The family and friends of Erich Victa are coming together to help him recover after his traumatic motorcycle accident in Feb. 2011.

On Feb. 5th, 2011 Erich was in a traumatic motorcycle. He was out with his buddies for what looked like a normal Saturday morning ride. Erich was riding with 8 buddies through the mountains near Tecopa,CA about 80 miles outside of Las Vegas. As an experienced rider Erich did not for see the gravel in the road as he curved quickly around the mountain pass; Erich and his bike went tumbling hard and at high speeds for close to140 feet. The buddies who where there with him saved his life that day! He was airlifted to UMC where he spent over a month in the trauma ICU. Erich received extensive injuries: broken neck, traumatic brain injury, several broken ribs, broken hand, serious nerve damage on his entire right side to name a few. Erich spent another month in 2 rehabilitation hospitals. After coming home to his girlfriend RaShelle and her son Seth he's continued a daily outpatient rehabilitation center specializing in Traumatic Brain Injuries.

As the family and friends of Erich we all know how he has made a living... He's been an independent business owner running his own design firm for 17 plus years. Since the accident in Feb. 2011 Erich has not been able to work. Thank God that Erich had health insurance which has paid a significant portion of the doctor bills but not all of them. Erich has not had any income or insurance to cover his bills or living expenses. RaShelle has been working hard to maintain the life they had prior to this accident but bottom line it has not been enough. Erich needs our help to manage his doctor bills, and living expenses which will allow him to fully recover. The doctors have advised Erich that he has at the very least another 6 to 9 months before he can begin working again.

As Erich's family and friends can we help him in his time of need? Any amount you are able to give will help Erich recover and regain his life. Thank you!

PS. Erich's major injury is a Traumatic Brain Injury. Although Erich looks better his TBI is his challenge in getting back to work.
