Riders Arm and Motorcycle Crashes

riderMotorcycle accidents can cause a wide range of debilitating injuries. One, in particular, is rider’s arm. Also known as biker’s arm, this type of injury often occurs when a motorcyclist’s bike lands on their upper arm in a crash. The result is significant nerve damage to any of the following major nerves: the median, the ulnar, or the radial.

Motorcycle accident victims who’ve sustained rider’s arm injuries can suffer a loss of sensation or muscle function in the affected limb—or even permanent paralysis. As a result, people with rider’s arm may require extensive medical treatment and time away from work, if they’re able to return to work at all. However, the cost of such treatment can quickly become unmanageable.

Fortunately, riders injured in Georgia motorcycle accidents caused by another person or entity’s negligence may be entitled to compensation for injuries and other losses. In fact, individuals who file personal injury lawsuits can seek compensation for accident-related medical expenses, as well as additional economic and non-economic damages. This may include:

  • Emergency treatment
  • Doctor’s visits
  • Specialist appointments
  • Surgical procedures
  • Medication
  • Assistive care and devices
  • Medically necessary travel
  • Future medical treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damages
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

To obtain financial recovery for these and other damages, motorcycle crash victims and their attorneys are required to present evidence of the injuries and their effects on the individual’s life. Detailed medical records and a daily journal describing how rider’s arm impacts his or her ability to carry out regular tasks can be particularly effective.
