Riding a motorcycle is a thrilling experience, and many motorcyclists may go through their lifetime without any incident.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

The types of injuries from motorcycle accidents can range from mild to serious trauma, commonly including:

  • Head and neck injuries, such as concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
  • Back injuries, including herniated discs.
  • Broken bones, including severe fractures in the extremities.
  • Severe road rash.
  • Spinal cord injuries, such as paralysis.
  • Internal organ damage.

Sadly, motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to be killed in an accident than those in passenger vehicles, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Why Motorcycle Accidents Happen

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by the same kinds of driver error or negligence seen in automobile collisions:

  • Speeding
  • Distraction / Texting while driving>
  • Drugged or drunk driving
  • Tailgating
  • Driver fatigue
  • Reckless driving
  • Running red lights or stop signs

The NHTSA reports that nearly 5,000 riders were killed in crashes that took place in 2018. To help reduce this number in the future, the agency encourages safe riding practices and road user cooperation.

What is the Value of My Case?

The value of your motorcycle accident case will often depend on injury severity and how your life has been impacted. An experienced attorney that has handled cases involving motorcycle accidents can identify all of the applicable damages and estimate how much compensation you should be entitled to. However, if you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to be compensated for your losses. The damages you pursue can include, present and future medical expenses, lost wages from the work you had to miss while recovering, diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, any permanent disability or disfigurement, plus more.

Why Hire a Lawyer for New Haven Motorcycle Crash Cases?

A lawyer has the ability and resources to take on the burden of handling your case, while you focus on regaining your health. They can also guide you on how best to utilize all available insurance coverage and will protect you from the insurance companies. Insurers are not your friend, and their only objective is to either deny your claim or minimize compensation as much as possible. Having legal representation will ensure evidence will be preserved to prove your case. If necessary, they have professional connections with investigators who can look over the scene of the accident and locate, then interview witnesses. This is all in an effort to build the strongest possible case that will maximize your recovery.
