Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable drivers on Louisiana's roads, due in large part to factors such as decreased level of protection and the lack of attention from other drivers. Wearing protective gear such as a helmet can provide some protection from head or brain injuries, but a motorcyclist rarely escapes a motorcycle accident without sustaining some type of serious personal injury. The 2010 Louisiana Traffic Data Report found there were 1,877 accidents involving motorcycles. Although only 68 fatalities resulted from these accidents, which is the lowest fatality rate since 2002, it is likely that a much higher number of the motorcyclists involved in the 1,877 accidents sustained serious or catastrophic injuries.

Motorcycles are involved in accidents for a wide variety of reasons, but a high percentage result from a car or truck driver who just fails to see the motorcycle. They may not observe the motorcycle in rear or side-view mirrors when changing lanes or turning. If you have recently been involved in a motorcycle accident and have suffered a serious injury a Baton Rouge personal injury attorney from The Layfield Law Firm, LLC can help you file an injury claim against the responsible driver.

Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Baton Rouge: Claims

There can be very serious consequences when a motorcycle is involved in an accident with a driver of a motor vehicle such as an automobile or truck. Since so little protection is provided on the motorcycle itself, drivers stand a much greater risk of suffering spinal injuries, broken bones, lost limbs, burns, lacerations, severe abrasions, internal damage and fatal injuries. When these injuries impact the victim's ability to work, medical bills and other costs related to the injury can be too much to bear. The Layfield Law Firm, LLC is committed to providing the kind of hard-working, experienced representation that you need to fight for and win the compensation you are entitled to under the law.
