Motorcycle Accidents cause fatalities every year throughout the United States. Due to the increased susceptibility of motorcycles, motorcycle accidents often result in devastating injuries and death.
In the majority of motorcycle accident cases, the driver of the other vehicle is often the cause of the accident and the resulting damages suffered by the motorcycle operator. Those damages include medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering and damages to the motorcycle. In some cases, public entities such as a state, county or city, may also be liable if roads, signals, etc., are not properly designed or maintained properly. Also, if the accident was caused by a defective component of the motorcycle, the motorcycle manufacturer or repairer may be liable.
A motorcyclist, even if protected by riding gear and a helmet, is much more likely to suffer injury if involved in a collision and is vulnerable to serious injuries, including:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Head injuries
- Burns / scrapes (road rash)
- Emotional trauma
- Disfigurement or facial injuries
