Serious Injuries Occurring In Motorcycle Wrecks
Motorcyclists have little protection against the force of a vehicle slamming into them. Even though motorcyclists are required by Virginia law to wear a helmet, sometimes a helmet is not enough to protect them from sustaining the following injuries:
- Broken and dislocated bones
- Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Paralysis due to spinal cord trauma
- Neck or back injuries
- Severe road rash
- Lacerations or amputation injuries
- Crush injuries
Motorcyclists in and around Southampton, Emporia, Brunswick and Suffolk have to contend with both local and out-of-state travelers, as this is a major convergence of both Interstate 95 and Route 58 as well as other significant thoroughfares.
At Randall & Bruch, PC, our motorcycle accident lawyers in Virginia have extensive experience helping injured clients in these situations.
Negligence Factors Leading To Motorcycle Crashes
We often discover that a motorcycle crash occurs due to the negligence of other drivers. This can include other drivers who:
- Fail to give a motorcyclist enough space on the roadway
- Operate while impaired by alcohol or drugs
- Operate while distracted by cellphones or other devices
- Fail to follow traffic laws
When drivers in passenger vehicles operate carelessly or negligently around a motorcyclist, this can lead to serious crashes and significant bodily injuries.
Be Aware Of The Time Limit To File A Claim
While most motorcycle accident claims in Virginia will be handled through insurance settlements, it may be necessary for a motorcyclist to file a lawsuit against an alleged negligent driver.
Under Virginia law, the statute of limitations for these cases is two years from the date of injury. This means that an injured motorcyclist has a two-year window in which to file a personal injury lawsuit against an alleged negligent driver to secure compensation for their losses.
