According to the United States Department of Transportation, Motorcycle riders continue to overrepresent in fatal traffic crashes. Reportedly motorcycle riders are 26 times more likely to die in a traffic collision than passenger vehicle occupants and five times more likely to suffer injuries. In fact, 80% of all motorcycle accidents result in an injury. The statistics are striking. We remind both drivers and motorcyclists alike to be alert and share the road so that we may all make it home safely. However, if you are injured, we have personal injury lawyer Dallas affiliates to represent you.
To our motorcyclist friends specifically, make yourselves as visible as possible. We advise you to use the DOT Approved Motorcycle Helmets to protect your most precious asset. So, should you ever be in a severe motorcycle accident, the odds of successfully safeguarding your head are at their highest. Furthermore, motorcyclists should protect their extremities completely, ideally with padding, heavy denim, or leather. It is also highly recommended that you wear brightly colored clothing made with reflective material to heighten your visibility on the road.
Unfortunately, regardless of safety equipment, most motorcycle accidents result in all kinds of injuries, from mild to severe. The most fatal and crippling motorcycle accidents occur when the bike chassis is the point of impact. The following are the most common resulting injuries suffered by motorcyclists:
- leg injuries
- traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- road rash
- spinal cord injuries
- internal injuries
- muscle damage
- head neck
Many of the injuries sustained from motorcycle accidents can be deceiving, for instance, road rash. Road rash shouldn’t be confused with merely falling and scraping your knee. If road rash is not correctly cared for, the injury may develop into permanent damage such as surface nerve damage, skin irritations, and infections. Additionally, the stress of the personal injuries may lead to depression; meanwhile, the injuries themselves make daily life difficult.
Of course, motorcyclists should be practicing defensive driving techniques along with dutifully wearing protective equipment. However, you can not control the actions of fellow motorists. True, motorcyclists may very well be a fault in some circumstances. Nonetheless, research concludes that in most cases, it is the fault of the other driver.
