Motorcyclists who are injured in motorcycle accidents often face an uphill battle when trying to recover compensation for their injuries from the insurance companies of drivers who have caused the accidents. Many insurance companies can be very difficult when it comes to handling claims involving injured or deceased motorcyclists in Coppell.
Unfortunately, motorcyclists have very little protective equipment to absorb the impact from a collision with a vehicle. This can cause motorcyclists to receive some of the most significant injuries of any individuals traveling on the roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, around 5,000 motorcyclists are killed in accidents each year, and around 80,000 are injured. Injuries and deaths have been on the rise, as the number of motorcycles on the roadways is increasing.
