Common Injuries Sustained in Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are serious business, and when you are involved in one, your injuries could be severe, requiring immediate medical attention to prevent or minimize disability. We have helped victims who have suffered a variety of injuries in motorcycle crashes, including:
- Broken bones
- Head trauma
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Internal bleeding and bruising
- Neck, back, and spine injuries
- “Biker’s arm” (when the rider lands on their arm in an accident, resulting in serious injury)
- Road Rash
Injuries caused by the impact of the collision as well as harm caused by hitting the pavement are often painful and typically take a long time to heal. Sometimes external injuries are the only ones sustained, but more often than not, there are also severe injuries below the surface that need to be treated. Our team will review the details of your accident to determine how much compensation to seek to cover your medical costs and lost wages, as well as other compensation you may be owed. As the victim of a motorcycle accident, you have the right to seek financial compensation for your injuries, and we will work hard to make sure that you recover what you are owed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Motorcycle accidents can vary dramatically from other motor vehicle accidents. Once you have been hurt in an accident, you likely have many questions and need those answers fast. To save you some time, here are a few frequently asked questions that have been brought up in other cases. Unfortunately, due to the nature of vehicular accidents, these questions and answers are broadly stated. For questions more specific to your case, reach out to us for a free consultation right away.
What are my chances of being in a motorcycle accident?
According to HG.org, there were fuel and other liquid leaks found at 62 percent of motorcycle accidents, which substantially raises the risk of a fire occurring at the scene. If this happened to you, you might be able to pursue compensation from the manufacturer, even if you were mostly responsible for the accident.
While it may be hard to believe, 92 percent of motorcycle riders involved in accidents were not professionally trained before operating one. This results in a high number of accidents involving riders taught by their loved ones and/or self-taught.
What are some common causes of motorcycle accidents?
We have seen it all. Motorcycle accidents are typically horrific situations that result in life-changing consequences and a long journey of medical bills, spikes in insurance rates, courtroom battles, and more. Below are a few of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents we see the most often.
- Reckless driving: When other drivers are unaware or simply do not see a motorist nearby, a serious accident could occur.
- Left-hand turns: The visibility of a motorcycle can be low if on a traffic-heavy road or in at low-light times of the day. When a driver makes a left-hand turn at an intersection and does not see the oncoming motorist, this could result in a head-on accident that leaves both drivers injured.
- Impaired and distracted driving: Drivers who choose to get behind the wheel after drinking, using drugs, or being fatigued are putting everyone at risk. A motorist is especially at risk since there is little physical protection if involved in a collision.
- Failure to obey the rules of the road: When we get in a hurry to get to work or anywhere for that matter, we sometimes cheat the rules a bit to get to our destination faster. Drivers who fail to obey the rules of the road put others’ lives at risk and tend to cause serious accidents.
- Road defects: With only two wheels and less balance, a road defect can be a highly dangerous situation for a motorist to come across. Navigating around potholes, construction zones, and road barriers can be complicated for anyone, but when your bike depends on your speed, the wind, and other environmental elements, these become grave obstacles.
