Motorcycle accidents often end in serious injury, simply due to the fact that riders are not afforded the same protection as a person in a passenger vehicle. Bikers are routinely thrown from their vehicle or struck by another vehicle during an accident. Unfortunately, most motorcycle accidents are not the fault of the motorcyclist.
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you will soon be approached by an insurance adjuster who appears to be on your side in this matter. They are not. The adjuster works for the insurance company that has to reimburse your medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, time away from work, and any pain and suffering. They will offer you as little as possible. Because of this, it is important that you reach out to an experienced attorney who can help you fight for the full, fair compensation you are owed.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
As previously mentioned, bikers are relatively unprotected. In the event of a collision with another vehicle, bikers tend to suffer far more severe injuries than the other motorists and passengers involved. These injuries often require extensive emergency medical attention, ongoing treatment, and can even lead to permanent disabilities. All of this, coupled with the time taken off work to receive treatment, can make motorcycle injuries extremely costly—not to mention physically and emotionally damaging.
Some of the most common types of motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Brain injuries
- Wrongful death
Following an accident, you are not required to give a written or verbal statement to the insurance adjustor. In fact, it is in your best interest to not give a statement. Protect your right to compensation by speaking to a personal injury lawyer at Torem & Associates.
Proving the Fault of the Other Driver
More often than not, a motorcycle accident is the fault of a person driving a passenger vehicle. Drivers simply are not always looking for a motorcycle when pulling into traffic or changing lanes; they are often looking for a large car or truck. Seeing no cars, they pull into the path of an unsuspecting motorcyclist. It is also not uncommon to find a car attempting a left turn in front of an oncoming motorcyclist, resulting in serious injuries to the rider.
