Hit by debris from someone else’s motorcycle wreck? You have a right to file a claim

On Behalf of | Jun 11, 2020 | Uncategorized |

You were happy that the weather cleared up and was nice enough out for you to go for a motorcycle ride. You and a group of friends headed out together hoping to see a few nice areas of the city and to get in some time on your bikes. 

Unfortunately, drivers in your area don’t always watch carefully before they pull out into traffic. As you and your group approached an intersection, a driver on your right made a left turn in front of you. You slowed down in time, but your friend, riding in front of you, couldn’t stop. When their motorcycle was hit, debris was thrown back toward your group. You couldn’t avoid it, and you ended up crashing as well.

You and several of your friends now have serious injuries that require care. You have a head injury and serious road rash along with some broken ribs. It will be a long recovery. 

After a crash, you may want to look into seeking compensation for what you’ve been through. Some of the compensation that you may want to seek after a motorcycle crash includes:

  • Punitive damages
  • Mental health care
  • Lost wages (past and future)
  • Complete and ongoing medical care

Your attorney would be happy to talk to you about how much compensation to expect based on the specific factors that play a role in your case.
