Motorcycles are thrilling to ride, but they’re also notoriously dangerous. No matter how careful you are when you are out on your motorcycle, there is always the possibility that someone else’s recklessness or negligence could cause you to have an accident.
Compared to closed vehicles, motorcycles are more treacherous in the event of a crash, and motorcyclists and their passengers are more vulnerable to weather and adverse road conditions, especially when other drivers aren’t paying attention. This vulnerability can result in tragedy: According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, 5,286 people died in motorcycle accidents in the United States in 2016.
Motorcyclists are also more susceptible to injury in the event of a crash. Even when wearing appropriate safety gear such as a helmet, leather, and padding, you may suffer extensive injuries to the head, spinal cord, bones, skin, internal organs, and limbs, including crushing injuries requiring amputation of a foot, hand, leg, or arm.
Despite the risks, you shouldn’t suffer unnecessarily if you’re in a motorcycle accident due to someone else’s inattention. Careless drivers cause a significant number of motorcycle wrecks each year, including those that occur at intersections, while switching lanes, or as a result of texting while driving or driving while drunk. In these events, you may be entitled to damages for your injuries, such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
