Motorcycle Accident Injuries

While any accident involving motor vehicles can be dangerous, motorcycles are especially vulnerable because they don’t have the safety features cars do.  Because of the lack of safety features, motorcycle accidents result in more severe injuries and fatalities than car accidents.  

Types of injuries that can occur include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Burns
  • Internal injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Fractured and broken bones
  • Torn ligaments
  • Amputations
  • Emotional pain and suffering

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents happen for many different reasons.  One of the leading factors is other drivers fail to pay attention to bikers.

 Some common causes include:

  • Drivers of cars, SUVs, and trucks have a harder time seeing motorcycles
  • Motorcycles are easily side-swiped
  • Drivers of other vehicles often fail to maintain proper following distance from motorcycles
  • Motorcycles are more vulnerable to hazardous weather conditions
  • Motorcycles require more skill to drive
  • Motorcycles become more unstable at high speeds
  • Ejection from motorcycles is a common result of impact

Although motorcycle accidents are usually caused by other drivers, juries tend to be biased against motorcyclists, assuming they drive more recklessly than people in cars.  This can make obtaining fair compensation for your injuries more difficult.

At Caputo and Mariotti, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate all the details of your accidents, compile all your medical records, interview witnesses, and consult with experts when necessary.
