Injuries from a Bike Crash
Every motorcycle accident is unique, but all share a high risk for serious injuries. Being thrown from a bike or being hit by another vehicle can cause life-changing, or even fatal, injuries. People in vehicles have the benefit of a two-ton steel cage of protection, but bikers don’t. Common injuries suffered from motorcycle crashes include:
- Broken bones and fractures
- Head and neck injuries
- Spine injuries
- Internal injuries
Crash injuries can cause more than just health problems. They can affect your home life, your work life, and every other aspect of life for weeks, months, or even years. Motorcycle injuries can prevent victims from working, leading to lost wages. They can also make recreational activities more difficult, reducing quality of life. These damages are compensable.
What Causes Motorcycle Accidents
Many motorcyclists are injured as the result of another driver’s negligence. Other drivers are supposed to treat motorcycles as they would other cars, but this doesn’t always happen. Cars may follow too close to motorcycles, not allowing any time to react to the situation on the road. Cars may make unsafe lane changes, failing to check their blind spots for the motorcycle in the next lane. And distracted drivers may not even see bikers at all before crashing into them.
