Do I Need an Attorney If I’ve Been Involved in a Motorcycle Accident?

When involved in a motorcycle accident, one can face a myriad of challenges. These may include overwhelming medical bills, lost wages due to inability to work, and potential long-term physical and emotional trauma. Additionally, navigating the complex legal terrain and dealing with insurance companies can be daunting tasks.

Insurance companies, in their bid to minimize payouts, might undervalue your claim or deny it altogether. Consequently, you might end up receiving less compensation than you deserve, or worse still, none at all.

Hiring an experienced attorney when involved in a motorcycle accident offers several advantages:

  • Vast knowledge and experience. A seasoned attorney has the requisite knowledge and experience to navigate the legalities of motorcycle accident claims. They can advise on potential compensation based on the specifics of your case, ensuring you have a clear understanding of what to expect.
  • Skillful negotiation of settlements. An experienced attorney has honed negotiation skills that can be used to your advantage when discussing settlements. They will fight to ensure you get the maximum compensation possible for your injuries.
  • Communication with insurance companies and medical professionals. Navigating through insurance company procedures can be overwhelming for many, particularly while recovering from an incident. An attorney can alleviate this stress by liaising with the insurance companies on your behalf. They also liaise with medical professionals to ensure they provide comprehensive proof of your injuries, which is crucial in strengthening your claim.

Can You Get PTSD from a Motorcycle Accident?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological disorder that occurs as a result of experiencing or witnessing a deeply distressing or shocking event. It can lead to symptoms such as recurring nightmares, intense flashbacks, heightened anxiety, and persistent intrusive thoughts related to the traumatic incident. These symptoms can be persistent and severe enough to interfere with an individual's daily activities.

PTSD is frequently linked to military personnel coming back from warfare or individuals who have experienced violent crimes. However, it's important to understand that trauma can occur in many different situations, and motorcycle accidents are no exception.

Motorcycle accidents, given their sudden and violent nature, can certainly qualify as such terrifying events. The psychological impact of these accidents can sometimes be as severe, if not more so, than the physical injuries incurred.

Victims of motorcycle accidents who develop PTSD may be entitled to recover noneconomic damages in a personal injury lawsuit. Noneconomic damages are awarded to compensate the victim for intangible losses such as mental anguish, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

Common Physical Injuries Sustained in Motorcycle Accidents

Accidents involving motorcycles can lead to an array of bodily harm, ranging from minor abrasions to critical conditions. The extent of these injuries is often influenced by several factors, such as the type of collision, the speed during impact, the use of a helmet or safety equipment by the rider, and the promptness of medical attention.

Here is a comprehensive list of common physical injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents:

  • Road rash. This is a skin abrasion that occurs when a rider slides across the road surface after a fall. It's not just superficial cuts and bruises; severe cases can lead to skin irritations, infections, and even permanent damage to the skin and nerve tissues.
  • Broken or fractured bones. These are common in motorcycle accidents due to the force of impact during a crash. They often occur in the arms and legs but can also affect the ribs, collarbone, and pelvis.
  • Foot and leg injuries. These can range from minor bruises and cuts to serious fractures and dislocations. In some cases, the injury may be so severe that amputation is necessary.
  • Head and neck injuries. These are among the most serious and potentially fatal injuries, such as concussions, skull fractures, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Riders who don't wear helmets are particularly vulnerable to these types of injuries.
  • Spinal injuries. Damage to the spinal cord can lead to partial or complete paralysis. This can occur if the rider is thrown off the bike and lands on their back or neck.
  • Abdominal injuries. These can involve damage to internal organs like the liver, kidneys, or spleen, often caused by the handlebars of the motorcycle during a high-impact collision.
  • Facial injuries. These can include broken noses, jawbones, and teeth, particularly in riders who do not wear full-face helmets.
  • Chest injuries. These can range from bruises to broken ribs and severe lung injuries. High-speed collisions and accidents where the rider is thrown from the bike commonly result in these injuries.
