Motorcycle accidents occur far more often than car wrecks and the fatality rate is much higher. Many motorcycle related injuries occur when there is not even a collision. A driver may fail to yield the right of way or encroach on the motorcycle’s lane causing the rider to lose control because of the threat of a collision resulting in being seriously injured. When a motorcycle is struck the rider is often thrown against the pavement or another vehicle.

Despite how safe and appropriate a rider may drive, the predominate cause of motorcycle injuries result from automobile drivers failing to recognize motorcycles in traffic. Because the rider is mostly unprotected, these accidents result in a wide range of injuries to the rider. The rider can receive a concussion or brain damage from striking an object or the pavement even with a helmet. Joint breaking at the elbows, shoulders, pelvis, knees, wrist, and fingers is a common injury. Road rash where the rider’s body slides across the pavement can be minor or very severe. Biker’s Arm can occur where the nerves are damaged in the rider’s arm causing paralysis. Facial disfigurement can occur when there is trauma to the riders face.
