Some Things to Consider if You’re Injured on a Motorcycle 

Posted: September 28, 2022

Motorcycle drivers sometimes talk about the freedom they feel when riding on the open road. Unfortunately, when other motorists fail to follow the rules of the road, this sense of freedom—often resulting from a feeling of connection to the roadway environment—can result in serious personal injuries.  

Motorcycle Accident Injuries and Your Body 

Unlike a driver or passenger in a car, who is surrounded by a steel frame car body and air bag systems, a motorcycle operator generally has less protection from injury in the event of a crash. Even those who wear helmets and other protective gear can suffer serious injuries in a motorcycle accident, including:  

  • Broken bones  Falling or impacting while riding can easily break bones, especially if your bike lands on you. 
  • Road rash  Road rash from an accident can be  severe, potentially requiring surgery. 
  • Head and neck injuries  Even those who wear a helmet can seriously injure their head and neck. 
  • Internal injuries  Internal organs can be damaged as a result of the trauma.  

Under these circumstances, a motorcycle accident injury can be devastating.  

Use Caution with Insurance Companies

It is always important to remember that insurance companies are in business to make money. That means they have a different goal than you do. While you want to be compensated for pain and suffering and  financial losses, they want to pay as little to protect their bottom line. The attorneys at William Mattar, P.C. can help injured motorcyclists deal with insurance companies after a motorcycle accident.  If the insurance company refuses to negotiate in good faith following a motorcycle accident,  our attorneys can help you file a personal injury lawsuit to hold liable parties accountable for injuries, and help you receive maximum compensation.
