Many people enjoy the fun and adventurous pastime of motorcycle riding. Unfortunately, even when motorcyclists are cautious, crashes still occur due to other drivers being negligent and making poor decisions. Even with proper protective equipment, such as a helmet, motorcyclists still do not have much protection; therefore, a motorbike crash may not only cause serious personal injury, they can be fatal.
Motorcycle injuries can result in devastating consequences, which include:
- Brain Injuries
- Bone Fractures
- Severe Abrasions
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Wrongful Death
Many individuals argue the fact that a lot of motorcyclists are at fault for a crash, but this is usually not so. They may also suggest that most motorcyclists do not wear their helmet, are intoxicated while operating their motorbike, or were simply driving in a negligent manner. The facts are, most motorcyclists are skilled drivers and well aware of the risks they take by riding a motorbike, and therefore take proper precautions. Statistics also show that out of all motorbike fatalities that occur, 82% of the riders were wearing their helmet. Additionally, the majority did not have any traces of alcohol in their system.
