At the Law Offices of John Day, our award-winning lawyers have decades of experience in helping the victims of motorcycle accidents. As former motorcycle riders ourselves (we still feel the itch when the weather turns warm), we understand the vulnerability of motorcycle riders. There is no airbag. There is no seat belt. There is no frame and occupant protection system to help manage the energy of a crash. So if another driver is careless, the results can be devastating. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and broken bones are just some of the injuries that can result from a motorcycle accident.
Not surprisingly, the costs associated with these types of injuries can be astronomical. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published the results of two studies which show the medical costs associated with motorcycle crashes is more than 10 times the cost of a car accident. Of course, this figure does not account for fatalities, pain and suffering, disfigurement, etc. And it certainly does not account for all the intangible losses like a life that has been forever changed.Free Consultation and No Fee Unless We Win
