Minor Motorcycle Injuries

In some accidents, an injured motorcyclist may get off with only minor bumps and bruises. Other minor injuries may include scraps and cuts resulting from the victim sliding on the roadway. Victims of these types of injuries are in fact lucky, possibly because the accident was not violent or intense or because they were well protected with a helmet and other riding gear. Unfortunately, it is common for motorcyclists to suffer much more serious injuries.

Moderate and Serious Motorcycle Injuries

Victims of Irvine motorcycles accidents commonly suffer moderate or serious injuries including broken bones and deep lacerations. Others sustain internal injuries that require immediate medical attention. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 30 percent of all injury accidents involving motorcycles result in trauma to the rider’s legs or feet. These types of injuries can take a long time to heal and, in many cases, the victim may never fully regain their strength or mobility. Sadly, the CDC also reports that about 22 percent of motorcycle injuries involve head or neck trauma, which is often even more serious than broken bone injuries.

When Motorcycle Injuries are Catastrophic

A catastrophic injury results in a decrease in the victim’s quality of life. They may have lost certain physical abilities or suffered a disability from which they may never fully recover. Many victims of injuries that are considered catastrophic may lose a substantial portion of their earning ability or they may even lose their ability to work completely. Injuries classified as catastrophic often involve a permanent disability such as an amputation, a devastating back injury that includes damage to the spinal cord or a head injury. While victims of spinal cord injuries may lose physical ability or feeling below the site of the trauma, head injury victims may also experience a loss in physical and mental abilities. In such cases, it is important that the victim, or the victim’s family, contact an experienced Irvine motorcycle accident lawyer who will help protect their legal rights and best interests.

Seeking Compensation

It is crucial that anyone suffering from a serious injury or disability contact a skilled Irvine motorcycle accident lawyer who can help determine liability and hold the at-fault party accountable for the crash. Victims of catastrophic injuries are often offered inadequate settlements that may cover a portion of their losses, but fail to cover future losses. A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer will consider all past and future medical bills, all lost wages and loss of earning capacity, the costs associated with rehabilitation services, surgical procedures and non-economic losses such as physical pain and mental anguish. It is important to work with an attorney because acceptance of an inadequate settlement could result in the victim being unable to pursue future compensation for the accident.
