Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

San Jose Personal Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

The exhilaration of riding a motorcycle and the freedom that comes with it is enticing to many riders in San Jose. Our scenic roads and breathtaking landscapes are the perfect backdrop for a relaxing motorcycle ride. Our San Jose personal injury lawyers at Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP appreciate this, as we are aficionados, too.

Poor weather and road conditions, a drunk or distracted driver, or careless trucker can be deadly for a motorcycle rider. Motorcycles do not offer any protection during an accident, and the results could be fatal. Although helmets have proven to decrease the number of brain and head injuries, the rest of the body is still susceptible to serious or life-threatening complications.

Common Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

Accident injuries from motorcycle crashes include the following:

  • Broken bones

  • Cuts and scars
  • Head trauma
  • Neck injury
  • Paralysis
  • Scarring and disfigurement

It is imperative that you seek medical attention immediately or soon after a motorcycle accident. Many symptoms of accident related injuries may not be obvious right away.

You may be able to seek damages if the accident was someone else's fault or due to negligence.
