Personal Injury Lawyers You Can Trust
Although useful for avoiding traffic jams and enjoying long Sunday rides, motorcycles can be exceedingly dangerous. Motorcyclists lack the protection other drivers have from within cars, trucks, and other enclosed vehicles. Unfortunately, this lack of protection makes motorcyclists exceptionally prone to serious or fatal injury when they are involved in traffic accidents. When serious damage is inflicted, the injured motorcyclist may be eligible to receive compensation from the at-fault party.

Dealing with the aftermath of a crash is difficult in any circumstances, especially if you or someone you love sustained serious injuries. Our firm doesn’t want you to face this challenge alone.

What Causes Motorcycle Crashes?
Due to their smaller size, motorcycles often go unnoticed by less observant drivers, which can result in sideswiping accidents or direct collisions. Many motorcycle crashes occur because of driver errors like these, but can also be caused by dangerous road conditions, bad weather, or other outside causes. For example, construction areas might carelessly release debris onto the roads, causing a motorcycle crash or some other type of accident. In other cases, a motorcycle crash might be caused by faulty parts or defective mechanisms within the bike, in which case the manufacturer may be responsible for the resulting damage.
Common Types of Injuries
Motorcycle crashes can be disastrous, which means the resulting injuries may be catastrophic. The motorcyclist might be thrown from their vehicle, or could collide with other vehicles, become pinned underneath their bike, or strike a nearby obstacle. Any such injury could inflict serious damage.
Some of the most common types of injuries motorcycle crash victims suffer include:
- Severe road rash
- Puncture wounds
- Broken bones
- Muscular injuries
- Brain injuries
- Internal wounds
