When a motorcycle rider is hit by a car or truck, there is often little that can be done to avoid serious injury. While helmets save lives, even riders who are wearing helmets can still suffer severe head and neck injuries, including catastrophic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis.
Unfortunately, even the safest motorcycle riders can face extreme risks when motorists drive recklessly and make careless mistakes. Tragically, a significant percentage of motorcycle accidents involving other vehicles are fatal. When a driver’s negligence is to blame for a rider’s injuries, the driver deserves to be held fully accountable under the law.
