Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle riders have little protection against severe injury and can suffer many life-threatening consequences if they are involved in an accident. These may include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Severed limbs
- Internal injuries
Causes of Motorcycle Accident Injuries
It is difficult for a motorcycle rider to stay in the line of vision of other drivers. Shifting a mere two feet in either direction can cause the bike to disappear from view. It is all too often that the driver of a motor vehicle misses seeing a motorcycle through its side or rear mirrors. The result may be a devastating injury which often leads to months of recovery and in the most severe cases, the loss of a life. Common causes of motorcycle accident injuries involve:
- Negligence of other drivers
- Vehicle defects
- Roads in need of repair
The majority of motorcycle riders exercise safe and responsible habits when riding their bikes. However, it only takes the negligence of one automobile driver to cause a serious accident. The aftermath of a motorcycle accident can drastically change the lives of the injured rider and the rider’s family forever. This is especially true if there has been a brain or spinal injury or any other injury that caused permanent disability.
Riding a motorcycle can be an exciting and enjoyable experience when the rider is prepared to responsibly share the road with other vehicles. The danger often lies with other drivers who either cannot see the motorcycle, or are driving too close to it.
