    Why motorcycle accidents happen at intersections

    Motorcycle accidents at intersections are almost always attributed to driver negligence. The primary factors resulting in motorcycle accident at an intersection include:

    How motorcycle accident can affect the lives of victims

    Because motorcyclists have very little protection in a crash, they can suffer very serious injuries. Common motorcycle accident injuries include broken bones, head injuries, back injuries, biker’s arm, and road rash. In some cases, injured motorcyclists need amputation or suffer paralysis due to injuries to the back, neck, or spine.

    Medical expenses for diagnosing and treating injuries can add up quickly and soon become overwhelming. Motorcyclists may need imaging tests, lab tests, surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, home health care and multiple follow-up appointments with doctors. Recovery from their injuries may take months or years. In some cases, injured victims are left with a permanent disability.

    Dealing with the legal process and insurance company can be complicated

    If you were injured in a Jacksonville motorcycle accident caused by a negligent driver, you deserve financial compensation. But the legal process can be complicated.

    Passenger vehicle drivers are always expected to watch out for motorcycles, especially at intersections. But even if there is no doubt that the driver was at fault for causing your accident, dealing with his or her insurance company can be exhausting. They may try to pin the blame on you or downplay the extent of your injuries. They may even offer you a "low-ball" settlement in hopes that your claim will go away. But you should never succumb to their false generosity. Such a settlement is rarely enough to cover the cost of medical bills, loss of wages and suffering.

    Insurance companies have lawyers looking out for their best interests. You need a lawyer who will fight for what’s best for you.
