Fighting For Those Who Have Been Injured in Motorcycle Accidents in North Carolina

Motorcyclists face various disadvantages and challenges on the road: They are often overlooked by other drivers, are sometimes easy to miss because of their smaller size, and cannot benefit from traditional cabin safety features (such as seatbelts, airbags, etc.). Because of these disadvantages, motorcyclists are often exposed to severe injuries when a collision occurs. When the driver of another vehicle is at fault in these cases, motorcycle accident victims often have to fight to receive the relief they deserve.

At Kornbluth Ginsberg Law Group, P.A., we are well aware of the difficulties and stigmas that motorcyclists face in the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident that wasn't their fault. Motorcycle drivers are often wrongly blamed for these accidents just because of the fact they were on a motorcycle at the time that they occurred. Our dedicated and aggressive Durham motorcycle accident lawyers know how to assert the facts in these cases and ensure that fault is properly assigned to the negligent parties.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents often lead to severe and life-altering injuries, given the minimal protection motorcycles offer. Among the common injuries are:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): The absence of a protective enclosure puts motorcyclists at a heightened risk of head injuries, resulting in long-term cognitive challenges or permanent disability.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Impact force from an accident may cause spinal cord injuries, resulting in paralysis or other debilitating conditions.
  • Broken Bones and Fractures: The collision's force can propel riders off their motorcycles, resulting in fractures and broken bones necessitating extensive medical treatment.
  • Road Rash: Gliding on the pavement can cause painful abrasions, known as road rash, potentially leading to infections and scarring.
  • Internal Injuries: Blunt force trauma can cause internal injuries, which may not manifest immediately but can be life-threatening.

What Damages Could be Recovered in a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

In the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, comprehending the potential recoverable damages is vital. Potential damages that could be recovered may include:

  • Medical Expenses: Reimbursement for present and future medical expenses stemming from the accident, including hospitalization, surgeries, rehabilitation, and ongoing medical care.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for income lost because of the inability to work during the recovery period, as well as potential future loss of earning capacity.
  • Pain and Suffering: Damages for the physical and emotional pain endured due to the accident, encompassing mental anguish, loss of pleasure of life, and other non-economic losses.
  • Property Damage: Recovery for the restoration or replacement of your motorcycle, along with compensation for any other personal property damaged in the accident.
  • Wrongful Death Damages: In cases of tragic loss, we can help you pursue wrongful death damages, covering funeral expenses and compensation for the emotional and financial effects on surviving family members.
