Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
We all know that riding a motorcycle without a helmet- which is legal in Florida for those over age 20- is dangerous. But one of the worst consequences is traumatic brain injury, or TBI. TBI is a serious brain injury that can affect personality, speech, cognitive thinking, motor skills, and all other abilities. Many patients with TBI can no longer work, need full-time care, or suffer extreme financial hardships as a result of mounting medical bills. The emotional trauma resulting from a TBI often affects the victim’s family as well. Most TBIs are caused by accidents and are the fault of someone else. If your loved one has experienced a TBI as the result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, we can help. If your loved one has experienced a traumatic brain injury while riding a sportbike, Harley or another type of motorcycle, we can help. Please contact Florida motorcycle accident attorney Richard Troutman today.
Because motorcyclists don’t have the impact-reducing shell that automobile drivers have to protect them during accidents, motorcycle riders are at increased risk for severe injury. Hard falls, collision impact, bone breaks, burns, and other injuries can cause permanent disfigurement. This disfigurement is not only emotionally difficult to accept, but it also can affect the victim’s ability to perform job duties, interact comfortably in social situations, and even complete day-to-day tasks, such as chores. It can ultimately lead to severe depression or the inability to function normally. If you or a loved one has been disfigured in a motorcycle accident in Florida, including sportbike or Harley accidents, we can help. Please contact Florida motorcycle accident lawyer Richard Troutman today.
Distracted, aggressive drivers are prevalent on our highways, and accidents are an everyday occurrence. Many times, these accidents involve motorcycle riders. While many of these accidents prove to be minor, many more ultimately result in fatal injuries. If your loved one suffered fatal injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, we can help. Even if you are not sure if the other driver was at fault, please contact our firm today. Richard Troutman is an experienced motorcycle accident injury lawyer who stands ready to help Florida residents in their time of need.
A fall during a motorcycle accident may result in a myriad of debilitating injuries-road rash, sprains, cuts, and fractures, to name a few. Bone fractures are particularly painful and require a lengthy recovery. Having to wear a cast can seriously affect your ability to go about your daily activities-you might not be able to perform your job duties, exercise, or participate in recreational activities. Driving may also be out of the question. If you or a loved one suffered a fracture in a motorcycle accident whether you ride a sportbike, Harley or another type of motorcycle, attorney Richard Troutman can help. Please contact us in Florida today.
Although many motorcyclists wear thick, durable clothing such as denim or leather, they can still suffer painful skin injuries-bruises, skinned knees, cuts with gravel in them – should they fall, slide/roll, or be injured in a crash. Known as “road rash,” these uncomfortable yet relatively minor injuries can quickly turn serious should they become infected or go untreated. Road rash can also be traumatic in cases of high-speed crashes. If you or a loved one has suffered road rash in Florida – due to sportbike, Harley, or other motorcycle accidents – we can help. Please contact Florida motorcycle accident attorney Richard Troutman today.
Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are among the most debilitating – they are long-term, and in most cases, they cause permanent injury. A majority of victims need full-time care and may never work again. Many such injuries are caused by motorcycle accidents, resulting from someone else’s negligence or carelessness. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury in Florida due to Harley, sportbike, or other types of motorcycle accidents, we can help. Please contact us today. With offices in Winter Park, we are conveniently located for residents of Orlando, Florida.
The loss of a loved one is traumatic enough, but when that loss is someone else’s fault, pain is intensified. A drunk driver who kills a motorcyclist, a semi-truck driver who injures a motorcyclist by not paying attention, or a hit-and-run driver can all be held liable in cases of wrongful death. If you have lost a loved one due to the fault of someone else, we can help. Please contact Florida motorcycle accident lawyer Richard Troutman today.
Although motorcycles are subjected to safety testing, sometimes below-standard equipment makes its way out onto the street. Defective tires, brakes, and other bike parts cause riders to lose control of their bikes, putting them at dangerous risk of accident and even death. Defective helmets fail to protect motorcyclists from head injury, including TBI. If you or a loved one has been injured by defective motorcycle equipment, we can help. Please contact us today.

Hazardous Road Conditions
Riding a motorcycle can be dangerous enough without throwing hazardous road conditions into the mix. Unmarked road construction, surfaces that freeze quickly and aren’t marked with warning signs, slippery roads, dangerous speed limits, and dangerously winding roads can all contribute to motorcycle accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Florida – including Harley and sportbike accidents – caused by a hazardous road condition, we can help. Please contact us today.
