There are a number of common things shared by most accidents on the road. For instance, crashes most of the time involve two vehicles colliding, there is an at-fault party, and injuries are often involved. However, motorcycle accidents are unique from other types of accidents in one significant way: protection.
In every other type of vehicle crash, the vehicles offer some amount of protection. From airbags to roll guards, most cars and trucks are designed with safety systems in place to give the occupants of the vehicle the best chance of survival in the event of a crash. A motorcycle provides zero protection for the rider. In fact, the only protection a motorcyclist has in the event of an accident is what he or she is wearing. Because of that lack of protection, motorcycle accidents can lead to considerable injuries.
It’s not uncommon for a motorcycle crash to put someone out of commission for months, if not years. We’ve had clients that may never go back to work due to the extent of their injuries. Thankfully, they called us instead of trying to deal with the insurance company alone. We worked on their behalf to protect their rights and secure the maximum settlement they were entitled to.
Motorcycle accidents can be more devastating than any other type of motor vehicle accident. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle wreck, don’t go it alone. Call the Nashville motorcycle accident attorneys at Ponce Law for a free consultation today.
