Liability in Motorcycle Accident Cases

Traffic accidents can cause devastating personal injuries for people without adequate safety precautions. Drivers and passengers of cars, trucks, and vans have extensive protection due to seat belts, air bags, and the metal vehicles encasing them. Motorcyclists, on the other hand, have none of these safety measures. The only protection that a motorcyclist has in a crash is a helmet and any protective clothing that he or she may be wearing. Motorists must therefore be very alert and watch out for motorcyclists on the road. Should someone in a car fail to pay attention and cause a motorcycle accident, the negligent driver can be held responsible for the motorcyclist's extensive damages.

Serious Motorcycle Accident Injuries

When a motorist collides with a motorcyclist, the damage is likely to be severe. Motorcyclists commonly suffer the following injuries in a crash:

  • Road rash
  • Broken bones
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Road rash can leave significant scars and may require skin grafting. Broken bones can take weeks or months to heal and even longer to return to their full strength. Neck and back injuries can leave a victim unable to walk, sit, or stand without discomfort or pain. Brain injuries can cause irreversible brain damage, and spinal cord injuries can result in paralysis. Anyone who has suffered such serious damages deserves fair compensation.
