Motorcycle Accident Injury Claims

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries:

Motorcycle crashes are common — particularly among beginning riders. Motorcycle accidents are inherently dangerous due to the rider’s high level of exposure. Crash analyses show head and neck injuries account for a majority of serious and fatal injuries to motorcyclists.

  • Severe road rash
  • Traumatic amputation
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Brain injuries
  • Paralysis (paraplegia and quadriplegia)
  • Wrongful death

Motorcycle accidents are caused by a number of factors, including poor weather conditions, defective roadway designs, product defects (tires, helmets, etc.), and reckless or negligent driving. If you or a family member has been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact the Law Offices of Cliff Enten. Our attorneys have successfully represented many victims of motorcycle accidents throughout the Denver area, helping them achieve the fair settlements they deserve.
