Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents
A serious motorcycle crash can change your life. Some of the most
- Head and traumatic brain injuries. A motorcyclist’s head is incredibly vulnerable and a likely site of injury should a crash occur. Traumatic brain injuries are one of the most common motorcycling accident injuries and are often more severe if a motorcyclist is not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.
- Road rash/road burn. In addition to wearing a helmet, it’s also important to wear long-sleeved shirts and pants and to choose materials that are durable. In the event of a crash, a motorcyclist may be thrown off of their bike and might travel a significant distance along the road before coming to a stop. This can result in severe road rash injuries.
- Crush and amputation injuries. One of the most devastating types of injuries that a motorcyclist can occur is a limb crush or limb amputation injury. This injury type can occur when a motorcyclist is pinned between a car and the motorcycle or a vehicle and the road/another object.
- Spinal cord injuries. A tragic injury type that will have permanent implications is a spinal cord injury. A spinal cord injury can result in permanent partial or complete paralysis.
In addition to the above, bone fractures, internal injuries, and psychological injuries are all common, too.
Recovering the Compensation Award You Deserve
When you are in a motorcycle accident caused by the fault of another party, you maintain the right to pursue damages by filing a claim against the at-fault party’s liability insurance of filing a civil action directly against the at-fault party. If you can prove that your accident and injuries would not have occurred but for the other party’s negligence–such as speeding, drunk driving, failing to yield, aggressive driving, etc.–you can recover compensation for the full extent of losses you’ve suffered. Our lawyers will help you to file your claim, prove fault and damages, and negotiate your settlement.
