Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accidents frequently result in the most serious injuries of any other type of traffic accident. This is mainly due to one factor, that of the lack of protection that a rider enjoys when navigating roads and highways. A fully protected rider will only have a helmet, pads, and riding leathers separating them from vehicles and stationary objects in a collision, and many riders choose to go without any manner of protection at all. This can lead to life-altering injuries in an accident that include fractured or crushed bones, serious brain damage, spinal cord trauma (resulting in paralysis), internal injuries such as hemorrhaging, and coma. If the accident is severe enough, it may even leave the rider fatally wounded. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a motorcycle rider is nine times more likely to be injured in an accident, and 37 times more likely to be killed, than those riding in a passenger vehicle at the time of a collision.
