Recovering compensation for these motorcycle accidents can be more complicated and challenging than a motor vehicle accident. One reason is that the extent of injuries to a motorcycle rider after an accident can be severe.

Motorcycle riders involved in accidents with a motor vehicle often suffer significant injuries, which can take months or even years to fully heal from. Further, treating significant injuries is often very expensive, for which the insurance companies typically will deny and not pay for. This is where you need our attorneys to fight against the insurance company to get what you deserve!

Another reason motorcycle accidents can be complicated is that insurance companies frequently have negative stereotypes about motorcycle riders and are quick to shift the blame on the rider. However, most riders are actually very alert and cautious on the road and are aware of the risk of serious injuries if they are not attentive. As such, our attorneys are well aware of the tactics used against the victims of motorcycle accidents are vigorously fight the insurance companies to obtain a result you deserve. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THE INSURANCE COMPANIES TO GET AWAY WITH BLAMING THE VICTIM!

It is not a surprise that motorcyclists often suffer catastrophic injuries in motorcycle accidents. This is due to the protections afforded by a larger vehicle compared to a motorcycle. Some of the common injuries which can result in motorcycle accidents are:

  • Spinal cord injuries– Where the force of the impact in an accident can break the spinal cord, or cause swelling and pressure on the spinal cord, which causes temporary or permanent paralysis.
  • Traumatic brain injuries(TBI)– Most riders suffer head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) which can result in permanent brain damage.
  • Road rash–Road rash is caused when a rider slides across the pavement which causes cuts and scrapes to the skin.
  • Broken bones– Riders suffer broken bones throughout the body due to the force of the impact, or by being pinned under the motorcycle or another vehicle.
  • Internal injuries– Riders can suffer injuries to the internal organs without them knowing. This includes bruising, tears, and internal bleeding caused by blunt force trauma.
  • Soft-tissue injuries– Riders frequently suffer muscle, tendon, and ligament tears, especially in the joints when involved in an accident.
