We are committed to helping you recover damages for your injuries so you can move on with your life. We work with the best doctors in the area to get you the care you deserve while also working to secure the compensation to which you are entitled.

What are common injuries that can result from a motorcycle accident?

Unlike a car, a motorcycle provides very little protection in the event of an accident; a motorcycle does not offer the weight and bulk of a car, characteristics that can provide a measure of protection in case of an accident. The following are common injuries suffered by motorcyclists in motorcycle accidents:

  • Head and brain injuries. A helmet is an important piece of motorcycle safety equipment, as it can help to reduce the extent of head and brain injuries. Blows, jolts, bumps to the head and penetrating head injuries can lead to traumatic brain injury. With a traumatic brain injury, the normal function of the brain is disrupted.
  • Broken bones and fractures. In a motorcycle accident, the force of impact between the motorcyclist’s body and the road or other hard surface can result in broken bones and fractures.
  • Road rash. Road rash is a skin abrasion that occurs as a result of the friction between unprotected skin and a hard, rough surface. Bare skin and skin covered by regular clothing is most vulnerable to road rash; protective clothing is the best way to prevent road rash.
  • Facial injuries and disfigurement. Facial injuries and disfigurement from scarring can occur as a result of abrasions and lacerations to the face. Wearing protective gear, such as a full-face helmet, can reduce the extent of such injuries.
  • Back and neck injuries. Injuries to the back and neck can sometimes result in a spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injuries range in severity and can result in full or partial paralysis.

Injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident can be very severe and have a detrimental effect on your life, both financially and emotionally. If you are suffering from a motorcycle injury, you may be facing costly medical bills and prolonged absence from work.
