Damages That Could Be Recovered in Motorcycle Accident Claim

After an accident, you may be able to receive financial assistance for the injuries you have suffered. If your injuries were sustained as a result of someone else’s negligent, reckless, or illegal behavior, you may be eligible.

When you work with an attorney from Jensen Law Group, we will determine if the other party was liable for your injuries and calculate the amount of damages.

Damages can be physical or emotional injuries, as well as losses due to:

  • Insurance costs
  • Medical bills
  • And loss of income

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Riding motorcycles, with its inherent thrill and sense of freedom, comes with its own set of risks. Understanding the common causes of motorcycle accidents is crucial for riders to enhance their safety on the road. Several factors contribute to the vulnerability of motorcyclists, making awareness and precautionary measures imperative.

  • Limited Visibility: Motorcycles' smaller profile makes them less visible, especially in blind spots. Inattentive drivers may overlook bikers during lane changes or turns.
  • Distracted Driving: In an era of constant connectivity, distracted driving is pervasive. Activities like texting divert attention, increasing the likelihood of overlooking motorcyclists.
  • Speeding: Excessive speed reduces reaction time and intensifies collisions. Misjudgment of motorcycle speeds by other drivers adds to the danger.
  • Riding Under the Influence: Alcohol and drugs impair judgment and coordination, jeopardizing the safety of the rider and others on the road.
  • Inexperienced Riders: Novice riders often lack the skills to handle unexpected situations, emphasizing the need for continuous education and training.
  •  Adverse Weather Conditions: Motorcyclists face increased vulnerability in adverse weather. Failure to adapt riding style to conditions can lead to accidents.
  • Road Hazards: Uneven surfaces and debris, minor for larger vehicles, pose significant risks for motorcyclists, necessitating vigilant maneuvering.

Common Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents 

Physical injuries commonly sustained in motorcycle accidents that could qualify you to pursue damages may include:

  • Head injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations and road rash
  • Brain injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Amputations

If it is determined that your injuries and losses make you eligible to file a personal injury claim, a trusted Chapel Hill motorcycle injury lawyer from our firm can help. Call today to get started.

Do You Have to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in North Carolina?

North Carolina has a universal helmet law that requires all riders, regardless of their age, to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle or moped. The helmet must comply with federal laws and have an official DOT sticker. Wearing a motorcycle helmet significantly reduces the risk of head and/or brain injuries in the event you are in an accident.
