What is the most common motorcycle injury?
There’s no doubt that if you’ve been injured in a motorcycle crash with another driver, your injuries are probably serious. That’s because there’s little protection between you, the road, and other vehicles. And while wearing protective gear and a helmet can reduce the severity of some injuries, very few riders walk away from a crash unscathed. In fact, the most common injuries associated with motorcycle accidents are head injuries, which are rarely minor and often serious. Some other common motorcycle injuries include:
- Road rash
- Broken or fractured bones
- Internal injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Biker’s arm (nerve damage)
- Soft tissue injuries
- Amputated limbs
If you’ve sustained an injury in a motorcycle wreck that was caused by someone else, it’s critical to get medical treatment as soon as possible. Getting you better and back to normal is our law firm’s top priority, but from a legal standpoint, documenting your injuries and the care you receive is just as important. If you wait to get checked out by a doctor or don’t follow up with your appointments, it can have a negative impact on the outcome of your case. Insurance companies may start to question the severity of your injury and try to reduce or deny your claim if you wait to get treatment or don’t keep up with your doctor appointments. That’s why no matter how minor you may think your motorcycle accident injury is, it’s a good idea to see a doctor as soon as possible.
What is the most common cause of motorcycle accidents?
While some people may think motorcyclists are just reckless risk takers who cause their own crashes by being irresponsible, the majority of motorcycle accidents that take place with other vehicles happen due to the negligence of other drivers. Whether they were texting, talking on the phone, adjusting the radio or GPS, eating, drinking, or otherwise not paying full attention the road, other drivers often cause serious collisions with unsuspecting motorcyclists. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents are:
- Failure to yield or grant right of way
- Distracted driving
- Defective roads
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Dooring (opening a vehicle’s door into the path of a motorcyclist)
- Unsafe turns
- Improper lane changes
- Faulty motorcycle parts
No matter the excuse, if someone else contributed to or caused you to get injured in an accident, they can be held legally responsible for your damages. You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages from missed time at work, damage to your motorcycle and other personal property, pain, suffering, and more.
