Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries in New York

Legal Support from NYC Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

The NYC attorneys of Proner & Proner are used to seeing certain types of injuries. We have also worked with many clients with unique cases and medical problems. No matter your scenario, Proner & Proner can help you seek payment for the medical costs, wage losses, and other costs resulting from your motorcycle accident in New York City, Brooklyn, Queens, or the Bronx.

Proner’s Most Commonly Seen NY Motorcycle Accident Injury Cases

Motorcycles are commonly perceived as the motor vehicle that is more unsafe on the road, and a big reason for this is that a motorcycle is more likely to be in a car driver’s blind spot due to the size of the bike. Because of the size of the vehicle and the clear lack of protection or cushioning found in most cars and trucks on the road, motorcycle accident victims are much more likely to experience catastrophic injuries after a crash, and many people lose their lives.

The most common injuries that attorneys at Proner & Proner see in NYC motorcycle accidents include:

  • Head Injuries: This can include concussions, brain damage, skull fractures, etc.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: These injuries can vary in severity, depending on the location of the injury on the spine.
  • Road Rash: Many bike crash victims are thrown from their motorcycle, which results in contact and rubbing against the road and causes scrapes and burns on the skin.
  • Muscle and Bone Damage: Depending on how the crash victim lands, bones commonly are prone to breakage and muscles are prone to pain-inducing tears.
  • Biker’s Arm: This injury is caused by the bike falling and crushing the arm, resulting in nerve damage.
  • Wrist Injuries: These injuries can require surgery and lengthy recuperation.
  • Leg Injury: These types of injuries can include broken bones or amputation.
  • Amputation Injuries: An amputation injury may require a motorcycle accident victim to wear a prosthesis.
  • Death: Unfortunately, due to the lack of safety features and the size of motorcycles relative to cars, loss of life is very common in motorcycle accidents.
