Depending on each rider’s intentions, they will typically select a motorcycle which fits their needs.

Some of the most commonly seen motorcycles throughout Baton Rouge include:

Of course, there are several different types of motorcycles available, however these are the most commonly seem motorcycles across our roadways. It is clear that these motorcycles have come a long way since the first steam powered motorcycles were used in the 1860’s. Whichever bike a rider has selected, there is still a large risk for these individuals to become involved in an accident.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Throughout our Baton Rouge roadways, we may notice several motorcyclists; unfortunately many times drivers fail to notice these riders, thus resulting in accidents. Of course, this is not always to blame on the driver of the passenger vehicle, as many motorcyclists also fail to abide by motorcycle traffic laws. In any case, our attorneys have gathered some common causes for motorcycle accidents. These causes include:

  • Bad Weather Conditions
  • Blind Spots
  • Construction Zones
  • Dangerous Lane Changes
  • Driver Distractions
  • Driving While Under the Influence
  • Excessive Speeding
  • Failure to Yield
  • Inexperienced Driving
  • Lane Splitting
  • Mechanical Failure
  • Road Hazards
  • Stunt Riding
  • Texting while Riding

As these are some of the most common causes for motorcycle accidents, we can all do our part to reduce these risk factors by abiding by all traffic laws and practice defensive driving habits. Our attorneys also advise seeking the proper licenses in order to operate your specific type of motorcycle.

Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Unlike an automobile accident where the passengers are protected from the outside environment and other vehicle by the automobiles safety features, motorcyclists do not have any of these safety features, thus they are exposed to many dangers. When a motorcyclist strikes another object and is thrown from their bike, any object can become deadly or cause injuries. Some of these motorcycle accident injuries may include:

  • Ankle Injuries
  • Back Injuries
  • Burn Injuries
  • Dislocated Joints
  • External Bleeding
  • Femoral Fractures
  • Internal Injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Loss of Limb
  • Neck Injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Patella Fractures
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Riders Arm
  • Road Rash
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Tibial Fractures
  • Traumatic Brain injuries
  • Wrist Injuries
  • Fatal Injuries

While these are some of the most common types of injuries associated with motorcycles, in order to receive compensation benefits, a person must be able to prove that these injuries were caused by another individual or entity. Our motorcycle accident attorneys have the tools and experience to assist clients in gathering this necessary evidence.

Motorcycle Accident Injury Compensation Benefits

Many individuals are under the false assumption that they do not have enough money to afford an attorney. Our attorneys would like to inform these people that they do not have to worry about affording an attorney because our attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that we will not charge you for our services unless a winning verdict or settlement has been made and you recover.

After recognizing that our attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis, we would like to enlighten clients and potential clients of the potential compensation benefits which they may be entitled to. These compensation benefits will be determined by many factors depending on the outcome of the motorcycle accident. The most common types of compensation benefits associated with motorcycles crashes include:

  • Disfigurement
  • Existing Medical Expenses
  • Future Medical Expenses
  • Funeral Expenses
  • Hospital Costs
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Loss of Current Wages
  • Loss of Future Wages

  • Mental Impairments
  • Physical Impairments
  • Mental Anguish

Following an accident, it is recommended to seek immediate medical attention in order to assure your injuries are taken care of, as well as gather the necessary documentation needed by our attorneys to seek compensation benefits from these negligent and injury causing individuals.
