Motorcycle accidents result in serious, often life-threatening, injuries to bikers and their passengers.

When a crash occurs, neck injuries, other conditions such as traumatic brain injury, spinal trauma and severe road rash and skin infections may result result. Further, it’s not usual for a biker to suffer fractures and other internal injuries.

If you or someone you love has been hurt, or killed, in a motorcycle accident, you need to contact an experienced, aggressive personal injury attorney who will work tirelessly to get you the financial damages and justice you deserve. Andrew Prince, Esq. of Team Law has been fighting for the rights of motorcycle riders for more than 25 years. You can rely on him to get you maximum compensation in your accident lawsuit.

What is Whiplash and How Do I Know If I Have It?

Physically, the human brain is protected by bone, but there is some movement within the skull. In an accident, the biker’s head jolts back and forth inside the helmet. If they are lucky, the helmet provides protection, but the neck vertebrae are fiercely whipped back and forth as well, usually causing significant injury to the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the neck. This is whiplash. ‘

  • If the motorcycle is hit from the rear or at a low speed, whiplash is common. Concussion, injury to the brain itself, is also likely.
  • If the impact is harder, the rider is often thrown from the bike, resulting in more significant neck and spinal trauma.

The symptoms of whiplash include severe neck pain, stiffness and you may even feel pain radiating down your shoulders into your arms and lower back. Severe whiplash also results in persistent headaches, vision and hearing problems and also emotional issues such as depression and anxiety. Chronic, life-long pain, often diagnosed as fibromyalgia, is common following serious motorcycle accidents in Essex, Hudson, Union or Middlesex counties.

Don’t be a doctor. You will find out you have whiplash when a trained physician diagnoses it. Get examined as soon as possible after any type of accident. First off, you will get the care and treatment you need in a timely manner. Secondly, filing a personal injury lawsuit and attempting to hold the other driver responsible for the negligence that caused your accident requires documentation and medical evidence. Visiting the doctor for your injuries will begin an important paper trail.
