Motorcycles offer minimal protection and therefore the probability of a fatality is far greater than an accident involving a car or truck. Safe operation of a motorcycle requires skill and attention to weather and road conditions. Motorcyclists need to ride defensively and wear proper protection, including a helmet. Approved helmets help to prevent brain injury in the event of a motorcycle crash.
Despite the risks, motorcyclists love their bikes and find them convenient. In the event that someone’s negligence causes a motorcycle accident and you sustain injuries, your life can change even to the extent of rendering you unable to care for yourself. A motorcycle accident can cause head trauma, brain injury, neck and back injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractured limbs, scarring and disfigurement, nerve damage and skin burns.
