Brandon Motorcycle Accident Attorney

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles indicates that there were 9,384 motorcycle crashes reported by law enforcement agencies during 2012. Many motorcycle enthusiasts are attracted to Florida, as our famously moderate climate allows riders to ride year-round in the vast majority of the state. Additionally, Florida’s more than 8,000 miles of coastline make for extremely scenic routes that are ideal for recreational motorcyclists. The unfortunate reality is that thousands of motorcycle riders in Florida will be involved in an accident each year, sometimes sustaining extremely serious injuries that may leave them with long-term medical complications. Fortunately, in many cases, victims of Florida motorcycle accidents will be able to recover by filing a personal injury claim against the person or party responsible for their injury. Contact our Brandon motorcycle accident attorneys for more information.

Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries

Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable motorists on the road. In addition to being much more difficult for other drivers to spot simply due to their smaller size, they also do not have the protection of a vehicle body that is offered by other types of vehicles. As a result, when motorcyclists are involved in accidents, the injuries they sustain are often extremely serious. In many cases, these injuries may result in significant medical expenses and lost income due to being unable to work. Some of the injuries more commonly sustained in Brandon motorcycle accidents include the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries –Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, often occur after serious motorcycle accidents, particularly when a rider is thrown from his or her motorcycle. They can occur when a blow or jolt to a person’s head injures the brain in such a way as to result in a disruption with normal brain function. While some less serious TBIs are self-resolving and do not require significant medical intervention, they can also be extremely serious and leave victims with long-term cognitive issues.
  • Spinal cord injuries – Spinal cord injuries, or SCIs, involve damage to the spinal cord. Because the spinal cord is responsible for allowing the brain to communicate with the rest of the body, they can have significant consequences, including complete loss of feeling and paralysis below the site of the injury. Even in less serious cases, victims may struggle to engage in everyday tasks that were routine prior to sustaining an SCI.
  • Fractures – The immense forces involved in many motorcycle accidents can easily result in broken bones, known medically as bone fractures. These injuries can be extremely painful and require significant and expensive medical treatment. Additionally, some broken bones may leave victims with significant scarring and disfigurement that may have a serious impact on their emotional and psychological well-being.
