Los Angeles Motorcycle Accident Injuries Attorney

Catastrophic Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Crashes

Motorcyclists are far more vulnerable to serious injuries than motorists using other forms of transportation like cars, trucks, and SUVs. Without the protection of a metal chassis, seatbelt, and airbags, a motorcyclist can be permanently injured in even a relatively slow-speed crash. If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident, contact Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, a Los Angeles-based law firm with extensive experience representing injured motorcyclists. The firm has seen all sorts of injury claims from motorcyclists involved in serious accidents caused by other negligent parties.

Motorcycle accidents frequently lead to catastrophic injuries, such as:

  • Amputations: Severe damage to an arm, hand, leg, or foot might require it to be medically amputated later. Advanced prosthetics can help recover some lost mobility and dexterity after an amputation, but the consequences of the injury will always be permanent and life-changing.
  • Brain damage: Motorcycle helmets are crucial for reducing the risk of head injury in a motorcycle accident. But these pieces of safety equipment can only do so much. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are still inordinately common in this type of collision.
  • Fractures and broken bones: In an average motorcycle accident, the rider will be thrown completely off their bike and into the street. The impacts from landing and then tumbling can cause multiple bone fractures, which might result in permanent disabilities if they don’t heal correctly.
  • Knee/joint injuries and torn ligaments: Joints and ligaments are among the most vulnerable parts of the human body. In a wreck, they can be severely damaged and require specialized treatments to heal, such as surgeries and rehabilitative therapy.
  • Neck and back injuries: Harm to the neck or back can instantly cause a life-changing injury. What might feel like a dull ache at first can gradually worsen to debilitating pain. If you think your neck or back was hurt in a motorcycle accident, then you should see a doctor immediately.
  • Paralysis: When the spinal cord is severed, it can cause paralysis. The body parts affected by paralysis depend on where the damage to the spine occurred. Paralysis of the legs is called paraplegia, and paralysis of all four limbs is called quadriplegia or tetraplegia.
  • Road rash: Road rash is a severe injury that is suffered almost exclusively by motorcyclists. It occurs when a motorcyclist skids across the asphalt, which destroys their skin and underlying tissues. Untreated, severe road rash can lead to fatal infections.
  • Scars/disfigurement: A severe injury can cause permanent scarring or disfigurement. If scarring is in a noticeable area like the face, neck, or hands, then it can be considered a catastrophic injury, especially if the motorcycle accident survivor feels self-conscious about their altered appearance.
  • Shoulder injuries: Falling off a motorcycle and onto your shoulder could cause it to break or slip out of its socket. Ample medical care, including hospitalization, could be required to ensure the shoulder injury heals correctly and does not cause a permanent complication.
  • Spinal cord injury: Complete damage to a section of the spinal cord that causes a severance of this bundle of nerves can result in total permanent paralysis. Even moderate or “mild” damage to the spinal cord can cause partial and/or temporary paralysis.

Regardless of the type of injury that you have suffered, Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation is prepared to take aggressive legal action on your behalf. Compensation can replace lost wages, cover medical expenses, and even provide a fair monetary amount that reflects the pain and suffering that you have endured. In some motorcycle accident cases—such as those that involve a driver who was intoxicated or impaired by drugs—it is possible to pursue punitive damages that are used to punish the defendant further for egregious or criminal wrongdoing.

Motorcycle accident attorney Scott J. Corwin has been recognized as a Southern California Super Lawyer and is a member of the National Trial Lawyers Association Top 100 Attorneys in California. In 2015, Scott was named a Top 100 Super Lawyer. He has also received an Avvo rating of 10.0 (“Superb”) and the Litigator Award for Catastrophic Injury and Motorcycle Accidents (Top 1% Nationwide). When you want an attorney in Los Angeles to help you with a motorcycle accident case involving a severe or life-changing injury, make him your first choice.
