Riding your bike on the open road can give you an unmatched sense of freedom, but sometimes that freedom can come at a high cost. A motorcycle accident can result in grave, life-threatening injuries. The experienced personal injury attorneys at Thomas, Conrad & Conrad will fight for your rights and work to ensure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages.
According to a 2015 report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an estimated 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in 2015. (Source: NHTSA) Motorcycle accidents can be caused by driver inattention, aggressive driving, poor roadway conditions, and other factors. Due to the lack of protection offered by a motorcycle, riders’ injuries are often severe and can even be fatal.
Common injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can include:
- Traumatic brain injury, fractured skull, and other head injuries, especially if the driver or rider is not wearing a helmet
- Neck & spinal injuries, which can cause paralysis
- Broken bones
- Lost limbs
- Serious road rash
- Internal organ injury
- Facial disfigurement
Obeying traffic laws and speed limits, staying aware of your surroundings, wearing a full-face helmet and choosing protective, reflective gear that makes you visible to other drivers can help you avoid accidents and stay safe on the road.
