Nothing symbolizes American Freedom more than riding a Motorcycle. Unfortunately, many drivers do not keep a proper lookout for riders on the highway. This requires the rider to maintain a high level of skill in order to keep his or her lookout and maneuver the bike appropriately. Unlike passenger vehicles, motorcycles do not have an overhead layer of protection. This means that if a motorcyclist were to get into an accident, he or she would have to rely on skill alone for protection.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Sadly, the injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident are usually serious and even fatal. Some of the injuries that can result from a motorcycle accident include:
- Broken bones
- Neck and back injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
- Head Injury
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burn Injuries
Motorcycle Accidents Cause by Negligence
In most motorcycle accidents, the driver of a car or truck involved in the crash is the liable party. A driver may be negligent if he or she speeds through a red light or stop sign, or if the individual fails to look over his or her shoulder before changing lanes.
Due to the size of motorcycles, they can be harder to see than passenger vehicles and many drivers do not respect the riders’ right to the road. This puts motorcyclists at an even higher risk of being hit by the drivers around them.
