A motorcycle accident is not only devastating, but it can be brutal as well. Every year thousands of motorcyclists die or are severely injured. A motorcyclist can suffer a life-altering disability as a result of a crash.
In 2010, a Rancho Cucamonga teenager suffered horrific injuries from a motorcycle accident. He was found unconscious at the scene. Investigators are still not sure what caused his to crash - he does not remember and there were no witnesses. He sustained numerous injuries, including a traumatic brain injury, extensive nerve damage to his spine, arm and hand. He underwent nerve transfer surgery that took 7 hours and he remained in a coma for close to three weeks.
Today he is working hard to recover with physical therapy and speech therapy part of his daily routine. He is improving daily and can now drive himself to his doctor appointments; however, he still has limited movement in his arm and has trouble speaking. He is looking forward to getting back on a motorcycle one day.
Oftentimes, motorcycle injuries are tragic and result in long-term care, leaving the victim bedridden for months. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will fight hard to get the compensation you deserve.
