other motor vehicles. Common motorcycle accident injuries include fracture, soft tissue injuries, head and neck injuries, and internal bleeding.
Some fractures require surgery in order to stabilize the bones to allow them to heal. Severe head trauma can require surgery to allow swelling to occur while minimizing damage to the brain. More severe injuries of the internal organs require immediate surgery. Injuries to the joints, like knee injuries can also result in surgery.
Getting immediate medical attention after a motorcycle accident is critical. It can be easy to overlook injuries, even serious injuries, when you are in shock from a motorcycle crash. Traumatic brain injuries can also make it difficult to make good decisions and may make you feel you do not need medical care. Your best bet is to be thoroughly checked out by a physician if you are involved in a motorcycle accident.
