Advocating For Compensation For Motorcycle Accident Victims
Most motorcycle injuries involve a collision with a car or other motor vehicle. Motorcyclists are aware that often, people driving cars do not look for motorcycles and do not notice them when they are there. Accidents can result from drivers making illegal or unsafe turns, opening car doors or simply colliding with motorcyclists because of distracted driving.
At Joseph Kelly Levasseur, Esquire, I have helped accident victims get compensation for their injuries for more than 20 years. I am Joseph Kelly Levasseur, and I have in-depth knowledge about injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents and the forensics involved in examining accident scenes. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a motorcycle accident, I can help you get compensation for your injuries, losses and expenses.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Even with the latest in protective helmets and other gear, a motorcycle is no match for a car or truck. Injuries to the motorcyclist are often traumatic, especially if riders are thrown from the bikes. Common injuries associated with motorcycle accidents include:
- Brain Injuries
- Head and neck injuries
- Biker’s arm
- Leg, knee and foot injuries
- Injuries leading to amputation
Most injuries result in broken bones and muscle and tendon damage. These injuries usually lead to large medical expenses and lost time at work. This may include long-term physical therapy and other ongoing expenses. I make sure that settlements on motorcycle accident claims cover not only existing expenses but future expenses as well.
