 Honolulu, HI - Motorcyclist Critically Injured in Crash on Farrington Hwy near Pohakunui Ave

Traffic crashes involving motorcycles often cause riders to sustain injuries that are catastrophic in nature. This is usually due to the absence of protection motorcyclists have against the force of larger, more powerful vehicles. Some of the injuries that are commonly seen in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Bone breaks/Bone Fractures
  • Damage to the spine
  • Disc Injury/Disc Herniation 
  • Death

Recovering from a severe injury usually costs tens of thousands of dollars in hospital bills. The average person does not have this kind of money to spare. In addition to large medical care costs, injured crash victims may have to deal with lost wages, pain, suffering, and more. Depending on the cause of an injurious motorcycle accident, victims may have legal options to help them recover. Crash victims and their families can contact a personal injury lawyer who can help them file a claim for compensation. Compensation can cover the costs related to lost wages, vehicle repairs, medical bills, and more.

This can prove to be a problem without the help of an attorney.
