Motorcycle Accidents – Lasting Effects
Motorcycle accidents and the damages done can range widely depending on the severity of the accident. In minor motorcycle accidents a rider can be hospitalized and need physical therapy to return to doing normal daily activities. More traumatic motorcycle accidents such as big rig trucking accidents on common local Rancho freeways like the 210, 10 and 15 can result in serious and lifelong debilitation including lose of limbs, lasting medical conditions including spinal cord injuries and brain damage as well as even loss of life.
In those serious situations a motorcycle rider who was a victim of an accident in or around Rancho Cucamonga may have light at the end of the tunnel in terms of regaining some mobility and physical function to a certain degree, but the financial hardship placed on victims of motorcycle accidents is far reaching and arguably more stressful than the physical damages. A motorcycle victim with serious medical traumas may be faced with not being able to work and provide for their family and in the most serious of cases may be looking at a lifetime of around the clock medical and care giving expenses. Although Rancho Cucamonga does have top rated medical centers, more effected victims may also be forced to foot the bill for specialty centers and physicians a long way away in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
Recovering Damages after a motorcycle accident
Victims of motorcycle accidents are often injured more severely than others involved in the accident. Passengers in cars, trucks and commercial driving equipment are restrained and protected by countless safety features while a motorcycle rider merely has a helmet tasked with keeping them safe. Compensation for damages can assist with ongoing medical costs, loss of current and future wages and even other types of damages, but in many motorcycle cases the physical loss will never be replaced or remedied. Rancho Cucamonga is currently exploding with new developments for residence and business and this not only brings in new drivers it is increasing the amount of construction and large equipment which posses an even deadlier risk to motorcycle riders.
The problem in many motorcycle accidents is victims relying on the insurance companies to provide a fair settlement. Despite the average income in Rancho Cucamonga being moderately high, and victims being able to afford more comprehensive insurances, there is always a cap on what insurances will willingly provide. The insurance company’s role is not to provide victims with the financial means they need, but rather settle for the least amount possible. An experienced injury attorney familiar with motorcycle accidents and the dynamics of the local roadways can help to fight for a recovery to prepare the victim and their family for the financial hardships that lay ahead.
