Motorcycle accidents are among the most catastrophic motor vehicle accidents on the road. In many cases, a motorcyclist suffers several different types of injuries, from abrasions and broken bones to brain damage and paralysis. In the most tragic collisions, the rider can be killed.
Whether these injuries are permanent or temporary, victims and their families should remember that they may pursue a civil lawsuit. If a crash was caused by a negligent or reckless driver, there may be grounds to file a legal claim for compensation which can at least partially cover economic and non-economic damages.
Navigating the legal system alone can prove to overwhelming, especially for people who are already struggling to cope with the physical and emotional aftermath of an accident. It will be necessary to prove that another party was negligent or reckless and that those behaviors contributed to the accident that caused your injuries.
This can be much more complicated than you realize. Depending on the details of the accident, there may be reason to secure witness statements, cellphone records, expert testimony and other types of evidence to support a claim.
