Injuries from Motorcycle Crashes
Injuries from motorcycle crashes in Chicago and beyond are often severe. This is mainly because bikers ride without the benefit of a steel frame surrounding them. When crashes occur, bikers are often thrown from their motorcycles, landing hard on the pavement. These abrupt landings often result in head injuries, fractures, and severe road rash. Most motorcycle crashes result in a trip to the emergency room. As we all know, emergency room visits are incredibly expensive. Just having a professional medical assessment can cost over a thousand dollars, and that is before you factor in expensive imaging tests. Xrays, ultrasounds, and MRIs can cost thousands of dollars each.
As any motorcycle rider who has been in a crash can attest, pain after the incident can be excruciating. Although painkillers can help ease the pain initially, you can still have weeks, months, or even years of discomfort ahead. For some, the pain will last a lifetime. In addition to the pain, you may experience some degree of disability. You may not be able to move your body as easily before, or you may experience limitations when it comes to twisting your midsection or stretching your arm.
As you can see, the injuries from motorcycle crashes can cause life-long affects and should not be overlooked. It is always important to seek medical attention immediately after a crash. Even though it can be costly, it is often covered fully by insurance in your settlement. In addition, we can help you recover financially for the pain and suffering and ongoing physical disability you may experience.
It's just not right for insurance companies to offer pennies for your motorcycle accident settlement, but many do. It can be downright insulting to be offered a settlement that barely covers your medical bills and does not address the pain you have experienced, your time away from work, or the damage that has been done to your overall health. That is why, as experienced Chicago motorcycle accident attorneys, we pride ourselves in diligently fighting for the rights of injured bikers.
We ride, too! We know how important it is to regain your health both for your own wellbeing and also to get you up and riding again. We will do everything in our power to set your finances back in order, and get you just compensation for your injuries.
