MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

HELPING INJURED MOTORCYCLISTS RECOVER COMPENSATION

Route 114 is a beautiful, scenic course that takes drivers through Barrington, Warren and other picturesque towns in East Bay, Rhode Island. Though it is the perfect track for scooters, motorcycles and other vehicles to enjoy the scenery, it is also a busy road, and our firm has seen many motorcyclists involved in accidents.

Despite concerted efforts to encourage drivers to pay more attention to motorcyclists, motorcycle accidents still occur in high numbers. The relative exposure of a cyclist involved in a scooter accident or motorcycle crash makes even a minor collision a significant event.

Before trying to work with the insurance companies on your own, consider hiring an East Bay motorcycle accident lawyer. Figliola and Romano ensures that your every possible need is addressed and that the compensation you receive is appropriate.

RHODE ISLAND’S NO HELMET LAW

In Rhode Island, motorcyclists are not required to wear helmets. Even with a helmet, however, when a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, severe and catastrophic injuries are common. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, back and neck injuries, and paralysis are often reported.

If you or your loved one is facing expensive and lengthy treatments, filing a¬†personal injury claim to collect damages is one step toward recovery. Physical therapy, surgeries and rehabilitation can be costly, and in many cases additional devices and services are necessary after an accident. Purchasing wheelchairs, hiring care workers and adapting one’s home to suit one’s new lifestyle needs are all costly endeavors and must be considered when calculating a claim.

THE UNEXPECTED COSTS OF INJURIES DUE TO MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

In addition to overt costs such as medical bills, you must also consider lost wages, strain on personal relationships and occupational changes when calculating compensation. Some insurance companies are loathe to work with accident victims when considering these additional costs, but our attorneys are skilled negotiators and trial lawyers who are prepared to go to court.

Protect yourself and your family from future costs and damages by trusting your case to a firm that is committed to exceptional results.
