Motorcycle accidents are caused by a variety of factors

There is no single factor that makes up the majority of motorcycle accidents. Instead, there are many different situations that can lead to a motorcycle crash. They include:

  • Inexperienced riders
  • Speeding
  • Riding while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Distracted driving
  • Riding around traffic
  • Tailgating
  • Weather conditions
  • Road conditions

When a rider fails to wear protective equipment does not use it correctly, their chance of death or catastrophic injury increases significantly.

Motorcycle accidents are often very serious

In many motorcycle accidents, the point of contact is the front of the motorbike, which is generally where the most catastrophic and fatal injuries occur, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

As a result, there are significant expenses, including bodily and mental anguish, high medical bills, missed work, and property damage, among other things. Furthermore, you may be left wondering whether or not you will ever again be able to bike. If the collision was not your fault, or if it was caused by the negligence of another motorist, you have options.

Assignment negligence

It is necessary to identify the factors that contributed to an accident in order to establish who was at blame, or the degree to which each person was at fault, and, as a result, who was financially liable. This determination can be difficult, and there is a good possibility that all parties will not agree on it.

Depending on whether there were equipment failures, poor road conditions, public vehicles, or other impediments involved in the collision, the case may grow more difficult. As a result of these complicated issues, having an experienced attorney on your side becomes even more critical.

Common injuries caused by motorcycle accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the United States estimates that motorcycles that experience a collision have a 16 times greater risk of injury and a 35 times greater chance of fatality when compared with passenger vehicles.

Younger, less experienced riders are particularly susceptible to these rates, which are frequently higher among them. Every year, hundreds of people are killed and countless others are injured as a consequence of motorbike accidents.

The legs and feet are the body parts that are most commonly damaged by accidents. This is followed by the arms, and finally the head and neck, which account for 16.8 percent of all reported injuries.

Fractures and fractured bones are the most prevalent kind of injuries within this group. This is followed by less serious injuries such as contusions/abrasions, lacerations, and sprains, which are all included in the top ten injuries. Inevitably, severe injuries can occur, with the potential for paralysis and death.

Safety equipment can make a big difference

When safety equipment is used properly, it can frequently help to decrease the severity of injuries. Even in places where helmet use is not mandated by law, riders should always dress correctly and wear a helmet when riding. Helmets have been shown to be helpful in avoiding motorcycle fatalities, with helmets being 37 percent efficient in preventing motorcycle fatalities.
