Motorcyclists are often hard for the drivers of other vehicles to see, thereby increasing their risk of being involved in an accident. When a motorcyclist is hit, the injuries are likely to be catastrophic. For injured motorcyclists in Denver, your best bet of recovering the damages to which you are entitled is to work with an experienced Denver motorcycle lawyer. The team at Robinson & Henry, P.C. has the experience your case deserves.
Motorcycle Accidents and Severe Injuries – Why You Need a Lawyer
Even in motorcycle accidents that do not occur at high speeds or on particularly busy roads, the motorcyclist may still sustain serious injuries. The risk of serious injury is higher, of course, if the accident occurs on a highly trafficked road, if the vehicles involved are traveling at high speeds, or if the motorcyclist is not wearing proper gear, such as a helmet and riding boots.
Some of the most common injuries include:
- Head, scalp, and traumatic brain injuries;
- Facial injuries;
- Broken bones;
- Internal injuries;
- Road burn/road rash;
- Spinal cord injuries; and
- Bruises and lacerations.
These injuries can be very expensive to remedy; a person will likely need emergency – and perhaps even long-term – medical care. Their injuries may prevent them from returning to work immediately, or for weeks or years. The loss of income combined with high medical bills can be too much to handle financially. Because the damages incurred in a motorcycle accident are great, it is within your best interest to work with an attorney who will advocate for you.
What Your Lawyer Will Do for You
The job of your lawyer is to investigate what happened, find out who should be held liable, assist you in filing your claim, gather evidence to support your claim, assess your damages, negotiate for a settlement amount, and take your case to court if a settlement offer cannot be reached.
At Robinson & Henry, P.C., we understand the emotional and financial strain your family is under. That’s why we will never ask you to pay us out of your pocket; any compensation that we receive will come directly from your settlement amount, and you will never be responsible for any upfront fees.
