Aggressive representation for your motorcycle accident claim.
Every motorcyclist knows that there is an increased risk of an accident any time they are out on public area roadways. Motorists simply do not pay close attention to what is happening around them, and they make moves that leave the motorcyclist in a position where they are unable to avoid a crash.
We are dedicated to helping you recover full compensation.
Motorcycle accidents often leave riders struggling to recover from their injuries. Motorcyclists are in a vulnerable position when in traffic, and any crash has the potential to cause significant and lasting injuries.
Common injuries in motorcycle accidents
In motorcycle accidents, the most common injuries are:
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Fractured or broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe burns
- Damage to internal organs
- Internal bleeding
Another injury that is specific to motorcycle accidents is the biker’s arm, a condition caused by the motorist’s instinct to wrap his arms around his body while being thrown from the motorcycle during an accident. When landing, the arms absorb the greatest impact, which can lead to permanent nerve damage and other serious injuries.
The treatment of these injuries can be costly, and result in you missing time from work. Soon after your accident, the insurance companies will begin to evaluate your case. They will know exactly what it is worth and approach you with a number that may be substantially less than you expect. They hope that you will release them from future responsibility for as little money as possible.
Common risks faced by motorcycle riders.
Riding a motorcycle comes with certain risks, and the negligent and risky behaviors of other drivers compound this risk. In fact, motorcycle riders and passengers may be surprised to learn the following about their chance of being involved in an accident:
Two-thirds of accidents involving a motorcycle and other vehicles involved the other driver violating the biker’s right of way on the road.
Individuals who ride on or drive motorcycles are 26 times more likely to die in an accident than people in other types of vehicles.
Bikers are five times more likely to suffer injuries in an accident.
The fatality rate for motorcycle accidents has steadily increased since 1999.
Bikers face a host of unique challenges and other issues that may threaten their health and safety. From visual challenges to poor road conditions, motorcycle riders deal with increased chances of accidents and accident-related injuries.
