Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents and Injuries
Motorcycles offer very little protection to riders. Therefore, motorcyclists can suffer serious injuries in relatively minor collisions with passenger vehicles. Drivers of passenger vehicles who drive recklessly or negligently, including driving while distracted, are among the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in New Jersey.
Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
- Drowsy driving;
- Aggressive driving;
- Failure to obey traffic signals;
- Faulty mechanical parts or systems;
- Inclement weather; and
- Dangerous roadway conditions.
Regardless of the cause of a motorcycle accident, the resulting injuries have potentially life-altering consequences. Motorcyclist accidents can result in any of the following:
- Road rash;
- Broken legs and lower extremities;
- Broken ribs;
- Internal organ damage;
- Head and spinal cord injuries;
- Brain damage;
- Paralysis; and
It is imperative to seek medical attention immediately following a motorcycle accident. Specific injuries, such as brain injuries, are not readily apparent and take a doctor to diagnose.
Compensation You Can Recover With an Accident Claim
Compensation in a motorcycle accident claim depends on the extent of a victim’s medical expenses, scope of their injuries, and prognosis for recovery. Any financial award needs to take both current and future accident-related costs into account.
Typically, motorcycle accident compensation includes the following:
- All accident-related medical expenses, both current and future;
- Psychological treatment;
- Physical rehabilitation;
- Lost wages;
- Loss of future income;
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of enjoyment of life;
- Loss of consortium; and
- Wrongful death
Along with the above expenses, you may require additional surgical procedures, home or vehicle modifications, or several other treatments or therapies. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S.
