Motorcycle accident victims often suffer injuries that cause broken bones, bruising, scarring, disfigurement and death. Motorcycle drivers are often left with temporary or permanent disability. In the worst accidents, the injuries are catastrophic or fatal. If the accident was the fault of another party, the victim and his or her family are entitled to compensation.

Drivers have a responsibility to share the road with cyclists. Our experienced accident attorneys hold negligent drivers accountable for the injuries they cause.
In this case, our client, a young mother of two, was rear-ended and sustained a common elbow injury known as an ulnar nerve entrapment, an injury where the nerve running through the elbow becomes compressed and results in a numbness and tingling sensation in the hand. This injury often occurs in rear end accidents when a person is tightly gripping the steering wheel. After years of conservative treatment, our client underwent ulna nerve reposition surgery, which resulted in a rare complication known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Though the insurance company for years denied that any of the injuries sustained by our client were related to the accident, through intensive efforts including hiring preeminent medical experts, The Rousso and Boumel lawyers were able to prove that our client’s injuries were caused by the accident, resulting in this substantial recovery.
It has become common practice for insurance companies to dispute injuries suffered by claimants in auto-accidents where the damage to the vehicles is minimal. In this case, our client was significantly injured after her vehicle was rear-ended, but neither vehicle displayed significant damage. The Rousso and Boumel lawyers were able to prove, through meticulous research and investigation, that the injuries sustained by our client were caused by the accident in question.
