COMMON CAUSES OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
Although riding a motorcycle comes with risks, a majority of motorcycle crashes are caused by negligent motorists.
The leading sources of motorcycle accidents include:
- Alcohol or drug use
- Unsafe lane changes
- Drivers failing to check blind spots for riders
- Defective motorcycle parts
Following a motorcycle crash, it is important that you talk to an attorney about preserving evidence and how to file a claim for compensation.
MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS CAN CAUSE TRAUMATIC INJURIES
Motorcycle crashes are rarely anything less than serious accidents. Unlike passengers of cars, trucks, and other motor vehicles, motorcyclists are not protected by a seat belt, air bags, or a metal frame surrounding them. They have a helmet and protective clothing – and that’s it. Because of such minimal protection, most motorcyclists suffer catastrophic injury in a collision.
Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Road Rash
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
