Motorcycle Accidents Can Cause Major Injuries
Motorcycle accidents occur frequently on roads and highways and often lead to serious injuries or death. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 15 percent of the vehicle-related fatalities in 2012 involved motorcycles, mopeds, three-wheeled motor vehicles, scooters, mini bikes, or pocket bikes. Automobile drivers often cause a large number of motorcycle crashes because they fail to notice bikers on the road. Speeding, poor weather conditions, running a red light, not using turn signals and driving while intoxicated are also typical factors in motorcycle accidents.
Victims of motorcycle accidents often suffer injuries that are far more severe than those sustained in car accidents. Common injuries that result from bike crashes include, but are not limited to:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Road rash
- Facial fractures
Motorcycle accident victims and their families are entitled to compensation for their injuries, losses and suffering. Damages in these cases can be staggering due to the severity of the injuries bike crashes cause. Recoverable damages include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Property repair or replacement
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Funeral costs
