Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

In most cases, motorcycle accident injuries tend to be more serious than those sustained during a car accident. They can range from cuts and scrapes to serious brain injuries, and in worst cases, even death. The extent of the injuries plays a part in the compensation that the injured party can receive. 

The most common injuries include:

  • Road rash (more than just scrapes and may be accompanied by nerve damage)
  • Burns
  • Broken bones
  • Facial trauma and disfigurement
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Head trauma

Unfortunately, limb amputation may be necessary and other serious, life-altering injuries can occur. 

Compensation Available to Motorcycle Accident Victims

Being injured in a motorcycle accident can lead to life-altering changes for both the victim and their family. Many people are left with permanent health problems or disfigurements. The law allows injured parties to claim monetary compensation for their injuries. This helps ease the burden of medical bills and other consequences of the motorcycle accident.

Common compensation factors include:

  • Medical bills
  • Physical therapy bills
  • Lost wages/time off work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Motorcycle repair bills

Keep in mind that motorcycle passengers who are injured are also eligible for compensation, even if they bring the suit against the driver of their own motorcycle. Some passengers are reluctant to do this because the driver is a friend or family member, but remember that the insurance company is responsible for paying the claim. That is what insurance is for.

What to Do if You Have Been Injured in a Motorcycle Accident

Following a motorcycle accident, it is important that you put your health and safety first. After a motorcycle accident has taken place, take the steps below:

  1. Seek immediate medical treatment for your injury. Keep all medical expenses well documented. 
  2. Contact the experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at The Law Offices of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, P.A. to advise you of your rights and start fighting for the compensation that you deserve. 

Make sure to keep detailed documentation when it comes to insurance claims, medical bills/diagnosis and any other records that may apply. This will help when it comes to your claim and lawsuit. 

Why You Need a Miami Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Just because you are entitled to compensation for your injuries does not mean the insurance company of the responsible party will happily pay the claim. Additionally, in cases where the fault is not clear or may be shared between two parties, things can get tricky. 

Insurance companies will do anything they can to make sure they do not award you compensation, and if they do, they will try to pay as little as possible. That is why it is extremely beneficial to hire a qualified Miami motorcycle accident lawyer. The skilled attorneys at The Law Offices of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, P.A. know what it takes to win a motorcycle accident claim and get you the maximum compensation available. 

While you focus on your health, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Gillis, Mermell & Pacheco, P.A. will focus on your case and beating the insurance agencies.
