Motorcyclists are Vulnerable to Negligent Drivers

The injuries suffered by individuals in motor vehicle collisions can range from very minor to catastrophic. The danger of life-altering injuries is even more prevalent in crashes involving motorcycles when the less-protected operator can be easily ejected or dumped onto the roadway when another vehicle fails to appreciate the presence of a motorcycle or is not paying attention to their surroundings.

Accidents involving motorcycles often result in death or catastrophic injuries. Although protective gear such as helmets may reduce injuries, even at low speeds motorcyclists can be severely injured.

Common motorcycle injuries include:

  • Brain injuries

  • Fractures

  • Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis                                     

  • Serious neck and back soft tissue injuries

  • Road rash and other burns
