Motorcyclists are fully exposed to the elements around them. As a result, motorcycle accident injuries can range tremendously in severity and nature, but even minor accidents can leave victims with serious injuries or scars.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents, contrary to popular belief, are not always the fault of the biker. A large percentage of collisions are caused by car or truck drivers. It is the biker, however, who usually suffers the brunt of the damage from the crash. Negligent acts that may cause an accident include:

  • Swerving in front of a cyclist
  • Cutting off motorcyclists at intersections
  • Failing to follow posted speed limits
  • Failing to yield when appropriate
  • Failing leave sufficient room between the vehicles
  • Failure to see a motorcyclist changing or entering lanes
  • Neglecting to pay appropriate attention to other drivers
  • Driving under the influence

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists have little protection aside from their helmets. Injuries sustained in an accident can be severe or life-threatening.

  • Bone fractures
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of limbs
  • Neck injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Brain damage
  • Severe head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Death
