Filing a cause of action after a motorcycle accident

It is not uncommon for individuals to drive or ride on a motorcycle at least once in their life. While safety measures and traffic safety rules have been implemented to reduce incidents involving motorcycles, collisions unfortunately do occur. Our law firm understands that when residents in West Virginia are unexpectedly involved in a motorcycle crash, their lives could be greatly impacted by the incident on a temporary and even permanent basis.

When a motorcycle accident occurs, serious injuries may ensue. These types of collisions cause some of the worst types of automobile accident injuries. Even when a motorcyclist wears a helmet, this form of protection cannot guard a biker or a passenger from severe injuries such as bone fractures, head trauma, neck injuries, brain injuries, road rash, back injuries and even fatal injuries.

Motorcycles are small motor vehicles and the accidents in which they are involved are frequently caused by other motorists failing to see them or accommodating them on the roadways. If another driver is at fault in a motorcycle crash, they could be liable for the resulting injuries and damages caused by the crash. The injured party could file a cause of action such as a personal injury claim. This step could help them recover compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation, permanent disabilities, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Furthermore, if a loved one is killed in a motorcycle accident by a negligent driver, loved ones could file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for the losses and damages incurred by the incident. Following a motorcycle crash, it is important that those involved understand their rights. Our law firm's motorcycle accident overview could be a great starting point. This information can help clarify the situation for victims and their loved ones. Moreover, it could help them take timely and appropriate action that could help offset the financial hardships caused by the accident.
