Common Injuries Seen in Motorcycle Accidents
Drivers who make improper lane changes or fail to take notice of motorcycles at red lights or in intersections can cause significant damage. Motorcyclists experience catastrophic injuries and death at a much higher rate than motorists. Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken clavicles (collarbones)
- Broken arms/legs
- Road rash
- Spinal cord injuries
These injuries often require extensive treatment. Surgeries, therapy, cosmetic procedures, and other treatments carry significant costs, which can leave injured people in debt or unable to access the support they need. Personal injury compensation covers medical bills and can ensure that you can access the things you need — but only if you receive the full measure of damages for your injury.
Whether by negotiating a fair settlement or advocating for you at trial, our motorcycle accident attorneys will do whatever is necessary to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. If your loved one passed away as the result of a motorcycle accident injury, our attorneys can assist you with a wrongful death claim.
Act Fast — Call Our Office From The Scene
Swift action is essential. Insurance companies begin to investigate accidents immediately to gather evidence that they can use against injured victims, so it is very important to take proactive steps. Call the police, take photos and speak with witnesses. Finally, contact an attorney. At StachlerHarmon Attorneys at Law, our attorneys are available to assist you, even if you are still on the scene of the accident.
