Common Types of Leg Injuries in Motorcycle Crashes

When a biker is involved in a motorcycle accident, leg injuries are among the most common results. These injures can be very damaging and require intensive, prolonged and expensive treatment. In severe cases, the injury may result in a leg amputation and the need to use a prosthetic for the rest of your life.

In many accidents, the rider’s lower legs and feet can suffer from crushing injuries. Side-impact accidents may involve the cycle being struck from the side, causing severe injury to the rider or passenger.

Leg injuries can include the following:

  • Bone fractures and broken bones, including femur, tibia and fibula
  • Road rash
  • Torn ligaments
  • Knee injury
  • Foot injury

Managing a leg injury following a motorcycle accident can be overwhelming. Depending on your situation, you will need time away from work for numerous doctor visits and physical therapy appointments. If your injury is severe, you may also need counseling or pain management to help you control the pain. A serious leg injury may make it difficult or impossible to enjoy sports or hobbies in the same way that you did before your accident.

Our motorcycle accident law firm will learn about your situation, your injury and expected prognosis in order to help you pursue fair compensation.

Beware of Low Settlement Offers From Insurance Companies

Too many injury victims have accepted small financial settlements because they thought the offer was the best they would get. In some cases, they were pressured by insurance claims adjusters to sign so that they could obtain money quickly. We understand the financial pressures that you may feel following an accident because you have been unable to work or your medical bills are piling up.
