Of all the
auto accident cases our firm handles, motorcycle accidents are frequently the most serious.
The injuries a motorcycle rider is likely to sustain in a traffic crash
are almost always many times more severe than the injuries other motorists
may suffer. The smaller size of a motorcycle and the fact that the rider
is virtually unprotected in the event of a collision combine to make these
accidents catastrophic and even fatal.
Causes of Motorcycle Injuries
Statistics show that motorcycle riding is a much more dangerous activity
than driving in a vehicle. The main reason for this is the difference
in weights of a car and a motorcycle when involved in an accident, as
well as the lack of protection to the body.
Because of the speed and lack of protection when involved in a motorcycle
accident, injuries sustained can be severe, if not fatal. Many serious
injuries occur, including fractures,
brain and spinal cord injuries, comas, loss of limbs and even
death. It is often negligence on the part of the vehicle driver that causes
motorcycle accidents, normally due to cell phone use, inattention, disregarding
driving under the influence of alcohol or speeding. Because of the
catastrophic injuries that can result, you may very well require long term medical care. Permanent
disability can result, causing you to be unable to have gainful employment.
In addition to these factors, the emotional and physical trauma and suffering
that occurs can be life changing.
