Motorcycle injuries have the potential to cause serious injury to victims. Because a motorcycle does not offer its rider or any passengers any protection, people on a motorcycle may be thrown long distances or against other vehicles or objects in the event of an accident. Motorcycle accidents can occur for many reasons, but when they occur due to negligence, victims may be able to bring a Georgia personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party or parties. An attorney can help you determine whether you have a claim, as well as determine who is at fault for the accident. The lawyers of the Law Offices of Shane Smith are dedicated personal injury advocates who know how to get their clients the compensation they deserve.
Motorcycle accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, ranging from minor to severe. The best thing that a motorcyclist can do to prevent the risk of serious injury is to wear protective gear, especially a helmet. In addition, it is important for motorcyclists to drive with caution, and to make sure they follow the rules of the road. Some common kinds of injuries that may result from motorcycle accidents include:
- Head injuries
- Broken bones
- Serious fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
These are just some of the potential injuries a motorcycle accident victim may sustain. It is important for anyone who has been involved in a motorcycle accident to retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. In addition, you should see a medical professional immediately after the accident to make sure that your injuries are properly diagnosed. Some injuries may not manifest symptoms for days or even weeks after an accident. From a legal perspective, an immediate diagnosis makes it easier to prove that the accident caused the injury.
