Common Motorcycle Crash Injuries
In comes as no surprise that motorcyclists are at greater risk on the roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 80 percent of motorcycle accidents result in injury or death. In many cases, these tragic crashes are the fault of a car driver, not the motorcyclist. Some of the most common injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident include:
Many of these traumatic injuries can require extensive medical care, a considerable amount of rehabilitative therapy and substantial time away from work. Most families are not able to shoulder these financial burdens, and the ultimate ramifications can be dire.
Causes of Denver Motorcycle Accidents
Riding a motorcycle requires a deft combination of skill and judgment. If you want to optimize your chances for a safe ride, you need to be prepared and avoid risks. “Being prepared” means that you wear the right gear, including a helmet, protective clothing and eye protection. “Avoiding risks” means that you should drive defensively, avoid bad weather and never ride a bike that’s more than you can handle.
Still, even when riding safely and obeying the rules of the road, motorcycle accidents can happen. Some of the most common causes are:
- Collisions with cars: Many times, car and truck drivers simply don’t – or can’t – see motorcyclists, either because of blind spots, dark conditions or poor weather.
- Sudden stops: Any rear-end collision can be dangerous, but for a motorcycle, it can be devastating. Sudden stops can easily eject a motorcyclist from a bike, head over heels into traffic.
- Open-door accidents: These particular kinds of accidents are common in Denver’s densely urban areas. Even when car occupants check their mirrors before opening a door, they may not see an oncoming motorcycle, and put the rider’s life in jeopardy.
