Motorcycle Accidents Can Equal Life Threatening Injuries


MotorcyclistAs your attorney is our job is to prosecute your injury case so that the insurance company will understand your condition so that you will get the maximum settlement. 

We know what goes through my mind of most riders and the bias that is on the street. Handling a lawsuit for a motorcyclist requires unique skills. We care about motorcycles, and those who ride them. And we think about that every time we get a call on a new case. We too have suffered personal family losses in the past, while on motorcycles. We understand motorcycle accident losses and we will work to make the responsible party pay your damages.


A motorcycle crash is a complex event involving the interaction of human, vehicle, and environmental factors. While there is no "typical" motorcycle accident, what is "typical" is that a motorcycle crash is a violent event.

More than 80 percent of all reported motorcycle accidents result in serious injury or death to the motorcyclist.

Why Motorcycle Accidents Result In More Injuries

  • The motorcycle itself provides no head injury protection to the rider or passenger.
  • Ejection from the motorcycle is a common injury pathway.
  • If a motorcycle comes to a sudden stop and the rider is ejected from the motorcycle, the rider will forcibly strike objects in the path as well as the ground.

Why Motorcycle Accidents Are More Serious & More Expensive

Motorcycle injuries are more expensive because they tend to be more serious and have much longer rehabilitation periods. For example, according to comprehensive insurance industry data shows that...

  • 23% of motorcycle claimants have injuries in multiple locations;
  • 18% suffer head injuries with permanent disability;
  • 10% of claimants have injuries to the back or spine. Some of these result in permanent paraplegia or quadriplegia.

This means that 50% of motorcycle accident claimants have the sort of life-threatening injuries from which some never recover.
