DEVASTATING MOTORCYCLE INJURIES
Since a motorcycle contains none of the same type of safety features that a car does, riders typically face severe injuries following even a minor collision. In the best-case scenario, a rider might be wearing heavy leather clothing and a full-coverage helmet. Not everyone is this diligent in his or her own protection, however. Riders can suffer an injury in the initial collision as well as additional injuries when they strike the pavement, concrete barriers, other vehicles or metal guardrails along the side of the road. Common injuries can include:
- Road rash
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Multiple fractures
High-speed collisions can also result in the wrongful death of the motorcycle rider. If you have lost a loved one in an accident caused by the negligence or inattention of another driver, do not hesitate to schedule a free consultation with a skilled lawyer. We can handle your injury claim or wrongful death claim to ensure you recover the maximum compensation possible in your situation.
