Although many people prefer motorcycles as their mode of transportation and others enjoy recreational use, riders can be at higher risk for personal injury. Motorcyclists face a higher chance of severe injury if a motorcycle accident occurs. Motorcycle crashes also kill approximately 3,000 motorcyclists each year and are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Statistics show that motorcycle wrecks are usually not the fault of the motorcyclist but are instead the fault of the driver of the other vehicle.
Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can be devastating and sometimes life-threatening. The most common motorcycle accident injuries are:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Wrongful deaths
In addition to the injuries, there are the medical and financial concerns arising from the injuries that can be just as pressing for the victim and their family. People of compassion can appreciate the agony and trauma that victims of motorcycle accidents experience. If a person has lost a hand or a limb, there is only monetary compensation that can make up for that loss.
