Getting Full Compensation after Spinal Cord Injuries

San Francisco Bike and Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

When struck by a car, whether it was a side collision or a rear-end or head-on collision, bikers are usually thrown some distance from their motorcycle. Without the protection of a car or truck compartment around them, motorcyclists and particularly bicyclists are far more likely to suffer spinal cord injuries in an accident.

Furthermore, there is some evidence that motorcyclists are more likely to suffer neck injuries if they are wearing a helmet (though they are less likely to suffer traumatic brain injuries).

The cost of financial recovery after a spinal cord or back injury is significant. Surgery is often required. If the injured person suffered paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia), the family may need to make changes to their home. The injured person will need specialized equipment, maybe a specially equipped van. If the victim was a child, new equipment will be needed as they grow.

These expenses shouldn’t have to be born by the victim of an accident caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another.
