Motorcycle Accident Injuries Can Be Severe

Motorcycles are less visible than cars and trucks, and motorcyclists lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle. Therefore, they are more likely to be seriously injured or killed in a crash. The Insurance Information Institute estimated that, in 2015, the number of deaths on motorcycles per mile traveled was over 29 times the number in cars.

Motorcycle crashes can result in limb amputation as well as traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. The costs associated with a motorcycle accident are often very expensive. This is especially true in cases where the victim was severely injured as a result of the accident.

Common motorcycle injuries include:

  • Head injury
  • Road rash
  • Biker’s arm
  • Muscle damage
  • Leg injury

Common Causes Of Georgia And Nationwide Motorcycle Accidents

A negligent driver may cause a motorcycle crash due to speeding, disobeying traffic laws, drunk driving or distracted driving. Additional causes may include a defective part on the bike, adverse weather conditions or poor road maintenance.

By investigating your case and getting proof of what or who caused your motorcycle wreck, the Georgia personal injury lawyers at McArthur Law Firm can fight to hold that party liable for your injuries while you recover. We have the resources to help riders hurt statewide. This includes residents from Albany and Savannah in addition to those residing in Columbus, Augusta and Atlanta.

Common Types Of Motorcycle Collisions

Some of the common types of motorcycle collisions include the following:

  • Head-on collisions. This occurs when a car or another vehicle strikes a motorcyclist head-on. Such collisions are often deadly to the motorcyclist.
  • Rear-end collisions. This happens when a vehicle collides with the rear of a motorcycle. Often, this happens because a driver does not notice the motorcycle ahead.
  • Left-hand turn accidents. This happens when a vehicle turns left onto a road in front of an oncoming motorcycle that was not noticed by the driver.
