The majority of Las Vegas motorcycle injuries are painful, gruesome, and life-changing. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you need all the help possible.
The assistance of a seasoned personal injury attorney will prove invaluable as you attempt to recover from your injuries. The legal team at Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys will fiercely advocate on your behalf in and out of court to make you whole again.
Common Motorcycle Injuries
Motorcycle injuries tend to be egregiously painful because riders have minimal protection, do not wear a seatbelt, and are at the mercy of fellow drivers on the road. These injuries can be devastating. From road rash to burns, broken bones, paralysis, brain trauma, and beyond, this type of violent accident can ruin your body for years to come.
Head and Neck Injuries
Head injuries are especially problematic because the brain is crucial for everyday bodily functions. If the brain swells beyond the skull’s barrier after an accident, it will be difficult to live life without the assistance of a caretaker. Even a concussion suffered during a motorcycle accident can change your life forever. In fact, some concussions prove fatal.
Spinal Cord Injuries
The back is fully exposed when riding and falling off a motorcycle. Unlike the head that is usually protected with a helmet, the back is left completely vulnerable. If your spinal cord is damaged, you will likely be saddled with a permanent injury that significantly reduces your quality of life.
If you are partially or completely paralyzed, you will need assistance from a caretaker. Your medical bills will most likely pile up, you may not be able to work, and you might even lose your home. Our personal injury attorneys are here to obtain the compensation you deserve following this unfortunate accident.
Road rash does not sound as harsh as the injuries detailed above, yet it is quite painful and can also be severe. This is an injury endured when a motorcycle rider slides across the pavement after colliding with another vehicle or object and falling off his or her chopper.
Sliding against the concrete proves to be quite harsh on the skin. Road rash really can scrape away several layers of skin and clothing, including protective motorcycle gear. If egregious enough, the victim can suffer permanent damage in the form of nerve damage, infection, and/or skin disfigurement.
Always wear long pants, long sleeves, and a jacket when riding to minimize the potential impact of road rash in the event of an injury. Additional protective gear such as gloves, knee pads, and leather garments will help mitigate road rash.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the body parts most commonly injured during motorcycle accidents are the legs and feet. About one-third of all motorcycle injuries that did not cause death caused damage to the lower limbs. Biker’s arm is one of these injuries.
Biker’s arm manifests after the accident’s initial impact. Riders often fly several feet in the air following impact with another vehicle or structure. Most riders instinctively move their arms in front of their body to brace for impact. Permanent nerve damage can result in the arm, as well as the rest of the body, if the majority of the force from the accident is absorbed by said body part.
Contact with the road, another vehicle, or any other structure amidst a motorcycle accident has the potential to fracture just about every bone in the body. If you fracture a limb, you will have to wear a cast so the injured bone is immobilized for healing. It could be quite difficult to earn a living, perform household chores, play with your kids, and enjoy life if you fracture a limb or any other bone during a motorcycle accident.
How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help
The period of time after your motorcycle accident should be spent recuperating. All too often, victims spend that time dealing with insurance companies and pursuing compensation by themselves. Let our personal injury attorneys navigate the complex legal maze while you rebuild your body and mind.
Even if you are partially at fault for the accident, it still might be possible to obtain compensation. Slight negligence (the lack of due care) on behalf of other parties really can result in considerable financial compensation. This is the money you need to cover your lost wages, medical expenses, pain, and other related trauma and costs.
Further, our legal team will pursue civil litigation on your behalf against all negligent parties who contributed to the accident. Potential negligent parties could range from fellow motorists to the motorcycle manufacturer, local government, and beyond. We will also sort out all the insurance issues, gather evidence, and fiercely advocate for justice. Our experienced personal injury attorneys know exactly how to build a strong and persuasive legal argument to prove the negligence of another party.
The bottom line is you deserve compensation for your pain and subsequent losses. If you suspect another party’s carelessness even partially contributed to the accident, we will craft a convincing legal argument to obtain considerable financial compensation.
