Drivers and passengers involved in motorcycle accidents often sustain severe burn injuries. These types of injuries most commonly occur when any part of the body comes in contact with a hot muffler or exhaust pipe. When riding a motorcycle, your body is exposed to the bike’s hot metal surfaces, making it hard to avoid a burn in the event of an accident. Burn injuries can cause serious pain, suffering, and when severe enough, disabling conditions. Burn injuries can also result from a defect in the motorcycle. Overheating has been an issue in some owner’s motorcycles, causing motors to become so hot that it poses a constant danger for drivers and passengers to be burned.
The attorneys at Berger and Green have experience in helping burn victims of a motorcycle accident or a defective mechanical issue in the motorcycle. For experienced guidance and information regarding a claim for your injuries, contact the personal injury and product liability attorneys at Berger and Green.
If you or someone you know have suffered from a burn injury due to a motorcycle accident or a defect in the motorcycle, you may have a claim to recover compensation. Burn injuries can require extensive surgeries and medical treatment. It is important to seek compensation for general damages such as medical bills and lost wages.
