Motorcycle, bike, and pedestrian accidents all have one tragic thing in common – because of the unprotected nature of those involved, these accidents tend to result in severe injuries and often death. As a result, those injured in these accidents, and the families who have lost a loved one, need highly experienced personal injury representation in order to recover full and fair compensation for injuries that may last a lifetime.
Common injuries for motorcycle, bike, and pedestrian accidents include:
- broken bones and fractures,
- lacerations, including those caused by “road rash,”
- internal contusions and damages to organs,
- head injuries, including traumatic brain injury (“TBI”), and
Tragically, death can also result in crashes involving vehicles, particularly if the victim was struck by a vehicle going at a high rate of speed.
Seeking Full Compensation
For those injured severely, it is important to understand the prognosis of the injury, as there will be only one opportunity to recover compensation from those responsible. In relatively minor injuries, such as a broken arm or leg, the prognosis is likely to be good, and the injury may well be fully healed by the time that settlement negotiations or a trial take place.
In other cases, such as those involving paralysis or a TBI, a lifetime of care may be required. Not only is the injured victim entitled to recover for pain and suffering and other damages, a critical part of seeking full compensation is determining future lost wages and expenses concerning medical care.
In these cases, I and my firm retain accident reconstructionists, vocational experts, medical experts, and other experts to prove causation, damages, the likely lost wages suffered, and the likely cost of medical and care expenses for the injured person over his or her lifetime. In addition, I will also seek full compensation for the loss of enjoyment and related matters suffered by the injured victim and the victim’s family (including the spouse and minor children). In this regard, a “day in the life” video may be introduced to show what the daily life of a severely injured person and the person’s family is like following a tragic accident.

We hired Mr. Hurt to help settle a worker’s comp injury case for my husband. Mark, Bart, and Mary worked tirelessly to resolve his case and reach a settlement we were pleased with. They were always available to answer questions and returned calls in a timely manner.
