Hello follow bikers_ George Tait here, Utah Bike Law.
We're going to talk a bit about the injuries that visit bikers when they are crashed into by offending
One is spine injuries; spine injuries can be devastating; they can be acute.
They happen after the crash, immediately after the crash, and they are often painful or you can

We go to trial quite often and you know we have all kinds of exhibits. This is a spine exhibit
obviously, you have the pelvis here, which another type of bad injury, oftentimes requiring being
laid up in bed for an extended period of time. Painful, you bear weight on our pelvis which is the

Here you have your cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spines. Each of these can be damaged in a
motorcycle crash and cause horrible, horrible injuries. Like I said, lasting for weeks, sometimes

You have got to have somebody in your corner, a law firm that knows some medicine, knows how
to get to trial, knows what to do. Whether you get to trial or not, the insurance company knows
who will and will not go to trial and represent you well. So, you need a law firm that's going to
fight the insurance companies.
Words of advice, be careful out there.
