There is an unfortunate misconception by some in Ohio that simply by wearing a helmet, a motorcyclist is protected from catastrophic injuries in case of an accident. However, this is not always the case. Severe head injuries are still possible while wearing a helmet. In addition to this, lack of external protection means that motorcyclists are more susceptible to road rash injuries, scarring and concussions. Motorcyclists often get thrown from their motorcycle, leading to severe head injuries.
The severity of the injuries often means expensive and lengthy hospital stays, and even therapy after release. It is also possible that the accident victim is no longer able to function normally after the accident. All of this can not only lead to a significant reduction or complete end to one's earning capacity, but also medical bills for injuries caused by someone else's negligence.
For this reason, accident victims may want to consider holding the negligent driver who caused the motorcycle accident accountable for their actions. Lawyers at our firm have more than 50 years of experience in pursuing personal injury claims for Ohio victims. We understand that medical bills are only part of the claim. We examine various factors and consider all possibilities when it comes to financial recovery for our victims.
The trauma of an accident can remain with victims for a long time, even after one's physical injuries have healed. But by working with victims, we try to help them get the compensation they deserve so their remaining life can be as fulfilling as possible. For more on motorcycle accidents, visit our web page.
