There may be no other type of accident that leaves a victim more vulnerable to serious injuries than a motorcycle accident. Motorcycle riders do not have the protection that motorists in vehicles do. In an accident, the rider absorbs 100 percent of the impact. The injuries in an accident between a motorcycle and another vehicle can be catastrophic, and many have proven to be fatal.
When motorcycle riders are injured in accidents that occur because of another driver's negligence, they have the right to be fully compensated for their medical care, loss of income and any other losses they suffer as a result. From offices in Brownsville, McAllen, San Antonio and Laredo, the attorneys at The Begum Law Group represent bikers who have been injured in accidents.
Seeking Compensation For The Most Severe Motorcycle Accident Injuries
We understand the types of injuries that can happen in motorcycle accidents, and we know what type of compensation is typically needed to accommodate the victim's recovery. You can rely on us to pursue every possible option in an effort to secure the best possible outcome on your behalf.
Brain injuries in motorcycle accidents can involve severe trauma if the rider's head makes hard contact with the other driver's vehicle or the road. These injuries can lead to a variety of complications, including memory loss, trouble with motor skills and other issues. The most extreme brain injuries can be fatal.
Neck injuries can happen in conjunction with or separate from a brain injury, and are typically associated with a substantial and sudden impact to the head. The rider's choice of whether or not to wear a helmet often has little to do with the severity of a neck injury. These injuries can result in broken vertebrae and damage to the spinal cord.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Particularly in a motorcycle crash, an injury to the spine is almost always substantial. Even in relatively minor incidents, the victim can suffer numbness in the extremities and loss of grip strength. In severe cases, spinal cord injuries can result in partial or complete paralysis.
