Motorcycle accidents are extremely common and can have devastating consequences. Motorcyclists face specific challenges on the road. Often times, drivers do not see motorcyclists or cannot slow down fast enough to avoid rear-ending motorcyclists. Motorcycles can come to a stop much faster than cars or other traditional motor vehicles. When this happens, bike riders are at a higher risk for injury because they are exposed. This exposure is due to the fact that riders are not encased in the steel frame of a traditional motor vehicle. Lack of this steel protection, and the ability to ride without a helmet, increases the risk of serious injury to the rider.
Riders can sustain brain injuries, major burns, bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, neck injuries, broken ribs, road rash and a plethora of other serious injuries or even death. According to the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine, fatalities of older riders have been on the rise as a result of motorcycle accidents. Many of these injuries are lifelong and require a considerable amount of treatment and therapy. Some victims never regain their pre-accident quality of life.
