Any type of motor vehicle comes with the risk of accidents and injuries. Some motor vehicles are more dangerous than others, however. People who choose to travel by motorcycle do put themselves at risk of greater injury in the event of an accident. However, this does not disallow motorcyclists from receiving compensation from any drivers or other negligent parties that caused their accidents. Negligent parties should be held liable for any medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more that a motorcyclist suffered in a collision. If you have suffered injury, call an experienced Coweta County auto accident lawyer for assistance with a possible case as soon as possible.

One of the most costly results of a motorcycle accidents are the medical bills incurred due to serious injuries. Because they do not have the body of a car to protect them in a collision, motorcyclists often suffer greater injuries than motorists in cars or SUVs. Examples of common injuries sustained by motorcyclists include:

  • Brain bleeding
  • Brain damage
  • Head and skull trauma
  • Broken back
  • Damaged spinal cord
  • Internal organ damage
  • Coma
  • Broken ribs or other bones
  • Shattered bones
  • Crushed limbs, often needing amputation
  • Road rash or similar burns
  • Lacerations
  • Internal bleeding
  • Severe bruising

Some of the above injuries may lead to extensive medical care, surgery, lengthy hospital stays, years of rehabilitation, permanent disfigurement or disability, and more.
