Over 80,000 motorcyclists are injured and some 4,000 killed in traffic crashes every year. The person operating the motorcycle was NOT at fault in more than 80% of the accidents involving multiple vehicles. If the person driving the other vehicle was negligent, careless or reckless, the operator of the motorcycle, and any passenger on the motorcycle, may be able to obtain compensation for their injuries.
In many motorcycle accidents, the operator of the other vehicle was following too closely and rear-ended the bike, sideswiped the motorcycle, or hit the motorcycle head-on. Motorcycle accidents often lead to serious injuries. The severity depends on a wide range on factors, such as:
- The speed involved
- The motorcyclist’s size
- Whether the motorcyclist (or passenger) was wearing a helmet
Common injuries to motorcyclists and passengers include broken bones, scarring and disfigurement, brain damage, spinal cord damage, partial or complete paralysis, and loss of life (sometimes following a long coma). Multiple visits to the doctor, multiple surgeries, prescription medications, physical rehabilitation and more can lead to extreme financial pressure. Sadly, the suffering of motorcycle accident victims often goes well beyond their physical injuries, and include:
- Change in personality
- Diminished cognitive abilities
- Inability to return to a previous job, or inability to work at all
- Severe depression
