Motorcycle drivers have unique obstacles to overcome after an accident, both medically and legally. Even if you were wearing a helmet, you may be experiencing signs of concussion / head trauma. It is important for you to follow up with a neurologist after any motorcycle accident. Negative CT scans and MRIs do not mean that you do not have a head injury. A friend or loved one will likely have the best information on how you have changed after an accident.
Aside from the medical issues, there are unique issues with comparative fault for motorcycle drivers. Insurance companies, some police officers, and others may try to place fault on a motorcyclist when there was simply nothing that you could have done to avoid the crash.
St. Louis personal injury attorney Ryan Furniss has helped motorcyclists obtain substantial policy limits settlements even when the insurance company wanted to initially blame the motorcycle driver.
If you or someone close to you was injured while riding a motorcycle, Ryan can help. Contact the Furniss Law Firm for a free consultation.
