A motorcycle crash can leave you seriously injured and suffering massive losses. If you’re having trouble getting the compensation you deserve, give a Redmond motorcycle crash lawyer a call.

A motorcycle can give you a more fuel-efficient way to travel and a sense of freedom that a car simply can’t provide. Unfortunately, that freedom can come with a high price if you’re in an accident.

A motorcycle crash is especially painful, and you might have been injured by another person’s carelessness. When you’re left with the expenses for a wreck you didn’t cause, contact Craig Swapp & Associates. A Redmond motorcycle accident lawyer can review the costs of your injuries and how you could be compensated for them.

Common Motorcycle Injuries

Because you’re more likely to suffer a serious injury on a motorcycle than in a car in the event of a crash, you’ll need think hard to include all of the many injuries you’ve been treated for. As long as it’s related to the accident, it should be included in your claim, from the most life-threatening to the least consequential injuries.

Below are a few examples of traumatic injuries you might be treated for after a motorcycle accident in Redmond:  

  • Head Trauma – While helmets are mandatory for most Redmond motorcyclists, the trauma of an accident can still leave you with a concussion or other head injury. These injuries can make basic functions like memory and thinking difficult, as well as cause other symptoms like sleep changes and nausea.
  • Bone Fractures – A broken bone can be especially painful, and a hard impact can break even the hardiest bones. Depending on the location of the fracture, you may be unable to work or get around like you used to.
  • Road Rash – While not as life-threatening as other injuries, friction burns can be painful and difficult to treat. Hitting the ground at high speeds can severely scrape the skin and embed gravel and debris, which can leave you with nerve damage and large areas of scarring.  

Fair Compensation for a Redmond Motorcycle Crash

Your injuries will only be a part of your compensation. The damages you’ve suffered in a motorcycle crash can be complicated, so while you may start with medical bills and with the damage done to your motorcycle, you’ll need more than your bills paid. Non-economic damages should cover your intangible losses, like emotional trauma and physical pain.

Unfortunately, non-economic damages can be difficult to calculate alone, and even if you know the value of your motorcycle crash claim, you’ll still have to deal with the insurance companies. They’ll use harmful  and untrue “reckless biker” stereotypes against you to avoid paying the full compensation you deserve. When this happens, you may need a lawyer to protect your claim for compensation.
