Motorcycle accidents can result in very serious injuries. Studies show that motorcycle riders are 26 times more likely to die in a crash than are motorists in cars and trucks. If a motorcycle rider is not wearing a motorcyle helmet at the time of an accident, the likelihood of a fatality is even greater.
Motorcycle accidents can be caused unsafe roads, dangerous road conditions, driver impairment from alcohol, drugs or fatigue, or a mechanical malfunction.Because motorcycles present a smaller profile and motorcyclist operate their vehicle different from automobiles, drivers in cars sometimes do not see a motorcyclist in their path until it is too late. Anytime a motorcycle rider is involved in an accident, he or she is likely to sustain very serious injuries. For example, broken bones, burns, road rash, traumatic brain injuries, and even paralysis are all common to motorcycle accidents.
