About Motorcycle Injury
The elements of a motorcycle that attract their riders are also the elements that offer very little protection to riders in the event of an accident. Motorcycles are not enclosed vehicles; therefore, they are not equipped with things like protective air bags. In fact, nothing stands between the rider and any potential force hurling towards them. In addition, though riders are encouraged to wear more protective gear than that which is legally required, such as helmets, they may choose not to wear items like gloves, long sleeves, pants, or goggles, all of which may provide protection from lacerations. More serious and sometimes fatal injuries resulting from these accidents can include trauma to the head, spine, or limbs, which can have severe, life-altering effects on the rider’s life. Unfortunately, even death can result from motorcycle accidents, which would be considered wrongful death if the accident is a result of driver negligence.
