According to the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 80% of all such crashes result in injuries to the motorcyclist.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has studied injury patterns to over a million people who were hurt in motorcycle crashes, determining these as some of the more common injuries:
1/3 of all injuries were suffered to the leg and foot involving fractures and cartilage damage.
Head and neck injuries made up about 22% of all injuries like traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, and facial fractures.
Another 22% involved chest, shoulder, and back injuries involving damage to major organs, fractures, dislocations, and spinal damage.
Any of these injuries can have traumatic long-lasting effects, from brain damage, paralysis, and disfigurement, to other permanent disabilities.
If you’ve been a victim of a motorcycle accident, we’ll do everything in our power to get you the settlement you deserve.
Motorcycle riders often face bias and prejudice that other drivers don’t have to deal with. Our motorcycle accident lawyers are aware of these common biases that could affect your case–and they know how to help overcome them. Common arguments from those at fault include:
Motorcycles are difficult to see
They drive at excessive speeds
Motorcyclists are irresponsible
It’s also well-known that motorcycles offer less protection than cars and trucks, so the likelihood of severe injuries and fatalities in motorcycle accidents increases dramatically. If you’ve been severely injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, The Mike Hostilo Law Firm will fight for you.
