Motorcyclists Are at a High Risk of Severe Injuries
Cars and trucks have protective metal structures that absorb some of the collision’s impact. These vehicles have other additional safety features, such as airbags and seatbelts, to protect their users during a crash.
Motorcycles, on the other hand, lack these safety features. Bikers rely on protective gear alone. Some collisions will result in severe injuries to motorcyclists despite outfitting themselves in the protective gears. Motorcycle accident injuries can be severe, even life-threatening.
Some examples of motorcycle injuries include the following:
Road rash occurs when the impact of a collision forces the motorcyclist to skid across the road. The fall can cause the skin to tear, which is extremely painful. Road rash may result in scarring, leaving the motorist vulnerable to infections.
Dental and Facial Injuries
Hitting your face on the ground after an accident may lead to breaking of a facial bone, eye injuries, or/and dental injuries.
In severe crashes, the motorcycle wreck ends up amputating one or many of the motorcyclist’s limbs.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Motorcyclists may suffer from traumatic brain injuries or concussions when they hit their heads in an accident. The long-term effects of brain injuries depend on which part of the brain was affected and the intensity of the hit.

Negligence Can Lead to Motorcycle Accidents
Driver negligence includes a variety of failures that can cause motorcycle accidents. Any violation of traffic laws, such as speeding or failing to yield the right of way, can cause a motorist to collide with a motorcyle.
Motorcyclists are likely to be victims of an accident resulting from motor vehicles making left turns. Often, motorists take the left-turn spot motorcyclists on their path when it is too late. Motorcycle accidents also result from a head-on collision with other motorists trying to overtake vehicles on their lane.
A West Little River motorcycle accident lawyer can determine if parties other than the road users are responsible for a motorcycle accident. For example, we may determine that a motorcycle manufacturer is liable for an accident if defective auto parts caused or contributed to the collision. A government entitiy may also be liable if a motorcycle accident results from faulty road construction and/or design.
You need to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party after the accident. You will need to base your case on the theory of negligence to succeed.
To secure compensation, you must prove that:
- The defendant had a duty of care to you.
- The defendant knowingly breached the duty of care.
- There is a direct relationship between your injuries and the defendant’s breach of duty to care.
- You sustained injuries as a result of the defendant’s breach of duty to care.
Our legal team can gather evidence of another driver’s negligence to demonstrate their liability.
The Evidence You Need for Your Case
Proving liability in a motorcycle accident case is an intricate process. Witness testimonies and CCTV footage of the accident may go a long way in establishing who caused the accident. A police report may also support your case for compensation.
The medical records of your injuries can also help connect your losses to your accident. These records will show the extent of the injuries and the amount you have spent treating them. Such information will come in handy when determining what fair compensation looks like.
Make Sure You Follow Through With Your Treatment Plan
Aside from diagnosing your injuries, a doctor can also prescribe a treatment plan. Make sure you follow through with it and make your appointments. You do not want an insurer to claim you contributed to your losses by forgoing medical treatment.
