As discussed last week, a motorcycle accident can leave you with significant injuries that cause severe pain. Many of these injuries have long-term effects, including disfigurement and disability. Broken bones may make it difficult for you to get to work or school, and a brain injury may leave you or a loved one reliant upon constant medical care. While recovering from these injuries, you have a lot to think about. How are you going to pay your medical expenses? If you are unable to work, how are you going to pay your other bills? How can you send the message that the negligent individual who hurt you will be held accountable?
