When a motorcycle is hit by a car or truck, the injuries are likely to be serious. Even if you are wearing a helmet, you can still suffer very severe head and neck injuries, including catastrophic brain injury, paralysis and even death. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle crashes include:
- Distracted or inattentive drivers
- Drivers violating a motorcyclists’ right of way
- Aggressive drivers, including road rage
- Excessive speeding and reckless driving
- Dangerous or defective road conditions
- Poor weather conditions and visibility
- Defective motorcycles and motorcycle equipment
When a motorcycle is in an accident, the results can be deadly. While motorcyclists may be some of the safest and most experienced drivers on the road, when a crash occurs the motorcycle rider typically suffers the worst of it.
