Motorcycle Accident Victims Need Legal Guidance

When a motorcycle is involved in an accident with another vehicle, it is typically the motorcyclist who suffers severe injury. This is because motorcyclists are far more exposed and have much less protection than those inside motor vehicles. Indeed, motorcycle accidents commonly result in catastrophic and permanent injuries that require long-term medical care.

Motorcycle Collisions Are Dangerous, And Sometimes Deadly

While all motorcyclists should adhere to motorcycle safety rules, in some situations, there is simply no possible way to avoid an auto accident. After all, what can you do when a drunk driver loses control of his or her car or another motorist swerves in and out of lanes without checking his or her blind spots?

Sadly, when other motorists engage in such reckless behavior, motorcycle accidents often occur, resulting in:

  • Brain and head injuries
  • Neck and back injuries, including spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Fractured and broken bones
  • Torn ligaments and muscle damage
  • Injuries that require one or more surgeries

If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to damages, including compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Additionally, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim if a family member loses his or her life in a fatal motorcycle accident.
