Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are some of the most catastrophic of all traffic accidents. No matter how careful a motorcyclist may be, there are always careless and negligent drivers who change lanes and turn corners without bothering to check for motorcyclists who are beside them.

There is very little protection for motorcyclists in a crash, even when they are wearing an expensive helmet and protective clothing. Other motorists have seat belts, air bags, and are encased in their vehicle. Motorcyclists have none of these and suffer direct impact with the vehicle and the road. The resulting injuries often include road rash, broken bones, neck injuries, brain injuries, and/or spinal cord injuries.
