Man paralyzed after car turns in front of his motorcycle

As a motorcyclist, you know that the roads are more dangerous for you than for other drivers. You take a risk every time you go to work or drive recreationally, because you aren't a large vehicle and may not be seen coming around corners or on highways if other drivers don't pay attention. What should be an easy commute could end badly if others aren't paying attention or don't notice you on your motorcycle. While you can be hurt badly, paralyzed or killed, you still will need to manage your medical bills and wages to survive.

When an accident's not your fault, you shouldn't be left to face this struggle alone. You deserve compensation, much like this motorcyclist received after being paralyzed in a serious accident. The motorcyclist has received a $2.52 million settlement, according to a New Jersey news source. This settlement, while high, will need to pay for medical care, lost wages and other needs the man will have in the future.

The 49-year-old man was driving his motorcycle in June 2014, when another vehicle tried to turn left in front of him. The other driver's miscalculation led to the motorcyclist colliding with her vehicle. He had no time to stop before the crash, colliding with her at a rapid pace. He struck her head-on and was thrown from his vehicle.

The man landed on the pavement and suffered a shattered vertebrae. His spinal cord was damaged, leaving one leg paralyzed and another partially paralyzed. He moved forward with his case to make sure he'd be covered financially now and in the future.
