Motorcycle AccidentWhile the injuries and deaths seem to have gone down recently involving motor vehicle and truck accidents, the amount of injuries and deaths have increased dramatically. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention between 2001-2008 there were an astonishing 1.22 million injuries involving motorcycle accidents and 34,000 deaths involving motorcycle accidents. While it’s no surprise that the majority of these individuals injured or killed from a motorcycle accident were males between 16-30 years of age, the amount of riders across all age groups has continued to increase which has led to more injuries and deaths due to motorcycle accidents across the board.

There are a few things both motorcycle and car drivers can do to help prevent motorcycle accidents and injuries:

  • Wear A Helmet
  • Don’t Tailgate
  • Don’t Drink & Drive
  • Wear Protective Clothing
  • Avoid Unsafe Speeds

Much like auto accidents, being involved in a motorcycle accident can lead to a list of serious injuries or become fatal, below are a list of losses that you may be able to recover if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages and Income
  • Physical Pain & Suffering
  • Physical Disability
  • Mental Distress
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Future Medical Expenses
  • Rehabilitation Expenses
  • Wrongful Death Damages
  • Property Damages
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life

As with any insurance claim it’s important that before you discuss any details from the motorcycle accident that you consult with a personal injury lawyer to protect your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation that you and your family deserves. Motorcycle accidents tend to be more serious and can be catastrophic due to the exposure of the rider without the protection that a car or truck will provide which often make them more complex and difficult to navigate. By hiring a personal injury lawyer you will be able to preserve your rights and pursue your claim to it’s fullest potential.
