Statistics show that motorcycle riding is more dangerous than driving in a passenger 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.
Motorcycle accidents are often caused by negligent acts such as:
- Cell phone use
- Disregarding traffic laws
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or speeding
- Failure to check blind spots for motorcyclists
We know how serious motorcycle injuries can be. Of all the auto accident cases our firm handles, victims of motorcycle accidents often suffer from the most debilitating injuries. This is because of the smaller size of a motorcycle compared to passenger vehicles and the fact that the rider is virtually unprotected in the event of a collision combine to make these accidents catastrophic and even fatal.
Even if you were wearing a helmet, you can still suffer from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, loss of limbs, serious bone fractures, and even death. 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.
