Indiana Motorcycle Lawyer Representing Clients in Auburn

With its historical buildings and beautiful scenery, Auburn is a great place to get around on by bike. Unfortunately, motorcycle rides do not always end well for bikers. Other motorists do not give bikers the same space and respect on the roads that they provide for other drivers, and serious crashes are not uncommon. When an accident occurs, bikers are most at risk because they have so little protection. Bikers are very exposed when they are on the roads and so during an accident, they sustain some of the most severe injuries. If you have been hurt while on your bike, our Auburn motorcycle accident lawyer can help you recover the damages you are entitled to.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Auburn

The majority of motorcycle accidents in Auburn are caused by the negligence of drivers and other entities. The most common forms of negligence, or carelessness, that results in serious accidents are as follows:

  • Left turns
  • Improper lane changes
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Hit from behind
  • Dooring
  • Tailgating
  • Defective bike parts
  • Defective road conditions

Common Injuries After a Motorcycle Accident

The injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident are rarely minor. They are typically quite serious, require extensive medical treatment, and are very painful for accident victims to recover from. The most common injuries during a motorcycle accident are as follows:

  • Head injuries: Indiana does not have a universal helmet law and many bikers choose not to wear them. Without a helmet, the head and brain are very exposed and bikers can suffer from traumatic brain injuries, fractured skulls, and more.
  • Road rash: Road rash is a series of cuts and scrapes that are usually the result of a biker’s skin scraping along the pavement during a crash. Road rash may sound like a minor injury, but it is quite serious. The injury requires immediate treatment or it could develop a very serious infection.
  • Burns: Burns are some of the most painful injuries bikers suffer. They require extensive treatment and can cause permanent scarring and disfigurement.
  • Broken bones: Due to the fact that they have such little protection, it is not uncommon for motorcycle accident victims to suffer from broken legs, arms, pelvises, hips, ankles, and ribs.

The above injuries are just a few of the most common bikers sustain during a crash. When they do, injured bikers can often file a claim for compensation.
