Caring Legal Help After Automobile and Motorcycle Accidents
An accident of any kind can be a devastating blow to a family. However, auto accidents and motorcycle accidents can be even more so as a result of the likelihood of critical and even life threatening injuries.
If you or a loved one have been the victim of an automobile or a motorcycle accident, it is important that you reach out for medical and legal help as soon as possible.
In 2013 alone, the state of Colorado saw 431 fatal car crashes, and many more collisions that resulted in both minor and serious injuries.
The most commonly seen injuries that occur as a result of a car accident include head and brain injuries, neck and spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and death. Accidents that involve large commercial trucks can be even more devastating, simply as a result of the sheer weight, size, and force of the truck.
Accidents that involve drunk drivers also tend to result in fatalities more often than accidents that do not involve alcohol.
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can be much more dangerous than a car accident in terms of injuries and fatalities.
Motorcyclists are much more vulnerable in an accident than a car driver or passenger, because there is no protective metal cage around them.
Helmets do reduce the risk of death in the event of an accident significantly, however, the injuries seen in motorcycle accidents are often critical and life threatening whether a helmet is worn or not.
Causes of Automobile and Motorcycle Accidents
Many people believe that a car accident or motorcycle accident is just that – an “accident.” However, there is almost always one or more contributing factors to an accident, and many times, the accident could have been prevented were it not for the negligence or carelessness of someone else.
The most commonly seen causes of both automobile and motorcycle include:
Driving under the influence of alcohol, either by the victim(s) or drivers of other vehicles
Texting and driving, or otherwise driving while distracted
Speeding and other traffic law violations
Tire defects or other defects in the automobile or motorcycle
Defects in the roadway, including poorly kept roadways and traffic signals
It can be difficult to determine what caused a car or motorcycle accident, however, with the help of an experienced Colorado car accident lawyer, you can pinpoint the source(s) of the collision and learn more about how they may be able to be held legally responsible for the accident.
Bringing Forward an Auto or Motorcycle Accident Claim
If you or a loved one were injured in an automobile or motorcycle accident, the first thing you must do is get medical treatment immediately, even if your injuries do not seem severe at the time.
The next step is to contact a seasoned injury attorney in your area to learn more about obtaining financial compensation for the damages you’ve incurred as a result of the accident.
The costs of an accident can be extremely high, totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars or even more. Medical expenses, lost wages, vehicle damage, and funeral expenses in the case of a fatality can easily put a family under significant financial stress.
By bringing forward an auto or motorcycle accident claim after a collision, you may be able to obtain the maximum amount of financial restitution available in your case.
