    last month on the 13th someone sideswiped me and I was in the hospital for 3 weeks I fractured my eye socket fracture at the base of my skull on my right arm they were two fractures and two breaks, on my left arm there was 1 fracture I had two skin grafts one on my left hand and one on my right shoulder I had to get some metal put in my right forearm and I busted my tibia I think it was called in my right leg and I got some metal put in there put in. but over a month with no working I'm doing pretty good now I got my cast on my right arm removed I got the splint removed on my left arm my skin grafts are doing great this Friday I go in and get my straight leg brace taken off and I'm assuming onto a hinged brace but I guess it was pretty bad luckily Ih ave good wife to stick by me though

    I feel for you and you have my prayers, my last wreak was in 1990 and my body reminds me of it and other mishaps daily. ;-)

    My wife was onboard and is still getting knee injections.

    I wonder what aftermath goes after such accidents, I mean in the court. Did that guy incur a sentence because of that? Anyway, it's truly great when you have a jural support from a good law firm. Here is a firm I could find recently ( site's url: https://federal-lawyer.com/florida/orlando-federal-defense/ ), where I've signed papers and got my own lawyer. And after some talking with him, I can say for sure that this firm have nice jural professionals.

    don't let the accident discourage you from continuing to enjoy riding motorcycles. While accidents can be frightening, it's important to remember that they are not the norm. With proper precautions, ongoing education, and responsible riding, you can continue to pursue your passion while prioritizing safety. If you need lawyer help contact me
