Motorcycle riders have all of the same rights and responsibilities of any other vehicle on Ohio’s roads. It is the responsibility of other motorists to see motorcycles and to give them the same respect that would be given to a car or truck. Injuries suffered by motorcyclists are often very severe due to the lack of protection provided by a motorcycle as compared to a car.
Motorcycle accident injuries can range from road rash up to serious broken bones, closed head and spinal cord injuries and even death. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you should discuss your case with a personal injury attorney. Even if you think your injuries are not severe, you should make sure they are properly documented because some injuries may not become fully apparent for several days or even weeks. Having an experienced attorney by your side can help to ensure that your interests are protected from the start.
At Novins, York & Jacobus, we have experience handling all types of motorcycle accident cases. In addition to the monetary damages you may be entitled to seek, we also pursue any necessary short-term and long-term medical care needs and rehabilitation services to aid in your recovery.
