What Happens In This Case
This type of case is one commonly seen by personal injury lawyers. Automobile drivers often do not notice the presence of motorcyclists on the road. In particular, many cars collide with un-noticed motorcycles while making left turns. Most accidents involving a motorcyclist are the fault of the other party. Our prayers and condolences go out to the injured officer.
A lawyer can help injured motorcyclists recover damages from negligent drivers and insurance companies. If the other driver is responsible for the accident, a lawyer can help an injured motorcyclist recover financial compensation for current and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and damages to the motorcycle.
