Motorcycle accidents can be particularly severe since there is little to protect the motorcyclist from other vehicles on the road, or the asphalt. Motorcyclists are highly exposed and have few safety measures in place to protect them from physical harm if they are involved in an accident. Motorcyclists typically endure serious physical injuries, such as severe disfigurement, spinal cord, neck and head injuries, and serious impact-related injuries like internal hemorrhaging or broken or fractured bones. In the worst accidents, a motorcyclist can be killed.
Motorcyclists also suffer significant financial hardship as a result of a motorcycle accident. Not only does the motorcyclist suffer significant injuries, which carry heavy medical expenses, the motorcyclist suffers property damage and motorcyclists are often left unable to work, either for a period of recovery or indefinitely, and can lose their ability to earn an income. Sometimes, insurance limits are too low to cover all of the expenses associated with a motorcycle accident, which can make the situation all that much more stressful.

Managing Bias Against Motorcyclists
Many people in Brookfield have preconceived notions and bias against motorcyclists. They might think that motorcyclists are inherently reckless, negligent and dangerous. This is not true and is an unfair generalization of motorcyclists. Motorcyclists are often not responsible for causing an accident. People in other vehicles might not check their blind spot or may not be paying attention to the motorcyclists sharing the road. Motorcyclists are often the victim, not the cause. Attorney Jon P. Groth works hard to combat stereotyping of motorcyclist victims by presenting evidence and witness testimony to demonstrate the liability of others.
