Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycles don’t offer the protection of a passenger vehicle, when an accident occurs, the results are usually extremely severe. Without any protection aside from a helmet and other safety gear, motorcyclists are especially at risk and more vulnerable to serious, life-threatening injuries, such as extensive head injuries, concussions, and more. As a result, motorcycle accidents lead to double the amount of severe injuries and fatalities than any other type of vehicle-related accident. In fact, motorcycle accidents lead in numbers as the most prevalent cause of fatal accidents on the road in the United States.

When a motorcycle accident occurs and results in serious injuries, the victim almost always has to go through extensive medical treatments and procedures. Most motorcycle accident victims suffer from head injuries, which in turn can be extremely costly and time-consuming. If brain damage occurs as well, the victim’s life may altered in a significant way.

Other common injuries stemming from motorcycle accidents include:

  • Road rash
  • Bone fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Disfigurement
  • Concussion
  • Pelvic damage
  • Bruises
  • Death

What to do After An Motorcycle Accident

  • Immediately file an accident report with the police, sheriff or highway patrol, if the agency has not done so at the scene.
  • Write down the name, address, insurance information, vehicle license number and driver’s license number of any and all persons involved in the accident. Record names, addresses and telephone numbers of all witnesses.
  • Obtain photographs of the accident scene, all vehicles involved (before repairing) and any visible injuries to the parties involved, such as cuts, bruises, and scars.
  • Do not discuss the accident or your injuries with anyone, with the exception of your doctor and your attorney.
  • Do not consent to a recorded statement or sign any document without first reviewing it with your attorney. Innocent statements made by you attempting to assist an insurance adjuster can easily be misinterpreted and used to deny or minimize your recovery.
  • Immediately seek medical attention and tell your doctor the nature and extent of your pain and injury, and how the injury occurred.
  • Track Your Expenses.
    A strong claim clearly outlines the financial impact of your accident. Keep records of your:

    • medical bills,

    • and any other expenses your accident has caused.
