Motorcyclist Seriously Injured When Hit by SUV in Chesapeake, VA

Comments (0)
A Chesapeake, Virginia (VA), woman has been charged with causing a July 2011 accident that sent a motorcycle rider to the hospital, according to the Virginian-Pilot. The motorcyclist suffered multiple injuries and needed to have a leg amputated after being struck by the woman's SUV when she failed to yield right on Mount Pleasant Road.

Accidents often cause life-threateningl injuries to motrcycle riders
 because motorcycles are smaller than SUVs, cars and trucks and because a biker is exposed. In motorcycle accidents, then, it is not uncommon for riders to sustain catastrophic brain, spinal cord and arm and leg injuries and deaths.

After a motorcycle accident caused by another drivers, damages the injured person may recover include 
  • Medical care
  • Loss of wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Psychological therapy
  • Property damage

Some motorcycle riders may sign up for motorcycle insurance to protect them from incurring crippling financial losses when an accident happens, but there may not be enough coverage for liability, property, medical, uninsured driver and collision. To learn more about the recoveries you or a loved one may be awarded in a motorcycle accident that results in death or serious injuries, check out our case results.
