It is common for motorcyclists to suffer catastrophic injuries in a crash. The lack of outer protection for them makes a rider susceptible to severe injuries. A motorcyclist does not need to even be traveling at a high speed for a crash to be devastating. If an insurance company tries to say that your injuries must be exaggerated because you were in a low-speed crash, then we will be ready to challenge them head-on.
Motorcycle accident claims often involve the following injuries and more:
It is unlawful to operate a motorcycle in Louisiana without wearing a helmet. However, a citation should be the least of your worries when you don’t have your helmet on. As you know, not wearing a helmet increases your risk of suffering a head injury in a wreck. But did you know that it can damage your chances of securing fair compensation from the driver who hits you?
The driver’s insurance company will try to argue that you are liable for your injuries if you weren’t wearing your helmet when the crash happened. To some extent, they might be right, so it will be more difficult to keep your liability down. The higher your liability in a case, the less money you can receive through compensation later.
The bottom line: Always wear a motorcycle helmet.
