At Stanley Law Offices, we understand that a motorcycle accident can change a victim’s life in the blink of an eye and have devastating physical, emotional and financial consequences. If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, an experienced personal injury attorney can help you recover compensation for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 4,976 motorcyclists were killed and an estimated 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in motor vehicle accidents in 2015. Due to of the lack of protection and a motorcycle’s smaller size, riders often sustain much more severe injuries than drivers or passengers of other types of motor vehicles. It is vital to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle, because riders with helmets usually have a significant reduction in serious head injuries.
Motorcycle accidents can result in:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Head injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Severe road rash
- Road burn injury
