Typical injuries caused by motorcycle accidents

Dallas motorcyclists who ride in bad weather will likely be cautious when they take to the roads. Bikers do not have any of the various types of protection that drivers of automobiles have, and in motorcycle accidents that involve other vehicles, motorcycle riders are typically worse off. In most cases, there is nothing more than a helmet and a leather riding suit between a biker and the road surface.

With motorcycles having only two wheels and unable to stand without support, riders often suffer leg fractures in accidents because they invariably land with one leg underneath the bike as it falls over. Other common fractures suffered in Texas motorcycle accidents include wrist, arm, shoulder and pelvis damage. Many of the fatalities and disabilities resulting from bike crashes involve traumatic brain injuries. Although helmets can prevent penetration injuries to the head, they do little to prevent whiplash. 

Road rash is another problem for motorcyclists. It is classified in three degrees of severity. First-degree refers to abrasions that cause no more than a redness while second-degree road rash involves broken outer skin layers without harm to the inner layers. The most severe, third-degree road rash needs emergency medical attention because the inner layers of fat and tissue are exposed.

Riders in Dallas who are suffering the consequences of motorcycle accidents that were caused by the negligence of other parties might be entitled to pursue financial relief through the civil justice system of Texas. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide the necessary support and guidance throughout the legal proceedings. A successfully presented lawsuit can result in recovery of economic and noneconomic damages.

  • Great Lawyer For A Reasonable Price

    Mr. Hulett was a very competent and effective lawyer for me in my custody case. Not only did we get the desired result but he did it for less than half of what my ex paid to her attorney on the same matter.
