Schererville Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Fighting for Your Right to Fair & Just Compensation
Given that motorcycles provide less protection than automobiles, bikers are more vulnerable to suffering serious injuries in a traffic accident than those riding in closed vehicles. If you have been injured by the negligence of another motorist or other party in a motorcycle accident, you need an attorney who can help you obtain money to cover your past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more accident-related expenses.
At Tauber Law Offices, our Schererville motorcycle accident attorneys have a combined 100 years of experience representing victims of motorcycle accidents and other moving vehicle accidents. We will work with local law enforcement, medical professionals, and the courts to ensure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.
What are Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?
The causes of motorcycle accidents vary. Some accidents can be the motorcyclist’s fault, others can be from the roads themselves, and even more can be caused by other drivers. Here are some of the most common causes:
- Distracted drivers
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Mechanical problems, both with the motorcycle and other vehicles
- Inclement weather
- Poor road conditions
Motorcycle Accident Injuries & Effects
Because bikers have less protection that motorists who operate closed vehicles, they are often the ones who suffer more serious injuries after a motorcycle crash. While not always the case, we often represent bikers whose injuries are far worse than anyone else’s’ involved in the crash. This is regardless of fault.
Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Facial scarring and disfigurement
- Road rash
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spine and spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other head trauma
In addition, a severe accident can require multiple visits to the doctor, multiple surgeries, prescription medications, and physical rehabilitation, and can lead to severe financial pressure. Our aim is to seek compensation that will all of these expenses.
The suffering motorcycle accident victims endure often goes far beyond physical problems. A severe accident can also cause:
- An inability to return to one’s previous job or obtain any employment at all
- Changes in one’s personality
- Depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental issues
- Diminished cognitive abilities
- Temporary or permanent paralysis or other disabilities
- Wrongful death
All of this makes medical management an extremely important aspect of preserving your net recovery after a motorcycle accident. Hospital stays can quickly consume the award or policy limit of the party who is at fault. In addition, your health insurer or the hospital will likely seek reimbursement from your award in your motorcycle accident case. We work with hospital staff, physical therapists, and other medical professionals to preserve the maximum amount of your award for you and your family.
