Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

iStock_000005916968Medium-300x197It should come as no surprise that a motorcycle rider is prone to serious injury in the event of an accident. Smaller size and the lack of safety features compared to a regular passenger vehicle can lead to devastating consequences when a bike is involved in a collision. If you or a loved one sustained severe injuries in a motorcycle accident, Escondido lawyer Zev Rubinstein can pursue the compensation you deserve.

One of the most common injuries a motorcycle accident victim might sustain is road rash. Road rash occurs when skin makes contact with asphalt, resulting in a severe scrape that tears off skin and can even damage muscles, ligaments, and bone tissue beneath the skin.

Though road rash can be painful and require significant treatment and recovery, many other common motorcycle accident injuries are more severe. These include:

  • Brain damage
  • Spinal cord injury, including paralysis
  • Severe burns
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of limbs
  • Broken bones
  • Damage to soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, discs, etc.)

Mr. Rubinstein has more than 25 years of experience advocating for families in and around Escondido who have suffered injuries in motorcycle accidents. Victims are commonly eligible for damages such as medical expenses and lost wages. If the accident took the life of your loved one, a successful wrongful death claim could help offset the financial toll of such a tragedy.
