Do You Need A Motorcycle Injury Lawyer

Crashes with motorcycles are not rare events - particularly among some beginning riders. And one out of every five motorcycle crashes are shown to result in head or neck injuries. Head accident injuries are just as severe in motorcycle craches as neck injuries - and far more common. Crash analysis of a motorcycle shows that head and neck injuries account for a great majority of serious and fatal injuries to motorcyclists. Research with motorcycles also shows that, with few exceptions, head and neck injuries are reduced by the proper wearing of an approved head helmet.

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by:

  • Drunk driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Poor road conditions
  • Traffic congestion
  • Disregard of driving laws right of way
  • Motorcycle signaling error
  • Auto car driver negligence

Some riders do not wear helmets because they think helmets will limit their view to the sides. Others wear helmets only on long trips or when riding at high speeds. Here are some facts to consider:

An approved helmet lets you see as far to the sides as necessary. A study of more than 900 motorcycle crashes, where 40% of the riders wore helmets, did not find even one case in which a helmet kept a rider from spotting danger.
Most crashes happen on short trips (less than five miles long), just a few minutes after starting out. Most riders are riding slower than 30 mph when a crash occurs. At these speeds, helmets can cut both the number and the severity of head injuries by half.

No matter what the speed, helmeted riders are three times more likely to survive head injuries than those not wearing helmets at the time of the crash.

Almost every single motorcycle injury accident ends up in injury so the damages experienced can be extensive.
