Motorcycle Accidents

After suffering a serious motorcycle accident, people usually wonder how they are going to cover medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. Insurance companies like to blame the accident on the motorcyclist. Often, it is not easy to get compensation from an insurance company or another organization. You can’t get it just by asking nicely.

Among auto accidents, motorcycle wrecks cause some of the most tragic injuries. Among these serious injuries are:

  • Road rash
  • Ankle or lower leg injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Other brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries/back injuries
  • Wrongful death

For such serious injuries, a lawyer must know every source of compensation available to a client. Any motorcycle crash can result in lost wages, property damage and large medical bills. A motorcycle head injury can cause a permanent disability and require special treatment and care for the rest of your life. A fatal crash can leave your family burdened with medical bills and funeral costs.

Experience Matters

A lawyer must be able to get settlements and verdicts that cover more than just a few medical bills. We will work hard to find ways to get you the money you need. Even if you don’t have insurance, there are other possible sources of recovery.

We will not guarantee a certain result because there are no guarantees in the law. But we will guarantee that we will work hard for you and your family. Our lawyer and staff will use their tremendous experience to find ways to make you whole again.

Closed Head & Brain Injuries

Head & Brain Injuries

How Do I Know if I Have a Closed Head Injury?

Although a closed head injury is considered a serious medical issue, it is often hard to diagnose. Closed head injuries can cause subtle to severe damages, including frequent blackouts, personality changes, seizures, and even death.

At The Law Office of Vern D. Richards, we understand how closed head injuries can change lives forever. We are committed to representing clients who have experienced closed head injuries, concussions and other brain injuries.

How Closed Head Injuries Change Lives

Closed head and brain injuries usually occur as the result of a non-penetrative blow to the head. They can be caused by any number of accidents, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents

A closed head injury causes brain swelling, increasing the pressure within the skull, which causes damage to the brain. The signs of a closed head brain injury may not be outwardly recognizable. Some potential signs of a closed head injury are:

  • Changes in personality
  • Unexplained blackouts
  • Lower degree of cognitive functioning
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headaches
  • Slurred speech
  • Memory loss

These and many other symptoms of a closed brain injury may become evident immediately following an accident, or they may develop over time. If you suspect a loved one has suffered a closed head injury, seek medical help immediately. After that, your next step should be contacting an experienced personal injury attorney.

How We Can Help

At The Law Office of Vern D. Richards, we treat closed head traumas as serious injuries. When we handle a brain injury case, we frequently consult neurological experts, economic experts and vocational rehabilitation counselors to offer their expertise regarding a case. In order to craft the most compelling defense possible, we take into account every aspect of a client’s claim.
