Whenever a motorcycle collides with another vehicle, the potential for serious personal injuries is very high. Unlike drivers who are surrounded by a vehicle and are protected by a multitude of safety features, riders have very little personal protection in the event of a motorcycle accident.
Motorcycle accidents often result in brain injuries, injuries to the spinal cord and back, broken bones, and painful road rash injuries. These injuries often require serious medical attention and surgery. In addition, recovery from these injuries often means a loss in income during the time that the injured motorcyclist is unable to work.
