Injuries Suffered by Motorcycle Riders in Accidents

Their exposed position on their vehicles makes motorcyclists four times likelier to be injured in a collision than passenger vehicle occupants. Some of the types of injuries that can occur in a motorcycle accident include:

  • Severe lacerations
  • Abrasions/road rash
  • Degloving injuries
  • Burns
  • Crush injuries
  • Dislocated joints
  • Ligament sprains/tears
  • Muscle or tendon strains/tears
  • Broken bones
  • Herniated spinal disc injuries
  • Internal injuries and bleeding
  • Facial injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputation/limb loss

What Makes Motorcycle Accident Claims Challenging?

Sadly, motorcyclists often struggle to get the full value of their claims, even when other parties are clearly to blame. Here are some of the things that can make motorcycle accident claims challenging:

  • Motorcycle accidents tend to cause severe injuries: Motorcycle riders often suffer particularly severe injuries when they’re in collisions, which can increase the amount of compensation they need and deserve. At the same time, insurance companies fight claims harder when more money is at stake.
  • At-fault drivers may have insufficient liability coverage: Drivers who carry only the state-mandated minimum insurance coverage may not have the means to sufficiently compensate the motorcyclists they injure. As a result, riders may need to explore alternatives to get the financial resources they need.
  • Drivers and insurers deploy negative biases to shift blame onto riders: Insurers sometimes try to shift blame for a motorcycle accident onto a rider by relying on tired stereotypes of bikers as “outlaws” or “renegades” who ride recklessly. This may require riders to obtain more evidence to establish the other driver’s fault conclusively.

How Do You Prove Fault in a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

You will likely need considerable evidence to show how the motorcycle accident happened and identify the party or parties at fault, including:

  • Police crash reports or arrest/citation records
  • Accident scene photos/videos
  • Eyewitness statements
  • Surveillance/traffic camera footage
  • Dashcam/helmet cam footage
  • Driver cell phone records
  • Vehicle maintenance records
  • Post-accident vehicle inspection
  • Accident reconstruction expert testimony/reports

Financial Recovery Available After a Motorcycle Accident

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you could be entitled to compensation for the following:

  • Property damage
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

In addition, if your family has lost a loved one in a fatal accident, you may have the right to seek compensation for:

  • The full value of your loved one’s life, including lost wages, benefits, services, companionship, care, and counsel
  • Medical expenses incurred to treat your loved one’s fatal injuries
  • Funeral and burial expenses

Don’t Delay – Speak to a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Serving Johns Creek Today

Under Georgia’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims, you typically have two years after a motorcycle accident to file a lawsuit against the party responsible for the crash. Courts strictly enforce this deadline, so if you file your lawsuit after the limitations period expires on your claim, you may lose the right to recover compensation for your injuries and losses.

Don’t put your right to recovery at risk. If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle accident in Johns Creek, get the legal help you need to demand compensation for your injuries and losses.
