Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Too often, motorcycle accident claims are undervalued. Liability is often wrongly placed on a rider’s shoulders when it actually lies with a distracted driver, drunk driver, or hazardous road. When you work with a Washington, DC, motorcycle accident lawyer at our firm, we will investigate your case until we know it better than anyone. We will determine what caused your accident and who is liable. We will not stop until we have reached the best outcome possible.

Our team deals with motorcycle accidents caused by:

  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Traffic violations
  • Failure to yield to a motorcycle
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Unsafe or illegal right turns
  • Drunk driving
  • Defective motorcycle parts
  • Dangerous or poorly maintained roadways

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Some of the most common injuries include the following:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): Even with a helmet, motorcyclists are at high risk for head injuries. TBIs can range from mild concussions to severe brain damage, leading to long-term cognitive impairments, memory loss, and personality changes.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Damages to the spinal cord may result in partial or full paralysis. The result of such injuries extends beyond physical limitations, affecting the victim's ability to work, independence, and overall quality of life.
  • Fractures and Broken Bones: Motorcycle accidents frequently cause fractures, particularly in the arms, legs, and pelvis. These injuries can demand multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation, often leading to significant medical expenses and prolonged periods of disability.
  • Road Rash: When a motorcyclist is thrown from their bike, they can suffer severe abrasions known as road rash. This injury can range from mild scrapes to severe skin damage that requires surgical intervention and leaves permanent scars.
  • Internal Injuries: The power of a collision can cause internal injuries to organs like the liver, kidneys, and spleen. These injuries could not be instantly noticeable but can be life-threatening if not promptly treated.
  • Psychological Trauma: The aftermath of a motorcycle accident can also include psychological trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. These conditions can significantly impact a victim's daily life and require professional treatment.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

The possible damages that could be recovered include:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for medical expenses covers the cost of emergency care, hospital stays, surgeries, medications, physical therapy, and any future medical needs related to the accident.
  • Lost Wages: If the accident results in the victim being incapable to work, they could be qualified to compensation for lost wages. This includes not only the earnings lost during the recovery period but also any future earning capability if the injuries lead to long-term or permanent disability.
  • Pain and Suffering: Pain and suffering damages compensate victims for the physical pain and emotional misery caused by the accident. This can include chronic pain, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and the effect on personal relationships.
  • Property Damage: Motorcycle accidents often significantly damage the bike and other personal property. Victims can seek compensation for the cost of restoring or replacing their motorcycle and any other damaged property.
  • Loss of Consortium: In cases where the victim's injuries profoundly affect their relationships, particularly with their spouse, compensation may be granted for loss of consortium. This covers the loss of companionship, emotional support, and intimacy.
  • Punitive Damages: In certain cases where the defendant's conduct was particularly reckless or egregious, punitive damages could be granted. These damages are intended to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar behavior in the future.
