Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Due to their relative lack of protections, motorcyclists tend to sustain severe, life-altering injuries when they are struck by large passenger cars, pickup trucks, SUVs, and other motor vehicles.

Some of the most common injuries associated with motorcycle accidents include:

  • Burns, including friction burns (road rash)
  • Broken bones/fractures
  • Serious lacerations, cuts, bruises, and abrasions
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Whiplash
  • Neck, back, and shoulder injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Soft tissue and organ damage
  • Amputation/loss of limb

Such catastrophic injuries can have devastating effects, leading to a lifetime of disability. The cost of treating motorcycle accident injuries is often exorbitant, and victims face a painful and time-consuming road to recovery.

At Tom McGrath’s Motorcycle Law Group, our Greenville motorcycle accident attorneys have the experience and resources to pursue maximum compensation on behalf of injured motorcyclists. We frequently work with accident reconstructionists and other experts who help us gather all available evidence and build powerful, persuasive personal injury cases for our clients. Our aggressive approach has helped us secure numerous favorable settlements and verdicts in our 30+ years in practice.

Who Is Liable for a Motorcycle Accident?

Although many people mistakenly believe that motorcycle riders are dangerous, risk-taking drivers, we at Tom McGrath’s Motorcycle Law Group know that this is simply not true. In fact, as a whole, motorcyclists are among the safest and most defensive motorists on the road. Unfortunately, this does not mean that they can always predict—or avoid—accidents.

Liability for motorcycle accidents in South Carolina rests with the person or party who caused the crash. In most cases, the at-fault party is not the motorcyclist, but another driver who acted carelessly, recklessly, or negligently.

Examples of negligent motorist behavior that frequently leads to motorcycle accidents include:

  • Driving while distracted
  • Texting and driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving aggressively or recklessly
  • Following too closely (tailgating)
  • Making dangerous turns, lane changes, etc.
  • Failing to check for motorcyclists in blind spots
  • Failing to see motorcyclists
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Running red lights, stop signs, etc.
  • Opening car doors into oncoming motorcyclists’ paths

These are just some examples of how motorist negligence can put motorcycle riders at risk. If you believe that someone else was at fault for the accident that caused your injuries or the death of your loved one, you could be entitled to legal action.
