Dirt Bike Accident Attorneys

Also known as a trail bike or an off-road bike, the dirt bike is designed for traversing dirt roads and trails. It’s rugged, sturdy design gives riders better traction on loosely packed ground, which makes it the optimal choice of vehicle for motocross, a competitive form of dirt biking.

With the thrill of riding a dirt bike, though, comes a certain level of risk. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that there are an increasing number of injuries and fatalities associated with riding dirt bikes. Connecticut state laws require a helmet to be worn at all times on a motorcycle but that does not eliminate the probability of injury or the possibility of death.

From 2001 to 2004 the CDC reported 23,800 hospital-treated, non-fatal injuries to dirt bikers aged 19 and younger, and because most of these incidents occur off of the road, these numbers are likely very low compared to the actual amount of incidents that occur.

Additionally, many dirt bike trails are away from main roads which make it more difficult for emergency services to respond quickly when an accident takes place. The injuries from dirt bike accidents can range from bumps, bruises and minor cuts to severe brain trauma, loss of limb or death.

It can be a frightening, confusing and chaotic time, and our legal team is dedicated to fighting for the MAXIMUM amount of compensation that you are eligible for when another person’s negligent actions have caused you harm.

Injuries Associated with Dirt Bike Accidents

Although dirt bikes operate at a speed that is much slower than a typical motorbike, the terrain of dirt bike and motocross courses is a hazard to the rider and those in the area who could also be injured by the bike. The courses are not always clearly marked, maintained or monitored so collisions with other drivers, falls during jumps or unpredictable roads can all contribute to serious injury in these cases.

Some of the most typical injuries that arise from dirt bike accidents include:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) notes that the most common areas of injury are the arms, neck and head, and these areas account for over 60% of all dirt bike injuries. Other common injuries are abrasions, contusions and fractures.

Alternatively, riders can be injured simply through a collision with another rider on the same course. In this case, the negligent rider could be liable for the injuries, pain and suffering that the victim sustained as a result of the crash. Not only do dirt bike accidents cause physical harm to the rider but they can experience serious emotional or mental trauma, the effects of which can linger for years to come. Physical injuries can affect the victim’s ability to live a normal life, in the case of a brain injury or facial disfiguration.

Because of these tangible and intangible injuries, it is wise to seek legal counsel following Connecticut dirk bike accidents as you may be entitled to compensation that can assist you in paying for hospital bills, rehabilitative services or mental health care that could be necessary to help you or your loved one recover from the crash. An experienced personal injury attorney will have the knowledge and skills to help you navigate the litigation process as smoothly as possible at a time when you may need someone on your side.
