The city of Goodyear, recognized for its preceding Tire & Rubber Company, was established by company founder Paul Litchfield in 1917. Nearly a century later, the 116.5 square mile Arizona city has blossomed at an approximate growth rate of 16% and shows a counting population of 59,508. Based on a Citizen Satisfaction Survey, an estimated 96% of its residents feel that Goodyear is a safe place to live. Nevertheless, as a growing city, Goodyear experiences its share of auto accidents, many of which involve motorcyclists and may cause traumatic brain injury.
Motorcycle accidents account for 85% of all traffic fatalities in the United States and Goodyear is no exception. Far too often, motorcycle crashes in Goodyear are caused by another driver’s negligence or distracted driving practices. Even with the proper precautions, the motorcycle accident can result in injury, especially if the motorcyclist is not wearing a helmet. When a motorcyclist is injured at no fault of their own, he or she may be able to seek compensation from negligent parties for pain and suffering, loss of wages, medical bills, and much more.
Some motorcycle accident survivors may endure a traumatic brain injury (TBI) even if a helmet is being worn. It is fortunate that several brain injury victims have a successful and full recovery; however, a large amount of motorcyclists who have suffered TBI may require long-term treatment or even 24-hour care for the rest of their life. If your brain injury was caused by another person’s negligence, a skilled Goodyear brain injury attorney may be able to help you receive compensation for expenses associated with your injury.
