To those that survive motorcycle accidents, years of trauma can ensue. It is important for survivors to have access to the treatment and care they need after a motorcycle accident – hence why appropriate compensation is critical.
"Getting adequate compensation is of ultimate importance,” said Shaked. "Often times, our clients’ injuries last well after the physical scars have healed – psychological trauma can take years to address, which is why we fight for the largest financial settlement possible."
Motorcycle Accidents can take many forms, according to NHTSA, the most common types of motorcycle injuries are as follows, in order of those most frequently seen in hospitals:
- Lower-extremity Injuries
- Upper-extremity Injuries
- Traumatic Head Injuries
- Chest Injuries
- Abdominal Injuries.
Although the NHTSA reports that lower-extremity injuries, such as broken legs, ankles, and/or muscular tears, are the most common, however head, chest, and abdominal injuries are the most severe.
Many motorcycle enthusiasts recommend riders take the following precautions in order to avoid serious or fatal injury. These include wearing:
- an approved motorcycle helmet
- a jacket and pants made of high-quality, durable material
- goggles and a face shield
- non-slip gloves
- durable boots to protect your ankles and lower extremities.
Although Florida does not have a mandatory helmet law if you meet certain qualifications, taking additional precautions by investing in and wearing quality gear can not only reduce the likelihood of serious injury, it can reduce your exposure to potential liability.
Motorcycle injuries are often severe and can happen suddenly. If you or a loved one is an avid Florida motorcyclist, take the time to contact a qualified motorcycle accident attorney who can help you make important legal decisions that could save your life, and pay for the medical costs.
