Statistics indicate that about 88,000 motorcyclists suffered injuries in crashes in 2015 alone. Many motorcycle accident injuries are severe and can be completely life-changing. In the days and weeks following a crash, it may seem like recovery from your injuries is out of reach. However, with the right medical and legal assistance, it is possible to regain control of your life following an accident. One inspiring story about a Texas man demonstrates how you can find fulfillment following tragic injuries.
Three years after losing his brother to a motorcycle accident, Artis Thompson III (who goes by “AT3”) was in his own motorcycle crash in 2012. Because of the way the bike fell, the crash causes him to lose part of his right arm and his entire left leg. Prior to the crash, AT3 had been an extremely active and successful athlete, playing football, boxing, and working as a well-known fitness trainer in the Katy area.
After his motorcycle accident completely changed his life and movement abilities, AT3 used support from his family and knowledge from his fitness background to engage in his own rehabilitation program to learn how to regain abilities using a prosthetic leg.
To say he was successful in overcoming his injuries is an understatement, as AT3 has now competed on the elite obstacle show American Ninja Warrior in both 2015 and 2016. He is an example of how motorcycle accident victims can work to regain abilities after severe and disabling crash injuries.
Overcoming serious injuries often requires the help of many, however. Many crash victims rely on teams of medical professionals to stabilize their injuries and help them through rehabilitation. In addition, the financial losses of a motorcycle accident can be extensive, so the help of an experienced legal team is often necessary for financial recovery.
