Compound fractures because of an automobile crash or a knee joint break that occurs when a pedestrian is struck by a automobile in a crosswalk is a serious fracture that can have long-term effects. The crushing bone injury to the ankle and leg that a motorcyclist’s receives when he or she is sideswiped by a car in a motorcycle accident can lead to permanent disability. Even a broken wrist, finger or arm for a senior citizen after a fall in a nursing home can be complicated as healing takes more time than it does for a younger person.

Motorcycle riders, and the injuries they suffer as a result of an accident, are unique for many different reasons. Due to a lack of protection between riders, the road, and other vehicles, motorcyclists often suffer very serious injuries during accidents. What could be a simple “fender bender” to someone in a full size car, can cause serious injuries to a motorcycle rider.
Motorcycles are vulnerable to a unique set of risks on the road, meaning even the most experienced riders can crash. Motorcycle accidents can occur because of several factors, such as:
- Construction zones
- Road hazards
- Distracted drivers
- Motorists failing to yield the right of way
- Vehicle drivers changing lanes without yielding

Pedestrian Accident Attorney
When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the injuries may be very severe. Severe spinal, head, neck,paralysis, broken bones, or loss of a limb can all happen to pedestrians when they are hit by vehicles.
Many times, the driver of the vehicle, or their insurance company, will try to shift the blame for the accident onto the pedestrian. Police sometimes claim that the pedestrian was not inside the crosswalk when they come to the scene, as the pedestrian has fallen outside the crosswalk area. Insurance adjusters will often affix the blame on the pedestrian, saying that the pedestrian should have noticed the car coming and got out of the way. Many times it is harder to get an insurance company to pay for the injury to a pedestrian than it is to pay for the injury to a person inside a vehicle.

Slip and Fall Attorney
In the case of a slip or fall accident, the law doesn’t hold businesses responsible for the accident unless the company or its employees failed to meet a legal duty of care.
If you desire to sue for an injury that happened at a business location, you must prove that the business was legally at fault.
Slip and fall injuries can occur in many of ways. All business establishments can be sued for slips, falls, and collisions. The owners of a business may be sued based on poor hiring, supervision, or training of employees. Each state has its own laws that determine the standards of care that can apply in any personal injury case involving a business.
Courts understand that businesses can’t prevent every slip and fall accident from occurring. They require that businesses exercise the same amount of care as a reasonably prudent person would. This means guarding against foreseeable problems and taking reasonable precautions to prevent accidents. You can recover damages for many types of personal injury only if you can show that the business failed in these duties.
