Causes of Motorcycle Crashes

Motorcyclists put themselves in harm’s way with every ride and are at far higher risk of serious injury than other vehicle operators. Causes of motorcycle accident include the following:

Distracted Drivers
Drivers who are not paying attention are responsible for many serious or fatal motorcycle crashes. Failure to observe the motorcyclist in an adjoining lane or stopped ahead are common reasons for impact. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 4,957 motorcyclists were killed in 2012, a seven percent increase over the prior year.

Inattentive Drivers
Drivers who are too lazy to turn their heads to check blind spots are a danger to all vehicle operators, but particularly motorcyclists. An impact throws the rider to the roadway, where he or she can be subject to secondary impacts, with tragic consequences.

Speeding
A driver who chooses to exceed the speed limit, not uncommon in the Boston area, places everyone at risk. However, motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to be injured in an accident, as they are virtually unprotected.

Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are frequently seriously injured, even in slow-speed impacts. There are several types of serious injuries associated with accidents, including the following:

Broken Bones
The impact with the roadway often leads to broken bones, whether hip, elbow, arm, knee, leg, hand, or multiple fractures to one victim.

Traumatic Brain Injury
A helmet cannot fully protect against a severe brain injury, with long term consequences. Diminished cognitive ability, physical mobility, coma, or a victim left in a vegetative state are all possible when the head has been impacted in a accident.

Internal Injuries
The body’s systems can be severely injured in a motorcycle accident, with consequences such as organ damage and hemorrhage, or internal bleeding, which is extremely dangerous and potentially fatal. Bleeding around the lungs, tears in blood vessels, and damage to internal organs such as liver or spleen or perforation of other soft organs are all possible.

Severe Abrasions
The deep abrasions suffered in a crash are difficult to treat and prone to serious infections due to the material from the roadway becoming imbedded in the skin. In some cases, the scarring is so serious that the result is permanent disfigurement.

Spinal Cord Injury
Damage to the spinal cord is particularly dangerous, as medical science has not yet advanced to the point in which some types of damage to the nerve bundle can be repaired. Depending upon the location of the injury, a rider can suffer permanent physical impairments such as paraplegia or quadriplegia.

Call us now so we can help you. We offer a free case evaluation to help find out what your case is worth. Don’t forget, we offer a 30-day, risk-free, guarantee: If you are unhappy for any reason within the first 30 days, your file will be returned free of charge.

Motorcycle Accidents

How should I choose a motorcycle accident lawyer?

You want a lawyer that will work with you directly, rather than shuffling you off to an assistant. You want a trial lawyer; not an attorney that just tries to get a case settled and moves on. The amount you recover in damages will be in large part, based upon the actions taken by your attorney. A young and aggressive attorney that goes the extra mile could be of great benefit, as your case will get the attention it deserves. Talk to us at Kelly & Soto Law for help.

How much will my case be worth?

Every motorcycle accident is valued based upon the level of the injuries sustained and the long term effect upon the victim. For example, a person who has suffered a serious head or brain injury may recover to some degree, but will be unable to work any time soon, if ever. Other injuries, such as broken bones or severe abrasions may require many months of treatment to resolve. If you are wondering how much your specific motorcycle accident case is worth, you have come to the right place, as Kelly & Soto Law offers a free case evaluation, with no obligation. Connect with us – you deserve the help.
