Common Motorcycle-Related Injuries
Throughout our years in practice, we have helped victims recover compensation for a wide range of injuries. Unfortunately, these injuries are often very serious in nature, and can deeply impact the victims and their families.
Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries: Even the least serious spinal cord injuries can result in loss of feeling, paralysis and impaired motor function. Victims of spinal cord injuries often require extensive physical therapy and costly extended care.
- Traumatic brain injury: Traumatic brain and head injuries most often occur as a result of excessive force trauma to the head, causing the brain to bounce of the skull. Brain and head injuries can lead to tearing and bruising of the brain, in turn resulting from impaired cognitive skills. Brain and head injuries require extensive medical treatment and continued care.
- Disfigurement: Motorcycle accidents can result in a wide variety of permanent scarring, including disfigurement from road rash, burns, cuts and even amputations. More than just physical trauma, these injuries can lead to emotional turmoil and often require costly surgical procedures to repair.
