Motorcycle accidents: what is West Virginia road rash?

Many West Virginians know that the beautiful weather and gorgeous scenery in our state can make it perfect for riding a motorcycle. Residents often take to their bikes during the spring, summer and fall as a way to unwind, relax and perhaps, even save money on fuel expenses. However, with the benefits of riding a motorcycle also come risks. Distracted, unaware and otherwise negligent drivers can strike motorcyclists, leaving them with serious, sometimes life-threatening injuries. When this happens, legal action may be warranted to recover damages.

The aftermath of a devastating accident

Most West Virginia residents are probably so used to seeing news reports about accidents of all kinds that they may not even really notice unless the accident is particularly devastating, like a large-scale work accident or truck accident. If there are catastrophic injuries or even fatalities involved, many people will take note. However, the fact is that many people probably just think, "That would never happen to me."

Dealing with the aftermath of your car accident

A car accident can be a scary experience, especially if you were seriously injured. Accidents can cause physical and emotional damage that can last for many months or even years. While your auto insurance company may pay for vehicle damage and your medical insurance may cover some of your injuries that likely won't be enough. If you were involved in a West Virginia car crash, we can help you obtain compensation for your damages.
