Bowie, Motorcycle accident lawyer, George Patterson has handled dozens of motorcycle accidents.  Motorcycle accidents and car accidents may be caused by the same violations of the rules of the road, but motorcycle accidents create several unique issues.

First, most motorcycle insurance policies do not provide personal injury protection or ("PIP").   PIP is available in most car accident cases and pays for at least $2,500 of medical treatment without having to prove who was at fault for the accident.  Bowie, Motorcycle accident lawyer, George Patterson can guide you through the process of obtaining quality medical care for your injuries even if you do not have health insurance or personal injury protection.

In all motor vehicle accident cases your lawyer needs to establish that the other driver was at fault.  In many motorcycle accident cases, the other driver often failed to see the motorcycle before the accident.  The driver is then forced to admit that he failed to see a motorcycle that was there to be seen or allege that the motorcycle driver was speeding, made an unsafe lane change or failed to have his lights on.  These allegations may be difficult to disprove and will require an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to refute the allegations.

Motorcyclists tend to have different and more severe injuries than those in car accidents.  Most motorcycle accident victims suffer road rash.  The road rash may lead to cosmetic damage and scarring necessitating the services of a plastic surgeon.  A motorcycle accident lawyer can arrange for an estimate from a plastic surgeon to surgically improve the scarring left from road rash.  The road rash may also have damaged a tattoo.  Motorcycle accident lawyer has successfully recovered monetary damages for a tattoo damaged in a motorcycle accident.  These are all damages that an experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help you recover.

Head injuries are also common in motorcycle accidents.  A traumatic brain injury or concussion often occurs in motorcycle accidents even if a helmet was worn.  Football players suffer concussions in games while wearing helmets and the forces in those games are often far less than the forces in a motorcycle accident.  If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and are suffering from any signs of a concussion it is important that you are seen by a neurologist.   Most people involved in severe motorcycle accidents are taken to the emergency room or shock trauma center and given a CT scan of the brain.  Medical experts in court, routinely explain to juries that CT scans of the brain are not designed to rule out a concussion but to rule out more serious conditions such as swelling of the brain or a bleed in the brain.  These experts explain that a normal CT scan of the brain after a motorcycle accident does not mean that the motorcyclist did not suffer a concussion.  Neurologists offer treatment and important medical guidance to those that have suffered concussions or traumatic brain injuries.  The motorcycle accident lawyers at RGPH have represented motorcycle accident victims that have suffered serious head injuries, broken bones and permanent scarring.

Fractures that often require immediate surgery are seen in motorcycle accidents.  Fractures to the wrists, forearms, tibia, fibula, pelvis, ribs and femur are not uncommon in motorcycle accidents.  Many of these fractures require the insertion of pins and rods.  Insurance companies will often not compensate these as permanent injuries without medical opinions being properly documented and obtained.  An experienced motorcycle attorney can make sure that your treating doctors or independent experts document the full extent of your injuries.
