Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Navigating the streets on a motorcycle requires a heightened sense of awareness and caution. Despite these efforts, accidents can occur due to various factors. Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Negligent Drivers
- Unsafe Road Conditions
- Distracted Driving
- Impaired Driving
Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents frequently result in severe injuries due to the limited protection provided by motorcycles compared to enclosed vehicles. Some common injuries include:
- Head Injuries: Traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and skull fractures are common due to the lack of protective helmets.
- Spinal Cord Injuries: The impact of a motorcycle accident can cause serious damage to the spinal cord, leading to paralysis or long-term disabilities.
- Fractures and Broken Bones: The force of a collision may lead to fractures and broken bones, affecting the rider's limbs, ribs, or other skeletal structures.
- Road Rash: When a rider is tossed from their motorcycle, contact with the road surface can cause abrasions, commonly known as road rash, leading to skin injuries and infections.
- Internal Injuries: Blunt force trauma may cause internal injuries to organs, leading to life-threatening complications.
After a motorcycle accident, victims may be qualified for various economic and non-economic damages, depending based on the circumstances of the case. Potential damages include:
- Medical Expenses: Coverage for present and future medical bills that are related to the injuries sustained in the accident, including hospital stays, surgeries, medications, and rehabilitation.
- Lost Wages: Compensation for income lost because of the inability to work during recovery, as well as potential future loss of earning capacity.
- Pain and Suffering: Non-economic damages that account for the physical and emotional pain endured as an effect of the accident.
- Property Damage: Reimbursement for the restoration or replacement of the damaged motorcycle and other personal property.
- Wrongful Death Damages: In cases of fatal motorcycle accidents, surviving family members may be eligible for compensation for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and more.
