Throughout the nation, many people enjoy the freedom that they get when on a motorcycle. Much of the freedom that people enjoy are the same problems that can lead to significant and catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain damage, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones.
It’s vital to recognize the reasons motorcycle accidents are so dangerous and just how severe the injuries can be. Below, we’ll provide you with the vital information you must know when moving forward and how to take legal action.
If you are a motorcyclist, you may often have equipment such as clothing, helmets, and in some cases pads to help keep you as safe as possible. However, you don’t have the same protection that comes with driving in a regular vehicle. There are no frames, no airbags, and no seat belts.
In motorcycle accidents, you may be subject to ejection from the vehicle. This can cause you to land on your head, neck, or back. With these accidents, it’s easy to see how you can have life-altering damages stemming from someone else’s negligent actions.
Some of the common motorcycle accidents include the following:
- Left turn crashes (either the driver or motorcyclist turning left)
- Sideswipe accidents
- Blindspot accidents
- Lane splitting
- Road hazards
Because these accidents can cause ejection, some of the most severe injuries may arise. Even wearing a helmet can leave you subject to a traumatic brain injury. You can also suffer a broken neck, spinal cord damage, a back injury, and more.
These are some of the most devastating injuries and can result in someone experiencing paralysis, cognitive issues, and more. It’s because of the severity of these injuries that you must work with legal counsel to pursue compensation that you need to cover many of the long-term expenses associated with these injuries.
