Most motorcyclists in Reno are well aware of the certain risks associated with operating a motorcycle. While many motorcyclists are safe and responsible drivers, some drivers in other motor vehicles are not. When an irresponsible driver accidentally comes into contact with a motorcyclist, the results can be catastrophic.
Injuries after being struck on a motorcycle have many possibilities. One potential outcome is permanent disability. These kinds of injuries can make walking, lifting or even standing for long periods of time impossible due to the pain or inability of a body part to function like it once did. In addition, injuries like this can result not only in immense medical expenses, but can also leave the victim unable to work and earn a living.
If the person that struck the motorcyclist is at fault, they and their insurance company can be held responsible for the financial issues surrounding this type of life-long injury and medical condition.
