Motorcycle Wrecks

Motorcycles are smaller than cars. They are harder to see. They are less stable than a passenger car or truck. Collisions are more likely to occur, and the injuries suffered in a crash are generally much more serious for the rider. These are all reasons to pay closer attention to motorcycles. They are not an excuse for liability after a motorcycle accident.

The attorneys at E & E Law Group help injured motorcycle riders get the compensation they deserve when other drivers fail to exercise due care. While contacting an attorney as soon as possible is important after any accident, it is crucial after motorcycle wrecks that often involve:

  • Head injuries: These can range from concussions to debilitating brain trauma. Many involve closed-head injuries, which may not be obvious.
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries: Riders are often thrown from their bikes, the impact of which can damage the fragile neck and spine and result in loss of function or paralysis.
  • Road rash: Although the name does not sound serious, road rash is an extremely painful injury. It can also lead to permanent scarring, nerve damage and infections that are difficult to treat.
  • Muscle and nerve damage: When riders are thrown from their bikes, their natural instinct is to protect their face with their arms. The impact can damage the muscle tissue and nerves, which could result in permanent damage such as paralysis.
  • Leg injuries: The knees, legs and ankles are often fractured or even shattered in a crash. While broken bones and severe sprains may not be life-threatening themselves, complications can result in partial or total loss of function.
  • Fatal injuries: Many of the injuries mentioned above are life-threatening, and in some cases result in the wrongful death of the rider.
