Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents can be devastating, leaving the motorcyclists and their passengers with serious, life-changing or fatal results. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent driver, contact a Tampa motorcycle accident attorney at the Capaz Law Firm.

Common Injuries

Most motorcycle accidents results in some form of injury. Unlike other motor vehicles, motorcycles do not offer the protection of seatbelts, airbags, roofs and doors. When a negligent driver causes an accident, the motorcyclists can be ejected from their motorcycle and strike the ground or other objects causing a range of injuries including road rash, broken bones, leg injuries, nerve damage, disfigurement, internal bleeding, neck, back and spine injuries, skull fractures, traumatic brain injury, paralysis or death.

Even injuries that seem minor such as road rash can lead to infection or nerve damage. More serious injuries can require surgery, amputation, extended hospital stays, physical therapy or other long-term care.

Seeking Compensation

After an accident, an attorney can help you seek compensation for your injuries including the cost of past and future medical bills, lost and future wages, property damage, and pain and suffering, depending on the circumstances. In the event you lost a loved one in the accident, an attorney can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the deceased to seek compensation for your loss.
