Spine injuries are some of the most common injuries suffered in motorcycle crashes. Damage to your vertebrae and spinal cord can easily result in chronic pain, paralysis, and immense financial and emotional damages.
A Sacramento motorcycle accident spine injury lawyer from Crowell Law Offices can help you hold the at-fault party accountable. We’ll represent you and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve for your back injury.
Types of Spinal Injuries
The severity of your spine injury will impact what your claim is worth. A back injury that results in a lifelong disability will require substantially more compensation than one that can be recovered from in time. Some of the more common spinal injuries suffered in motorbike wrecks are listed below:
In some cases, arthritis can develop after a spinal injury has been treated. This can lead to a loss of mobility along with discomfort or pain, further creating the need for monetary restitution. Factoring in future losses such as this is just as important as assessing all of your current damages.
Medical Care for a Motorcycle Crash Back Injury
It is critical to receive the medical attention you need for your spine injury. Any care prescribed by your doctor should be accounted for in your settlement:
Medication may also be required to help ease the pain. Mobility equipment such as canes, walkers, and wheelchairs may be required if your mobility has been restricted.
Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit for a Motorcycle Wreck
Before filing a personal injury lawsuit, we must investigate the crash and identify the negligent party. To receive the most compensation possible, it will be necessary to fully demonstrate how they were at fault for causing your motorcycle crash.
Once your lawsuit is filed, we will continue to gather evidence that can be used in both negotiations and court to make a strong case for why you deserve compensation. There will be an opportunity to negotiate with the other party, and if a fair settlement offer is made, your case could settle outside of the courtroom.
Insurance Companies and the Bias Against Motorcyclists
There is an unfortunate and unfair bias against motorcycle riders that often extends to the courtroom. Knowing this, the insurance company or opposing attorney might try to portray the accident as your fault—even if it wasn’t.
Our job is to protect your rights during the legal process, ensure that you are treated fairly, and prevent these stereotypes from being used against you. It’s best to have all communication with the other party’s insurance company go through our office. Otherwise, they could use what you say against you.
