Types of 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.
