How to Find a Motorcycle Accident Injury Attorney
We have all seen motorcyclists on roadways on beautiful spring and fall days. However, as much as people enjoy riding motorcycles, there is always the potential for a serious accident. Of course, motorcycle accident victims’ injuries can be catastrophic. Indeed, rarely do motorcycle accident victims escape without a hospital trip for treatment of fractured bones road rash or other severe injuries. Therefore, if a motorcycle accident injures you, you need an experienced motorcycle accident injury attorney.


Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents


There are several causes of accidents involving motorcycle riders and motor vehicles:

  • Texting and driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Speeding
  • Failing to follow traffic signals or signs
  • Driving an ill-maintained vehicle (i.e. unsafe to drive)
  • Distracted by any other means

Notwithstanding the above, left-hand turns by motor vehicles in front of motorcycles cause a large percentage of motorcycle accidents.

However, not all risks associated with riding a motorcycle concern other drivers. For instance, alcohol and other drugs can impair a person’s judgment and cause dangerously reckless behavior.

Consequently, motorcyclists who drink alcohol or use drugs before they ride are taking a severe risk.

All things considered, the best steps motorcycle riders can do to protect themselves is to wear protective head, eye, and body gear. In addition, motorcyclists should always maintain an acute awareness of their surroundings and road conditions while riding.

However, accidents that occur because of the negligence of another driver are not as easy to prevent.

What Types of Injuries Does a Motorcycle Crash Cause?

Of course, people get injured in a motor vehicle accident involving two cars. However, in car accidents, the drivers are protected by the frame of their car, seat belts, etc.

Therefore, it is not surprising that motorcycle accidents cause many types of injuries:

  • Soft tissue
  • Bruises, lacerations
  • Bone fractures
  • Road rash
  • Concussions, head injuries
  • Shoulder, back and neck sprains/strains
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury
  • Amputations of limbs
  • Spinal cord/paralysis
  • Wrongful death

Serious injuries that a person gets in a motorcycle accident can mean hospitalization for days or weeks. Additionally, once the injured person is released from the hospital, she will have multiple follow-up visits with a doctor.

Last, people who get a motorcycle accident injury may also need multiple visits for physical therapy.
