Motorcycle Accident Injuries
With the rising cost of fuel, coupled with the economic downturn in recent years, motorcycles offer a number of benefits to Americans. Not only are they significantly less expensive than passenger sized cars and trucks, but they use far less gas, and they can make getting home during 5:00 rush hour a piece of cake.
Whether you drive a motorcycle because it’s more affordable and convenient, or if riding a motorcycle is a part of who you are, while there are many conveniences associated with riding, unfortunately drivers of automobiles have a problem yielding the right of way to motorcycle riders, which can spell disaster for the motorcyclist due to their overall lack of protection.
Of the many types of motor vehicle accidents that occur in the United States each year, motorcycle accidents are often amongst the most injurious, and the most deadly. Unlike those riding in cars, trucks, or other passenger vehicles, motorcycle riders are without any of the standard safety protections such as seatbelts or airbags. In best-case scenarios, they are fitted only with a helmet, boots, gloves, and riding leathers. Unfortunately, in most cases riders are not wearing all of these safety items, which leaves them extremely vulnerable to serious injuries and even death in the event of an accident.
It has been reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that motorcycle riders are 37 times more likely to be killed in an accident than those in passenger vehicles, as well as 9 times more likely to be injured. These injuries can include internal injuries, broken bones, lacerations, abrasions, brain or spinal cord damage, and coma.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is your right to seek injury compensation from those responsible. Contact a Denver motorcycle accident lawyer who can significantly better your chances of obtaining that compensation by providing you with high quality, aggressive representation in your case.
