Motorcycle DUI Accidents
Drunk driving accidents can result in severe and debilitating injuries, and even fatalities. Other than helmets and clothes, bike riders and passengers have little to protect them in the event of an unfortunate collision. When a motorist operates a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they place everyone sharing the roadway with them in grave danger. While a DUI is a criminal offense punished in criminal court, this does nothing to compensate motorcycle accident injury victims or the families of those who have lost loved ones suffering from financial, physical and emotional hardships.

The design of motorcycles leaves riders with very little protection, so when a crash occurs, bikers and passengers are often thrown out into the open road, leaving them vulnerable to a wide range of serious and catastrophic injuries. The most common injuries associated with a motorcycle DUI crash include the following:
- Head Injuries & Brain Damage
- Back & Neck Injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Burns & Road Rash
- Shoulder & Knee Injuries
- Loss of Limbs
- Broken Bones & Fractures
- Wrongful death
The at-fault driver in a drunk driving accident can be held financially liable for any injuries, damages and losses suffered by a victim or their family. Victims of motorcycle DUI crashes often suffer severe physical injuries in addition to financial stress and emotional grief. Family members who have lost loved ones in drunk driving collisions might not have the financial means to provide for their family anymore. Motorcycle DUI injury victims and the families of deceased victims can seek compensation for their losses, including medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, funeral expenses, future income and pain and suffering.
