You may end up requiring hospitalization, physical therapy or chiropractic treatments and thus be unable to work.

Who is Liable When an Animal Crossed the Road?
When an animal suddenly darts out in front of a vehicle or motorcycle, it’s normal to swerve in order to avoid a collision. If the animal is large enough, it’s normal to assume that it can result in significant damage and serious injuries. Swerving can lead to collisions, however, and it may not be clear-cut who is to blame.
The law views crashes with wild animals differently than it does those with domestic animals. If a crash happens as a result of a squirrel, deer, raccoon or bear, the driver who swerved and hit your motorcycle may be held responsible.

The FHWA (Federal Highway Administration) reports that there are around 300,000 animal-related collisions per year. It may be possible to determine the animal’s owner, who could be held responsible for the injuries and damage that occurred. If the animal is wild and a vehicle swerved to avoid it and hit you in the process, you may be entitled to compensation from that other driver.
A good lawyer can interview witnesses and collect other evidence from the scene, creating a solid case that results in financial awards.
