Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accident victims suffer a wide range of injuries. Many are so severe that they prevent victims from returning to work for long periods, and sometimes forever. In these cases, victims may experience long hospital stays or residential facilities, receiving the full-time care, therapy, rehabilitation, and medical attention they need to recover.
During that time, expenses from medical treatment can accumulate while income plummets. The resulting financial strain can be devastating. Without justice and compensation, it can be hard to ever recover financially.
Work with a lawyer to find out if you are eligible to have your medical expenses covered. Some of the worst motorcycle accident injuries include:
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
Traumatic brain injuries result from powerful blows to the head and can occur with or without lacerations to the affected tissue. TBIs can be mild, moderate, or severe, and though symptoms may be detected immediately, “others may appear days or weeks later” (Mayo Clinic).
That is why it is important to be aware of any symptoms you suffer after the accident. If they occur days or weeks after your accident, they could still be accident-related. To rule out a potential brain injury, you may want to speak to a doctor if you notice any pain or behavioral changes in the weeks after your accident. Some symptoms are:
- Sensitivity to stimuli including sounds, lights
- Changes in smell and taste
- Lack of coordination
Spinal Cord Injuries
Like TBIs, spinal cord injuries are often extremely serious and can affect the muscles, nerves, and mobility temporarily or long-term. Mayo Clinic recommends that accident victims receive medical evaluations after their accident regardless of whether they feel well or not. These injuries also may not be immediately obvious, and without treatment, they can become unexpectedly severe.
Other injuries that can require extensive recovery time and treatment include:
- Bone crush injuries
- Internal injuries
- Muscle tears
- Severe lacerations
- Loss of limb
- Permanent disfigurement
- Road rash

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Filing a lawsuit does not have to be difficult when you call Bader Scott Injury Lawyers. If you are planning to do so, it is important to remember that there generally is a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits in Georgia (O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33).
A victim who does not file during that period could lose their right to do so. Some stages of filing a lawsuit include:
During the prefiling phase of a personal injury lawsuit, attorneys gather as much information about the case as possible. This includes collecting medical records, information about medical prognoses and future treatment, as well as past and future medical expenses. Attorneys may also speak to witnesses who were at the scene, expert witnesses, if necessary, and begin to pull the case together.
At filing, the defendant will be presented with a settlement demand. The settlement demand is a figure that the victim’s attorney has calculated to be fair compensation for the victim’s suffering. The defendant can choose to agree to the initial settlement offer, negotiate a settlement, or fight the case completely. The defendant’s response will determine how the rest of the case proceeds.
When a defendant has opted to negotiate a proposed settlement, our attorneys represent clients during that process. Negotiations can be challenging and last for months. Despite this, we represent clients through all negotiations, providing them with the support they prefer throughout that process.
If the defendant refuses to negotiate or agree to a settlement demand, then the case could go to trial. If the case goes to trial, there may be a hearing with the defendant’s attorneys and the judge, mandatory settlement conferences, etc., before the actual trial. Our firm will take care of those procedures and carry the case out to trial.
A lawyer with our firm can explain these stages in greater detail and offer specifics on how they may apply to your case. Call us and get your questions answered today.

Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
If you have lost someone in a motorcycle accident, you may be eligible for recovery through a wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death lawsuits compensate eligible parties, such as certain members of the family, for their loss. Some of the costs they may be able to recover include funeral and burial expenses, and medical costs, as well as a potential damage award for non-economic losses, such as the loss of the relationship.
