Randall, Page & Bruch, P.C. – Attorneys at Law

Emporia, Virginia Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Although the allure of a motorcycle can pull you to want to rush to get on the open road. There is something to consider, and that is that the roadways can be a hostile environment for motorcyclists. When you are riding a motorcycle it is always best to stay alert and aware of the cars surrounding you.

Even if you are aware of and follow all safety rules, you can still be involved in a motorcycle accident. This is often due to the negligence of others on the road. No matter the details of your accident you will need an Emporia motorcycle accident attorney to take a look at your case and determine the best route to take.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

An accident can happen at any moment and you may not even know what is happening until it is over. This confusion can often lead to liability and blame being placed on the wrong party. There are some common causes of car accidents we see such as:

  • Intersection accidents
  • Motorcycles making a left turn
  • Failure to yield to a motorcycle
  • Red light accidents
  • Construction and road hazard accidents
  • Failing to see a motorcycle

These are just a few examples of where motorcycle accidents happen. Our Emporia motorcycle accident attorney has the experience to handle cases just like these as well as other motorcycle accidents.

Injuries From Motorcycle Accidents

As you might imagine, the injuries associated with a motorcycle accident can often be life-altering. The fact is that motorcycles do not offer very much protection from the impact of a motor vehicle. You may experience some of the following injuries:

  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Road rash
  • Amputation
  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Paralysis
  • Internal organ damage

Treatment for these injuries can vary from person to person as well as injury. While some may recover within a few months, other injuries can take years to recover from and in some cases, there is no chance of a full recovery. Having to face these uncertain circumstances can leave accident victims wondering how they will pay for these treatments and how their life will look moving forward.
