Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Grand Rapids Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcyclists have a much greater risk of serious injury or death when involved in an accident. A motorcycle has virtually none of the safety features of a car, truck or SUV such as a protective frame, seatbelts or airbags to protect them from serious injuries except their helmet and their clothing. Impact with another vehicle or being thrown off a bike at high speed can result in very serious and often life-threatening injuries or death. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by the negligence of another you should speak to a Grand Rapids motorcycle accident lawyer at Michigan Biker Law.

We understand motorcycles and motorcycle enthusiasts because we also ride. Our firm specializes in and handles only motorcycle accidents and helping those who have been injured while riding. We understand the challenges faced by cyclists who are involved in an accident caused by another driver's negligence. Even insurance companies lawyers often treat a motorcycle driver as being at least "partially" responsible for their injuries and damages due to their size and maneuverability.

Serious Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents

Being sideswiped or run off the road when another driver suddenly changes lanes or makes an unexpected exit can result in broken bones, brain injury and other severe trauma. Being thrown from a bike or colliding with another larger vehicle can cause such injuries as:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury - severe impact to the skull can cause brain damage
  • Spinal Cord Injury - damage to the spinal column can cause organ and nerve damage
  • Road Rash - being thrown to the road at speed can cause severe skin laceration and scarring
  • Paralysis - damage to the brain, neck or spine can result in partial or total paralysis

All of these types of injuries require immediate emergency care and often need lengthy recovery time with ongoing treatment and rehabilitative care. The medical bills for such injuries can be very high and you deserve to get the maximum possible settlement possible. We are dedicated to helping you seek a settlement that pays for your medical bills as well as your damages and pain and suffering. Call us today for a free consultation about your accident.
