Some types of valuable injuries frequently seen in motorcycle accidents:
- Road Rash
- Knee Injuries
- Concussion a/k/a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (common but often overlooked)
Road rash can be minor, which completely goes away, to road rash that leaves a scar, to road rash so severe it is called “de-gloving.” A road rash such as the one in the photo below is severe and will cause permanent scars. It is a valuable injury.
Fractures, also known as broken bones, include any bone from a broken nose, broken ankle, broken arm, finger, rib (a fractured rib is extremely painful), and other bones. The image below shows an x-ray of a fractured radius and ulna in the right arm. This x-ray was taken after surgery and shows a plate and screws installed. The surgery causes a scar which is also seen in the “Scars” section below.
This photo shows a fractured ankle after surgery with external fixation. The fixator is used to keep the bones from moving while healing and is later removed. This injury was settled for $155,000 even though our client was severely drunk with a blood alcohol level of .203.*
This shows a medical illustration we did showing a fractured pinky finger which was the only injury and was settled for the entire insurance policy.*
This photo shows a scar from surgery to repair a fractured radius and ulna in the arm in the x-ray above.
This photo shows a forearm scar from a laceration without a fracture or surgery, which was settled for $150,000.*
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury – An often overlooked motorcycle injury is the Mild Traumatic Brain Injury or mild TBI, often referred to as a concussion. Approximately 75% of traumatic brain injuries are mild yet cause devastating life changes to an injured motorcyclist. For this reason, a mild traumatic brain injury claim can be worth millions of dollars.
We know how to identify and prove the existence of mild traumatic brain injury and obtained a $1.25 million settlement for a concussion.
Mild traumatic brain injury may become more apparent when looking at some of the symptoms. An MBTI can be worth well over $1M. Read about what a mild Traumatic Brain Injury is, what the symptoms are, and what you can do about it. See if you have any of the symptoms of brain injury
