New Jersey Neck and Back Injury From Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcyclists are the most vulnerable motorists on the road. Statistics show that bikers are 28 times more likely to die in a crash and five times more likely to be injured. Many of the injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are extremely serious and may result in neck and back injuries that change a rider’s life forever. 
 
Statistics indicate motorcyclists face an 82 percent chance of sustaining injuries in an accident, and those injuries could result in paraplegia or tetraplegia. In 2018, there were 525 fatal motorcycle accidents and 564 deaths. If you or a loved one were injured in a New Jersey motorcycle accident, know that you may be entitled to compensation. Our personal injury attorneys at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm aggressively represent accident victims who suffered back and neck injuries. We will do everything we can to ensure that you receive the compensation you need and deserve in the wake of a serious motorcycle accident.
 
Neck and Back Injuries 
 
Neck and back injuries are common in motorcycle accidents, as the rider often gets ejected from their motorcycle. When this happens, they may sustain neck and back injuries after the force of the impact catapults them into another vehicle, an object or onto the road. Motorcycle riders stand a higher chance of sustaining severe back and neck injuries after striking an object as compared to the ground. 
 
Hitting an object may cause neck and back injuries that result in temporary or permanent paralysis, as the spinal column traversing the length of the back is the highway for the body’s nerves to send signals to the brain for the body to function. Healing a back or neck injury may take months, years, or sadly, may be a permanent injury. 
 
Other injuries that can manifest after a motorcycle accident include:
 
• Back injuries – including fractured vertebrae, herniated discs, low back sprains and strains, and fractured or broken ribs.
• Head injuries – mild to severe traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
• Internal injuries – damage to the heart, kidneys, spleen, bowels, liver or lungs. 
• Spinal cord injuries – resulting in permanent or partial paralysis.
• Neck injuries – disc injuries, strains, whiplash, cervical dislocation, cervical whiplash, cervical slipped disc, bulging discs, herniated discs, cervical sprains, thoracic slipped disc, lumbar slipped disc and pinched nerves.
 
Filing a Personal Injury Claim
 
After your motorcycle accident, reach out to a personal injury attorney to ensure your rights are protected. Speak to an experienced motorcycle accident attorney at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm if you want to file a personal injury claim seeking compensation for medical expenses from your motorcycle crash. 
 
After an accident, insurance companies immediately become a part of the injured victim’s recovery process. Adjusters quickly attempt to get the rider to settle, usually for far less than what they could be awarded in a settlement or trial. Insurance adjusters work hard to show that the injuries you sustained are unrelated to the motorcycle accident; rather, they may assert that they could be due to a pre-existing injury. They want you to take a quick, low settlement offer, even before you know the extent of your neck and back injuries. Do not face insurance companies alone – have an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer working on your behalf.
