Types of Motorcycle Accident Claims

  • Rear end accident in Baton Rouge

If you have been hit from behind in a motorcycle accident, you are not alone. Rear-end collisions are the most common type of accident. They are also the most common cause of whiplash, a painful and potentially disabling neck and back injury.

  • Head on collision accident in Baton Rouge, LA

A head-on collision is the type of accident most likely to result in death. Head-on collisions account for about 2 percent of car accidents but cause about 10 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities. And this is the most common cause of motorcycle crashes to boot. Louisiana is no stranger to motor vehicle traffic nor motorcycle accidents. According to statistics, 8-10 percent of road accidents in the state involve motorcycle crashes. Moreover, almost half of that number is caused by motorcycle riders sustaining fatal injuries because they did not wear any helmet.

  • Distracted driving or texting and driving accident in Baton Rouge

The driver who caused your car accident may have had something entirely different from driving on their mind at the time of the wreck. We’ve all seen examples of distracted driving: cell phone use behind the wheel, texting while driving, turning to deal with kids, applying makeup or shaving, fiddling with the radio, etc.

Distracted driving is multitasking at its potentially deadly worst. When a motor vehicle accident has been caused by a distracted driver, those who have been injured or lost a loved one deserve quick and sure compensation for their losses.

  • A collision at an intersection in Louisiana

It should come as no surprise that intersections are the scenes of many motorcycle accidents. Multiple streams of traffic cross and turn in front of each other. When drivers don’t pay attention at intersections, crashes are often the result.

As you may expect, the increased speeds allowed on Louisiana interstates and highways result in more severe crashes when accidents occur. When high-speed highway accidents happen in heavy traffic, multiple vehicles may become involved, resulting in pileups that damage many cars and motorcycles and injure or kill multiple people.

Baton Rouge motorcycle accidents can often lead to scars, lacerations or disfigurement.

A Long Road to Recovery for Motorcycle Accident Victims

Over the years that Babcock Injury Lawyers has been assisting motorcyclists injured in accidents and/or their families, we have seen what injured riders go through.

A serious motorcycle accident can cause injuries that require hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation and lengthy convalescence. Many motorcyclists are permanently disabled after collisions with cars and trucks. Some eventually die from their injuries, despite the best medical care.

If you have suffered any of the following injuries common to motorcycle accidents, Babcock Injury Lawyers would like to meet with you and explain your legal options:

1Traumatic brain injury (TBI).toggle btn

A motorcyclist who must lay the bike down for any reason can easily suffer a blow to the head. A sharp hit to the head or a sudden jolt is likely to cause some degree of brain damage, from concussion to severe TBI. A TBI can cause lasting damage to the victim’s cognitive and physical abilities, which may continue to deteriorate in severe cases. Damage to a significant portion of the brain can result in coma — long-term loss of consciousness — or a vegetative state.

2Spinal cord injury / Paralysis.toggle btn

A blow or severe wrenching of the spinal column (vertebrae) in a motorcycle accident can tear or sever the spinal cord and cause paralysis. Paralysis occurs below the point of a spinal cord injury. A damaged spinal cord cannot be repaired, though therapy may restore some sensation or use of paralyzed extremities. Most spinal cord injuries will leave the motorcyclist with some degree of paraplegia (lower body affected) or tetraplegia (all four limbs affected), which will require a lifetime of care.

3Broken bones / Amputations.toggle btn

Impact and crushing wounds suffered in motorcycle accidents result in many fractures and the occasional amputation. A broken collarbone (clavicle) is a common motorcycle accident injury, which requires several weeks of immobilization followed by therapy for full movement of the affected shoulders and arms to be restored. A motorcyclist’s extremities — limbs, feet, hands — are extremely vulnerable in a motorcycle crash. Legs and feet are more likely to be injured than arms and hands, but it is more common for hand injuries to include nerve damage, which may result in some loss of use or sensation.

4Abdominal injury.toggle btn

Vital organs, like the bowels, stomach and liver, may be ruptured by a severe blow or penetrating wound suffered in a motorcycle accident. This can cause multisystem trauma or massive bleeding, which may lead to shock and death if not treated quickly. Damage to internal organs requires prompt emergency surgery, which may be difficult to obtain after a wreck in a rural area.

5Chest injury.toggle btn

A blow to the chest in a motorcycle accident may result in broken ribs, a fractured sternum, and/or injury to upper cavity organs (heart, lungs, diaphragm) protected by these bones. Even pieces of broken bone can damage the heart or lungs and cause cardiac or respiratory failure, which can easily lead to death.

It only makes sense to seek compensation you or your loved one is owed by a negligent driver who caused the injuries you are dealing with today. Babcock Injury Lawyers can help you do it.

What to do After a Motorcycle Accident in Baton Rouge

Motorcycle accidents are often caused by negligence on the part of motorcycle riders. These are a great source of financial, emotional, and physical stress on the families of victims of motorcycle accidents. If you have sustained injuries and damages or lost a loved one from such accidents, you might need the help of a Louisiana motorcycle accident lawyer so you can file a lawsuit against the person responsible for that. No one deserves to experience the pain from such negligence. Call Babcock Injury Lawyers, one of the injury law firms in Louisiana, and get justice and compensation from your losses.

Most motorcycle accident cases are settled through negotiations with the liable (responsible) party’s insurance company. Babcock Injury Lawyers will only enter these negotiations after thoroughly researching your case, which includes building solid evidence of liability and fully accounting for your costs and losses.

To maximize the damages (compensation) available to you, we will also identify all insurance coverage applicable to your case, and seek payment from all available sources of compensation. This may result in multiple claims, each of which will be handled with equal determination and care.

Once we have developed a solid case, we’ll negotiate aggressively with representatives of each and every defendant for compensation that addresses all of your losses as allowed by Louisiana law, including:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Property damage (typically in a separate claim)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium

If the driver who caused your accident was legally drunk or impaired by drugs, we can also seek punitive damages, which would significantly increase the amount of money recovered in a settlement or jury verdict.

Louisiana is a pure comparative negligence state, which means the compensation you recover may be reduced according to the percentage of fault assigned to you for the accident. However, if less than 100 percent of the wreck is blamed on you, you can still recover damages.

As you know, Louisiana does not require motorcyclists over the age of 18 to wear helmets. However, you also need to understand that lack of a helmet in a rider’s accident is not a legal factor. The presence or absence of a helmet has no bearing on the cause of and, therefore, legal responsibility for a motorcycle accident.

In the aggressive settlement negotiations that Babcock Injury Lawyers is known for, we will vigorously challenge any attempt by insurance companies to unfairly cast blame on you or your loved one for a motorcycle accident. We reject the prejudice motorcyclists sometimes face, and we will not put up with it coming from an insurance adjuster.

If the insurance company will not do the right thing and negotiations fail, we will be ready to fight for you in court.
