Lake Charles Motorcycle Accident Attorney

The worst type of Louisiana vehicle accident

Louisiana law requires that motorcyclists wear helmets when riding motorcycles but helmets are not enough protection when an accident happens.  Because of the lack of a protective structure surrounding a motorcycle rider and the size of the other vehicles, motorcycle accidents have a great potential for serious or catastrophic injury.  The types of injuries caused in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Multiple fractures
  • Amputations
  • Paralysis
  • Burns
  • Spinal injury
  • Wrongful death

Motorcycle accidents can result in more physical injury than other vehicular accidents in addition to emotional trauma and financial challenges for the injured motorcycle rider.
