Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Many motorcycle accident victims will suffer from serious injuries.
As a motorcycle rider, you should always take precautions when you’re on the road. Unfortunately, even when riders take precautions to avoid accidents and injuries, like wearing a motorcycle helmet and driving defensively, they can still become severely hurt because of someone else’s negligent driving.
Bikers are less likely to leave a vehicle accident scene without serious injuries than motorists in cars or truck drivers. Someone in a motor vehicle accident is protected by the car itself, but a biker has nothing between themselves and other vehicles or the road.
Some of the most common motorcycle crash injuries include the following:
- Muscle Damage
- Head Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Brain Damage
- Nerve Pain and Damage
- Road Rash
- Leg Injuries
- Biker’s Arm
- Broken Bones
- Soft Tissue Injuries
- Loss of Limbs
These injuries could be due to riding in blind spots, lane splitting, driving recklessly, and several other factors.

What You Should Do After a Motorcycle Crash
After a motorcycle accident, you have two options for securing a fair settlement for your injuries and other losses from the negligent party. You can file a personal injury claim or a personal injury lawsuit. It’s essential to understand the difference between the two.
Experienced motorcycle accident attorneys will help you file an insurance claim with your insurance provider and the at-fault driver in a personal injury claim. This will start an investigation by an insurance claims adjuster.
The claims adjuster will gather evidence, like the police report and witness testimony. When the investigation is complete, you and your motorcycle lawyers will start negotiations until the insurance company offers you fair compensation for your injuries, financial losses, and property damage. In exchange for accepting the settlement, you will sign a release agreeing to give up your right to sue the at-fault driver in court.
A personal injury claim against the negligent party is typically the first course of action after a motorcycle accident. If the settlement process breaks down and it appears you won’t receive maximum compensation for your medical care, you may have to file a personal injury lawsuit.
A motorcycle accident lawsuit is a civil legal action in which a person injured in a motorcycle collision makes a demand for compensation, usually with an experienced attorney. The demand for compensation will consider the severity of the injuries of the injured party and medical costs, and other losses suffered as a result of a severe accident.
A motorcycle accident lawsuit will typically settle before reaching trial. Still, some go to trial, and a judge or jury will decide the amount of money the injury victim is entitled to receive.
Tips For Motorcycle Riding Safety
Even when motorcycle riders take precautions while riding, injuries can still happen because of someone else’s negligent driving.
Therefore, it is always essential to follow these two safety tips when riding:
- Wear a helmet: Traumatic brain injuries are the number one cause of motorcycle accident injuries. Therefore, wearing a properly fitted helmet may be the difference between injury or wrongful death.
- Wear proper gear: When riding a motorcycle, it is vital to keep your skin protected in the unfortunate event that you are thrown from the bike and skid across the pavement. Even with the proper gear, severe skin damage and road rash can still occur.
Compensation For Motorcycle Accidents
The value of your motorcycle accident claim is important to you as a motorcycle accident victim. Whether you suffered a catastrophic injury such as a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury and the mental anguish that goes along with it, or a less severe injury like road rash, you deserve to know how much compensation you are entitled to.
The best way to receive an accurate answer is by speaking with an injury lawyer at The Brown Firm. Each motorcycle accident case is unique, so there is no average settlement value. Injured riders may need a lawyer to help identify, list, and calculate the damages in your claim for compensation against the negligent driver.
Things you can be compensated for are:
- Past and Future Medical Expenses
- Loss of Income
- Disability Costs
- Motorcycle Repairs
- Motorcycle Replacement
- Legal Fees and Out-of-Pocket Costs
- Rental Car Fees
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Damages
- Lost Quality of Life
- Punitive Damages
A motorcycle crash claim with catastrophic injuries will be worth more than a minor injury claim. Fatal motorcycle accidents that file a wrongful death lawsuit will be worth more than those resulting in catastrophic injury.
If your case settles, rather than going to trial, an insurance company will assess your medical bills and other tangible damages to evaluate their value. During negotiations, personal injury attorneys can help injured motorcycle riders maximize their financial recovery using their knowledge of motorcycle law.
