Motorcycle Accidents

Injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident are usually very serious.  It is every rider’s worst nightmare – being hit and thrown from the bike.  Unfortunately, many inattentive drivers on the road fail to notice that there is a motorcycle rider in the area, and the result can be devastating.

In my experience, the most common type of motorcycle collision involves a circumstance where someone is making a left hand turn in front of you, violating your right of way.  Also common is a rear-end collision causing the motorcyclist serious injury or death.  People just don’t seem to watch out for motorcycles.  It also seems folks have a difficult time calculating the closing speed of an approach motorcyclist.

Types of Motorcycle Injuries

If you are the victim of a motorcycle accident, you are likely suffering from serious physical injuries that may require months, years or a lifetime to recover from.  Typical injuries I’ve witnessed from motorcycle collisions are:

 

  • Spinal injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Diminished sensation in the arms and/or legs
  • Amputation
  • Severe Road Rash

 

While these injuries range in severity, they will all require extra medical attention and probable rehabilitation efforts.  You may be unable to work for a period of time and may suffer from emotional trauma as well.  Given that most all riders have an “independent spirit” in the first place, it is very common that I see my motorcyclist clients suffer severe depression from being unable to perform the most routine household and personal tasks after being injured in a collision.  Let The Outlawyer be there for you during this time!
