COMMON MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURIES
Injured in a motorcycle crash in Houston?
Bikers not only face an increased risk of severe injuries in motorcycle accidents, but according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) their risk of fatal injuries is 35 times greater than those in passenger vehicles in the event of a collision.
Although motorcycle accidents are sometimes the result of rider error, the most common causes of motorcycle accidents are passenger vehicle drivers who fail to notice and respond properly to the presence of motorcycles. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another driver’s carelessness, Houston personal injury attorney Tony Malley may be able to help you pursue financial compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
Due to their obvious lack of protections, motorcycle riders are especially vulnerable to the physical impact of a collision, and they are also prone to ejection and additional trauma from secondary contact with the ground or other objects. Among the severe injuries common in motorcycle accidents are:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss-of-limb and amputation injuries
- Burn injuries
Sadly, the injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents often prove fatal to riders. If you lost a family member in a motorcycle accident that was the result of another driver’s negligence, Mr. Malley may be able to help you and other surviving family members seek financial peace of mind by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
