Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accident claims tend to be more complex than typical car accident cases for a number of reasons. For one, motorcyclists are essentially unprotected in the event of a crash. Without car doors, seatbelts, and airbags, they are more likely to sustain severe, catastrophic injuries. Tragically, these injuries are often, ultimately, fatal.
Some of the most common motorcycle accident-related injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Burns and road rash
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Head, neck, and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Accidental amputation
- Internal organ damage
As a result of these types of injuries, motorcyclists often require extensive, ongoing treatment and care. This can be incredibly costly over the months or even years that follow, placing undue hardships on victims and their families.
Fighting for Fair Compensation
When someone else—whether it’s another motorist on the road or the manufacturer of a defective motorcycle part—is negligent and this leads to your injuries or losses, you are entitled to take legal action against the at-fault person or party. By filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim, you can seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income, funeral costs, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and other losses.
At Adams, Jordan & Herrington, P.C., we understand that you do not just need compensation for your immediate losses but for your projected future expenses, as well. To that end, our aggressive motorcycle accident lawyers are ready to fight tirelessly for the full, fair compensation you deserve.
