Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Reports show that three out of four fatal bicycle accidents involve deadly head injuries, and it is imperative to the safety of cyclists that they wear a helmet whenever they ride. A cyclist is 14 times more likely to die in a bicycle accident if he or she is not wearing a helmet. The injuries that can result from even a minor accident can result in costly medical treatments, and the victims of these accidents deserve to be compensated for their pain and suffering.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are responsible for approximately 50,000 injuries and 3,000 deaths every year in the United States. Of all the types of motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents are the most likely to result in fatalities, in which case a wrongful death claim will need to be made.
The most common causes of motorcycle accidents are:
- Road Hazards: Uneven pavement, potholes, debris, and puddles are known to cause motorcycle accidents.
- Weather Conditions: Rain, hail, wind, and snow increase dangerous driving conditions.
- Unsafe Vehicle Maneuvering: Speeding, improper turning, etc.
- Limited Motorcycle Visibility: Motorcycles aren’t as visible to other cars.
- Vehicle Blind Spots: Motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles and are sometimes overlooked by careless drivers.
- Mechanical Defects: Motorcycle parts and systems can malfunction.
The Serious Nature of Motorcycle Accidents
Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Road rash
- Broken bones, fractures, and joint dislocations
- Soft tissue damages
- Loss of limbs or amputation
- Swelling, bruising, bleeding, and scarring
- Head trauma, including traumatic brain injuries
- Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
Motorcyclists may take the proper precautions by wearing protective helmets, shields, and boots. Unfortunately, there is no safety net to protect a motorcyclist from the impending damages after a collision involving any type of car, truck, or commercial vehicle.
Why You Should Never Sign the Dotted Line
Insurance companies and healthcare providers are merely cogs in a billion-dollar industry. Do not expect your insurance company to be looking out for your best interests after an accident. Many companies and insurance adjusters will try to get you to settle for money that is far less than what you are actually entitled to – forcing you to pay additional out-of-pocket expenses after an accident.
