Motorcycle Accidents and Severe Injuries

With little physical protection, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to severe injuries in accidents. Common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Fractured bones
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord damage and paralysis
  • Severe burn injuries
  • Loss-of-limb/amputation injuries

These injuries can be life-altering for victims and their families alike. Our attorneys understand the extensive costs associated with severe injuries, and we work hard for the compensation you need for your unique circumstances.

Factors in Motorcycle Accidents

While motorcyclists are not immune to operator error, the truth is that many motorcycle accidents are the result of negligent passenger vehicle drivers.

This carelessness can come in many forms, but it often involves the passenger vehicle driver not noticing the presence of motorcycles. This puts the motorcyclist at risk in the event that the passenger vehicle driver moves into the path of the motorcycle.

Distracted driving and driving under the influence are also frequent factors in motorcycle accidents. Defective motorcycles and faulty motorcycle components can also contribute to accidents and injuries.
