Although owning and riding a motorcycle are pleasurable activities, there is a much larger risk of being injured if you are involved in an accident.
Reports of traffic accidents involving motorcycles, most often result in the driver is thrown off the motorcycle, striking the ground or being thrown onto another vehicle or object with great force.
People who ride motorcycles should take extreme caution while commuting on open roads and freeways in Southern California.
Because motorcycles do not have a protective steel frame like automobiles, motorcycle riders have a much greater chance of sustaining painful, debilitating, and life-altering injuries in the event of an accident.
It is a fact that motorcycle riders are much more susceptible to catastrophic injuries than people who transport in other types of vehicles, including cars, trucks and SUVs.
Victims of motorcycle accidents frequently suffer:
- head trauma
- severe brain injuries
- spinal cord injuries
- broken bones
- internal bleeding
- crushed limbs
- permanent disability – as well as death.
Recovering from these types of injuries can take an extensive amount of time, incurring large medical bills as well.
All motorcycle accident victims are entitled to financial compensation for an accident that was caused by another person’s negligence or recklessness.
As in any accident, it is important to determine how and why the accident happened. There are factors that have to be considered:
- Was the motorcycle rider wearing the proper protective gear at the time of the accident?
- Did the motorcycle accident occur due to the rider’s error, or were there road defects or foreign objects that contributed to the incident?
