The Effects Of Motorcycle Accidents

Accidents involving motorcycles typically result in catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and sometimes fatal injuries. This is greatly due to the fact that motorcycles offer less protection than other vehicles on the road. Drivers and passengers in cars and trucks benefit from seat belts, air bags and a frame as safety barriers. Motorcyclists must rely on protective gear they wear — which may not be much — and utilize safe driving practices. Motorcycle riders also depend on other motorists to drive with caution and acknowledge their presence on the road.

Common Causes Of Motorcycle Injuries

Motorcycle accidents happen for a number of reasons. Sometimes the weather is a factor. Other times defective equipment or inadequate vehicle maintenance is to blame. Unfortunately, most motorcycle accidents are caused by other motorists. Many accidents can be contributed to the carelessness and recklessness of other motorists, including:

  • Distracted drivers
  • Negligent truckers
  • Drunk drivers
  • Drivers who fail to share the road
