Motorcycle accidents can have invisible effects

Motorcycle accidents can be devastating, even if you feel like you got out of it relatively unscathed. Some injuries are less apparent than others, and especially if another party in the accident was seriously injured in a visible and sensational way, you may not have gotten the medical help you need. One of the most common injuries that can occur and subsequently go undiagnosed in a motorcycle accident is a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Seeking damages for intangible loss

Recovering from a car accident may seem like a straightforward process, but it can be deceptively complex and lengthy. While you might be able to easily measure how long it takes you to recover from many forms of physical injury, it is often the less visible forms of injury that take the longest to heal and are some of the most painful.

The attractive nuisance in premises liability

There are a number of ways that a private individual may face a premises liability suit, rather than a business or other impersonal entity. Generally, a court considering a private premises liability suit will look to the degree of negligence present on the part of the defendant, as well as the relationship between the injured party and the defendant. For instance, if an individual is injured on private property, but is not there as a guest of the owner in some recognizable capacity, it is very difficult to press liability charges. There are, however, some exceptions.

Immigrants and motorcyclists often face unfair attitudes

For many parts of the world, riding a motorcycle is just as common as driving a car, or more so. Many immigrants who come to the United States are surprised to learn, among other things, that most drivers are still not accustomed to sharing the road with motorcycles. Whereas other parts of the world may have roughly half of their drivers on motorcycles, in the U.S., it is a much smaller percentage. Unfortunately, this means that riding a motorcycle is an innately more dangerous act here than it may be in an immigrant's country of origin.
