To many, motorcyclists appear to be a fun and effective way to travel around. While these small vehicles can be very reliable and enjoyable to ride, they also pose many risks to riders. Unlike other vehicles, motorcycles do not have a protective shell helping to guard against serious injuries in the event of a crash. Additionally, the small size of these vehicles can sometimes make them difficult to spot. If a driver fails to check blind spots or yield to oncoming traffic, a serious motorcycle crash could ensue.
At Galligan & Reid, P.C., we understand that the aftermath of a motorcycle collision can be tragic and life altering. We also recognize that it can be a difficult time for those suffering injuries in a motorcycle accident. Oftentimes, accident victims suffer head injuries. Even when a helmet and protective gear is worn, riders in Iowa could suffer a traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries and other injuries that could be temporarily or permanently disabling.
