Motorcycles lack seat belts, airbags, and other safety features commonly found in cars. As a result, the rate of injury and death is significantly higher in motorcycle accidents.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Because motorcycles do not offer the protection of a vehicle, the person on the motorcycle is usually the most seriously injured in an accident involving a car or truck and a motorcycle. The injuries can be quite serious and the healing process extensive. In some cases, the injury results in a long-term or permanent disability.
Motorcycle accidents may cause injuries such as:
- Fractures, broken bones, and dislocations
- Hand and wrist injuries
- Leg, ankle, and foot injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Road rash from contact with the asphalt
