Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcyclists tend to sustain more serious injuries than their automobile-driving counterparts because of their lack of protection. Unfortunately, no matter how much protection a motorcyclist is wearing, another driver’s negligence will almost always cause substantial trauma. A helmet, leathers and boots are often not enough.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Road Rash
- Broken Bones
- Head Trauma or Brain Injury
- Nerve Pain and Damage
- Muscle Damage
- Leg Injuries
- Facial Injuries or Fractures
In the complex cases of motorcycle accidents, your medical needs and injuries are not the only thing worth fighting for. You are entitled to compensation to help you pay for lost wages, property damage and disability-related damages, in addition to coverage of hospital bills and follow up doctors’ visits.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
The risk of injury, or death, is much greater for motorcyclists than car drivers due to the little protection they may have if an accident occurs. It is important for both motorcyclists, and other drivers, to be aware of the potential causes for these kinds of accidents, in order to help avoid them. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Lane Splitting
- Road Hazards
- Cars Turning Left in Front of Motorcycles
- Distracted Drivers
Georgia Helmet Law
In 1969 Georgia passed a mandatory helmet law. It is still in place and currently requires all riders and passengers, regardless of age and experience, to wear a helmet while on a motorcycle.
