Injuries Common to Motorcycle Crash Victims

There is little to protect motorcyclists from the impact in a crash. This explains why we tend to see more serious injuries and even fatalities where a motorcycle is involved. And, it’s even more reason to ensure your settlement amount is fair and covers all your medical bills.

Common injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): A brain injury can have many serious side effects including seizures, memory loss, mood disturbances, sleep apnea, and trouble concentrating.
  • Road rash: When a rider skids along the paved surface of a road, the resulting rash can cause scarring, skin irritation, and in some cases, permanent nerve damage.
  • Broken bones: Arm bones are particularly vulnerable to breaks as many motorcyclists instinctively reach out to brace themselves during a collision.
  • If a motorcyclist comes in contact with the engine during a crash, they can sustain serious burns.
  • Spinal cord injuries: A primary concern of this type of injury is paralysis.
  • Emotional trauma: It’s important to acknowledge that a motorcycle crash can be a traumatic event. It’s not uncommon for victims to experience anxiety, nightmares, or flashbacks following a wreck. In some situations, victims might be clinically diagnosed with and treated for Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Any one of these injuries could require extensive recovery time and medical care to treat. Unfortunately, this also means motorcycle crash victims may face significant financial difficulties.

You May be Entitled to Compensation

If you’ve been a victim, you may be entitled to compensation. We recognize that a settlement isn’t going to make everything better. But what it can do is restore your financial situation and hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions.

In the State of Washington, you’re entitled to both economic and non-economic damages (RCW 4.56.250). Here’s a little more about each:

  • Economic damages cover tangible expenses like doctor and hospital bills, lost wages, and any other out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident.
  • Non-economic damages cover intangible expenses like pain, suffering, disfigurement, change in lifestyle, and impacts to your closest relationships.

One of our skilled attorneys can help determine your total economic and non-economic damages. This helps us understand the value of your claim so we can ensure you get a fair settlement.
