Motorcycle Accidents in Nebraska
Each year, more than 200 people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across Nebraska. Riders on motorcycles are more likely to suffer fatal injuries in collisions due to the fact that they have very little protection during collisions. Additionally, 500 more are injured in motorcycle accidents across Nebraska each year. Riders are without adequate protection, which increases the likelihood of them sustaining critical injuries. Motorcyclists use minimum protection, which increases the chances of them sustaining life-altering injuries like broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and more. Most victims have to go through long-term treatments, like go to therapy and utilize medications. A fair share of victims sustain injuries so severe that they leave them permanently disabled. No one should have to pay for the negligence of another person. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of another driver’s actions, it is crucial that they reach out to a motorcycle accident attorney in Nebraska as soon as possible.
