Need an Injury Attorney for a Vermont Motorcycle Accident?
Motorcycle accidents are inevitable. From accidents that lead to minor injuries to accidents that lead to catastrophic injuries, motorcyclists are at a greater risk than drivers in vehicles. Motorcyclists are exposed to many dangers because there is significantly less protection for them on the roads. During Vermont’s warm season, drivers are likely to take advantage of the weather. Whether motorcyclists choose to ride to work, take a leisurely stroll, or venture on a long trip, riders could face the harsh reality that not everyone on the road shares the same level of respect of other drivers. NeedanInjuryVermont can help you if you have been injured in a motorcycle accident to receive legal analysis on your case.
Common Reasons for Motorcycle Accidents Caused by Negligent Behavior
Every year, more and more distracted drivers are on the Vermont roads and riders tend to pay the price. Here are some common reasons why motorcyclists are involved in accidents:
- Using GPS
- Talking or using a cellphone
- Cutting a motorcyclist off when changing lanes or making a turn
- Failing to pay attention to motorcyclists
- Following too closely to another vehicle
- Ignoring traffic conditions
The Consequences of Motorcycle Accidents
In 2017, there were 13 motorcycle fatalities. While 12 out of the 13 fatalities were wearing helmets, every motorcycle rider most likely knows that when they ride their bike, they are at greater risk of injury than drivers or passengers in other vehicles if involved in an accident.
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, your injuries may be costing you several hundred or thousands of dollars. Whether you suffer a traumatic brain injury because you were thrown from your bike, whether you suffer spine, back, and head injuries, or maybe scratches and burns. You could see long-term consequences putting you at a financial strain. Depending on the severity of the accident, victims may face extensive injuries and subsequent recovery time. Or maybe you were fortunate that your physical injuries were not severe, the accident may have caused psychological harm and has remained a constant struggle in your life.
Regardless of how you are affected by your motorcycle accident, you may wonder what your options are in your time of need. You may need compensation for your medical bills and lost income, rehabilitation for long-term injuries, and therapy for your psychological stress. Experiencing any of these consequences could make an enormous impact on your wellbeing and the damages could be infinite.
