Attorneys Mike Deering and Chris Hedrick have formed a unique partnership to offer unparalleled legal representation to those who have experienced the trauma of a motorcycle accident. With over 30 years of combined legal experience, our focus is on serving the Virginia Beach and the broader Hampton Roads community with dedication, expertise, and a personal understanding of the risks faced by motorcycle riders every day.

Common Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

Foot and Leg Injuries

  • Fractures: The metatarsal bones or the heel can fracture when the foot is trapped or crushed. Femur, tibia, and fibula fractures are also common, with femur fractures being particularly dangerous due to potential blood loss.
  • Lisfranc Injury: This involves a disruption of the midfoot, often from the foot being forcibly twisted.
  • Soft Tissue Damage: Injuries such as abrasions, lacerations, and severe cases of road rash are common due to direct contact with the road.

Hand and Arm Injuries

  • Fractures: The metacarpal bones or phalanges may break from the impact or when crushed between the motorcycle and the ground. The humerus, radius, or ulna in the arm can also fracture from similar trauma.
  • Dislocations and Sprains: Wrist and elbow dislocations or sprains can occur when the rider reaches out to break a fall.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: These include abrasions, lacerations, and road rash, especially on the palms and fingers from sliding across the road surface.

Signs That You Need Medical Attention

Prompt medical attention after a motorcycle accident could be crucial. Here are some signs that you should seek medical care immediately:

  • Severe pain, numbness, or tingling in any of the injured areas.
  • Visible injuries, including open wounds, bruising, and swelling.
  • Difficulty moving or bearing weight on the injured limb.
  • Persistent discomfort that doesn’t improve with rest or standard pain medication.
  • Any changes in sensation, temperature, or color of the skin near the injury, which could indicate more severe damage.

Legal Implications and Considerations

Legally, these injuries can significantly impact the outcome of personal injury claims following motorcycle accidents. The severity can dictate the compensation, while documentation of injuries is critical for substantiating claims. Delayed medical attention might weaken one’s case against insurance companies. Thus, prompt medical care is not only vital for one’s health but also essential from a legal standpoint.
