Motorcyclists are more vulnerable and exposed than other motorists on the road, which is why many of these accidents often result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries.

We understand the difficulties survivors face in the aftermath of an accident and will provide the strong legal support you need to get through it.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Not all injuries in a motorcycle accident are life-altering, but that does not mean they are not severe or will not disrupt a victim’s life.
Below are some of the most common injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents:
- Spinal cord and back injuries: Spinal cord and back injuries can range in severity, leading to loss of sensation, fractures, or even partial or total paralysis.
- Broken bones: Even with the proper safety gear, motorcyclists can still suffer serious bone injuries in an accident. Broken bones and fractures often occur when a rider is hit by a vehicle or makes an impact with the ground.
- Traumatic brain injuries: Accounting for nearly 22% of all motorcycle accident injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), these types of injuries are among some of the most severe.
- Arm and leg injuries: In accidents where riders are thrown off their bike, arm and leg injuries are common.
What Does Compensation Cover?
Compensation for a motorcycle accident case covers many things. Ultimately, the amount you are awarded will depend on the severity of your accident.
Here is what compensation may cover:
- Medical expenses, including emergency room care, office visits, chiropractic care, physical therapy, and more
- Lost time from work and lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Wrongful death
In New York, punitive damages may also be awarded if the person responsible for the accident acted egregiously.
