Nashville Broken Bone Injury Attorney
Motorcycle Accident Broken Bone Injury Lawsuits
Motorcycle accidents are always traumatic experiences for those involved and often result in severe injuries to the body. When a motorcycle accident occurs, the biker is almost always thrown from the bike and may sustain broken bones or fractures, which may be debilitating for months, years, and even life, greatly reducing the victim’s quality of life and ability to perform work and leisure activities.
Although many broken bone injuries are not life threatening, fractures of the skull, back, and pelvis may be fatal. Other fractures usually cause severe pain and require expensive medical care. In serious cases, bone fractures may require long term physical therapy, resulting in significant medical bills and time away from work. Victims of motorcycle accidents caused by another driver are often entitled to compensation for medical expenses and loss of wages resulting from the injuries, along with the cost of rehabilitative services and various non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering, disability, diminished quality of life, and others. If you have suffered from a motorcycle accident that resulted in a broken bone injury, contact the attorneys at Phillip Miller & Associates in Nashville as soon as you can to protect your right to a settlement.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Contrary to the common misconception, the majority of motorcycle accidents are usually caused by negligent automobile drivers, rather than the motorcyclist. Accidents often occur because automobile drivers are distracted, inattentive, or reckless at the wheel and simply not aware of the motorcycle sharing the road. Many accidents are caused by other vehicles crossing the path of the motorcycle. In these cases, the driver of the automobile is almost always the responsible party. Other times, a dangerous roadway condition may be responsible for the accident.
Common Types of Broken Bone Injuries
The most common type of broken bone injuries are fractures in the arms, legs, ankles, collarbone, and facial fractures such as in the nose. Skull fractures, unfortunately, are not unusual in motorcycle accidents, and are very serious. Fractured vertebrae in the back are also serious injuries, especially when nerve damage is involved.
