Now that the weather has improved in the Cincinnati area, motorcycles are back on the road. Many Cincinnati area residents have a motorcycle that they enjoy riding to work or for pleasure. Most of the time motorcyclists are able to safely share the road with other drivers but, occasionally, a serious motorcycle accident occurs.
A tragic motorcycle accident recently occurred in Hamilton. A motorcyclist was seriously injured after being involved in an accident with a car. The motorcyclist was traveling west on Fairgrove when a car turned off Campbell onto Fairgrove. The car struck the motorcycle and the motorcyclist suffered life-threatening injuries. He was initially brought to Fort Hamilton Hospital but was later flown to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center because of the severity of his injuries. The accident is under investigation.
No one expects their loved one to be in a serious motorcycle accident. Unfortunately, when a motorcycle accident occurs, there are often severe injuries. Because of the lack of protection a motorcycle offers its riders, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis and other catastrophic injuries are common. An attorney who specializes in personal injury can help a family facing this reality. They will work nonstop to recover compensation for their client for their medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
A motorcycle accident can turn a family’s life upside down. The victim is a valued family member and may also contribute income to the family. There may now be thousands of dollars of unexpected medical expenses, along with months or even years of rehabilitation. A family has the legal right to hold the negligent party responsible for their mistake.
